Today, I lost a good friend. My Oster Kitchen Center. We first meet in 1984. When I walked the Isles at Hills Dept. Store. She was on clearance,Last years model. I proudly took her home. She has been by my side trought cakes and icing over the years. I did cheat on the side and purchased a kitchen aid. It was not the same. I kept going back to my old girl. Today she gave her last whip and smoked to a stop. I will miss you....
i'm sorry for your loss
its funny how you become attched to things. I love that mixer it made such good icing.soo creamy. Its going to be hard to convert to a new one.
Rest in peace, faithful servant!
ah...sigh....I know the feeling well.
I received an Oster Kitchen Center from my Mom at my bridal shower in 1986. Had many of the attachments. The motor went a few years ago and DH found another one, minus attachments and bowls, at the Salvation Army store!! When I got my KitchenAid, I just could not get rid of the Kitchen Center....it is still happily in a cabinet and get used on occasion, usually to make ice cream!!
So sorry for your loss! Take comfort in the memories of many happy times you spent together!
Chin up! I've seen some of those at yard sales. Some that hardly look used. I know it would be quite the same, but she'd want you to move on, to find a new love!
Out of respect for the old girl, your new friend needs to be about her age--she'd never get over a younger sleeker woman taking her place--besides they just don't make 'em like they used to!
