Rena Ware Electric Cooking Pot

8 Jul


This is an electric cooking pot by Rena Ware which dates to the 1960’s.  It has been thoroughly cleaned and now shines like new.  Heavy stainless steel construction.  Waterless cookware. Lid has 2 vent holes.  I took the whole thing apart and cleaned under all the handles to ensure it was ready to use.  In great condition overall for its age with only minor wear.

I found this information on the Rena Ware Website They are still in business today and going strong.

The Rena Ware story began when Dutch immigrant Fred “Pop” Zylstra and his wife Rena founded Rena Ware in 1941, choosing “water-less” cookware as the company’s core product and adopting a business model that would help others improve their lives. For over 70 years, Rena Ware has remained true to the principles upon which it was founded: honesty, integrity, courage, and the Golden Rule.

Cooking “Water-Less”

“Water-less” cooking means cooking food in the least possible amount of water—never boiling. It keeps the flavors fresh and intense. The food is cooked over low heat in specially designed utensils with self-basting covers that hold in steam and drench the food with its own flavorful goodness. Foods retain their natural essences, making vegetables tender and luscious, and meats succulent and juicy.

Portable Sears Solid State 8 Track Tape Player

9 Dec




I don’t have any 8 tracks to try out in this vintage player but it is in very nice overall condition and the red colour is quite eye catching.  8 track tapes came out in the 1960’s through to the early 80’s at which time they were phased out for cassette tapes.

A nice piece just to have as a memento of times gone by.

For sale at my booth in Almonte, ON, at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street.

Priced at $25

Please note this item is now SOLD!!

Vintage Westclox Clock 1950’s Atomic Style

22 Feb

westinghouse clock

This poor little clock doesn’t work but the style was so iconic of the 50’s that I had to have it just for display purposes. Hopefully I can get the clock working again.  The wood is probably teak and it sits on brass legs.  Made in Canada ca. 1950’s.

Please Note: This item is now SOLD!!

Retro Looking Clock Radio

15 Feb


This is probably a recently made  item but looked so cool and retro that I had to buy it.  It makes me think of the interior of an old car.   It is made of black plastic and works great.   I think it is newer because it is really light weight and the older plastics were much thicker and heavier.

Item now SOLD!!
