Some Vintage Kitchen Fun!

Isn't it cool...I just love it!
It's a Salton "Hot Basket" made in 1980!
It looks just like a picnic basket.
And it appears to have never been used....the cord is still wrapped up
with its original twist tie in place.

As the brochure says:  A wonderful way to keep everything from apple turnovers
to baked potatoes fresh, hot and delicious! 
The "Hot Basket" will keep your dinner rolls serving hot throughout the meal!
Not only will it keep them hot and fresh...
it will even refresh yesterday's baked goods.

After a busy day...pick up some "finger lickin' good" chicken & ribs
and keep them serving hot in the "Hot Basket" until everyone's home for dinner.
The more you use it the more uses you'll find for it!

I am looking forward to making some homemade bread to put inside!

P.S....forgot to say...I bought it for $2.00 at my local thrift store!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

That is so cool! I am a bit horrified to think that 1980 is vintage because I swear the 80's were just yesterday LOL. But yeah, it's over 30 yrs ago. Geesh!! Let us know how it works!

Is 1980 vintage?...good grief:) My mum had one of those. It was used for potlucks etc for the Lion's Club socials and such. I still have her Rival crockpot that she bought when they first were sold...1971?? I think she used it twice. She wasn't a fan.

Debby said...

I think it is mine. I got one for a wedding gift and never used it. ZIt probably ended up in a thrift shop......guessing 70's.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

I love all of your comments, girls! I got it for only $2 at my local thrift store, Sharon. And yes, Juliet, I guess 1980 is now "vintage"! Can't believe it myself! Oh, Debby, it might indeed be yours...that is so funny! Do you think it made its way to the west coast? (stranger things have happened....kinda like a note in a bottle haha)

Holly said...

Who woulda thunk such a thing existed? Not me. Great find! Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment. Have a great day!

I want to come to your thrift store. You find the best deals, Carrie. Love the copper lids. I had a Salton something in the 70's,
Think it was a small basket for rolls.

Heidi said...

Neat-o find! Now THIS is why I shop at the thrift stores.....frequently! :) Let's get some warm cinnamon rolls loaded up!
Hugs, Heidi

That is so funny, I have never seen anything like it, but I just know you will make good use of it, do snap a picture when you do put it to good use! ox

The basket is very unique and how lucky you are to find it at such at outrageous price. I'm glad you showed it to us.
Have a great weekend. Shannon

LBP said...

I have never seen one one those either, but what a great idea. I would love to have one! I still can't wrap my head around something from 1980 being vintage. I guess that shows how old I am!!! That was the year I got married!

Blessings
