These appliances must have been created before built-in obsolescence became a requirement.


Bingo!

My mom's circa-1955 waffle iron.... Son now uses it daily.

We used a first gen microwave til we moved out of the house we installed it in, after plucking it off the curb of the folks foolish enough to "update." So heavy that they loaded it for me.... I think it got another ten years with us, on top of their stretch. I hope the landlady we just left it with doesn't take it out. Huge. Turkey size. Going strong.
