This 1950s GE Fridge With Revolving Shelves Really Takes the Cake!


I would love to have this refrigerator! Presently I'm using a dated (but not cool vintage) model that does the job, but moving things out of the way on the shelves is an issue, especially considering my guinea pigs have their own section! 

Look at how slick this is:

 
We could all use a little more PRESTO! in our lives. Also, look at the contents!


The stuffed peppers remind me of Dorothy Marr's Stuffed Peppers.

  1. I wonder why they don't make the revolving shelves anymore? But never mind the shelves, I love the dishes in there! Not much as far as plastic that I could see. My daughter is trying to become plastic free. I don't know if I could because they are so convenient. What have you discovered, Averyl, as far as any sort of plastics, if any, used in that era?

    1. I use very little plastic except for some food storage. Most of the food I store is in glass. I know that Tupperware was around in the 1950s but plastic isn't my thing so I'm not up on the plastics: )

  2. Some great ideas just disappear, don't they? As one who is often rearranging the fridge and fetching things that family members can't seem to find these revolving shelves look like a necessity. They probably never caught on or went away in the name of cubic feet.

    As for plastics I never microwave in them and prefer not to use them much but sometimes they just work. I usually use a glass dish (often from my estate sale finds!) with plastic wrap for leftovers but it doesn't touch the food.

    Great post!! :)
