Description: A mix master food mixer, cream in colour with a metal stand and motor compartment. The mixer also features a black carrying handle at the top and a maker’s name plate on the front. The purchase of the mix master was considered quite a luxury at the time. It was first used to make a milkshake, followed by a sponge cake, and then put to use to squeeze oranges for fresh juice.
