Nothing that old here...

Mum started afresh with kitchen appliances when she moved here late 90s. All of these have been replaced at least once. The cooker would have been the longest lasting of these, I think being replaced 2 years ago because of problems with the oven.

The oldest device in the household would be my (c 1985) Amstrad PC1512. It's burried under a pile of stuff in a shed in a field though and, while it was functional when it was put there, I'd not rate its chances of working now.

The oldest known working device in the house is probably a Yamaha Midi module I bought only a few weeks back.They were introduced around 1995 so should be a good 20 years old there.
