Blast from the Past: Fabulous Appliances of Yesteryear

Last week, I brought you gadgets of yesteryear. This week, I thought I'd go bigger. The kind of thing you got at an appliance store, something that used to be a lot more common before big-box stores became the norm. See how many you remember, and if you're too young, see how it used to be.

1. Amana Radarange microwave oven (1976) - With Barbara Hale of Perry Mason fame.
2. Maytag (1967) - This is the first of the "lonely repairman" spots, for all of Maytags appliances.

3. RCA ColorTrak TV (1979) - Sadly, not the one with Rula Lenska
4. Magnavox LaserDisc (1980s) - Not a commercial, but a demonstration, with Leonard Nimoy!

5. GE Dishwasher (1983)
6. Sears Appliances (1983) - Several appliances here, from a microwave to a VCR, a washer, a projection TV, and more.

7. Sharp Carousel microwave (1986)
8. Westinghouse Refrigerators (1968) - Here's a weird promo (longer than a commercial) for "Match Your Mood" customized fridges.

And we'll leave it there for this week, since this was a harder topic than I realized! It'll do for now though, and I'll see you back here next week. Meanwhile, have a great week. Happy Monday!
