……. have you ever seen one of these?
In 1981 Glynn and I bought a Holden Kingswood station wagon with a clip on camper in Sydney.
The plan was to drive around Australia. To equip our Camper kitchen we visited a huge Salvation Army shop in Sydney – fondly known by locals as the Tempe Tip.
One of the utensils I bought was a Kitchamajig. Engraved on this tool is this information:
Crushes, Strains, Whips and Lifts
Gosh, I thought, it’s practically a food processor! Yes it does do all these things. I have even whipped cream with this tool. It was and still remains my favourite kitchen tool.
I found an interesting article about this tool at HubPages
When I am in an OpShop I always scan the kitchen utensil section to see if I can find another Kitchamajig. I see you can buy a modern version on Amazon but I love the vintage look of the old ones. Not so common these days to find a kitchen tool which is stamped “Made in England”
If you spot one on an Opshop Hop grab it. You will be glad you did.
PS Yes we did drive right around Australia and yes, that is me before I became a platinum blonde.
