Here's what a few customers think of my service...
"Not enough glowing adjectives to describe Dan - he's the best of the best!!!!!!!" - bhill@pineland.*
"Great products / great service! Decodan is THE source for refurb'ed Mixmasters!" - abird@shscares.*
| Mixer to right is the rare Chrome Model 10C Sunbeam. Only a few were produced as prototypes to the full production Chrome Model 11C.
"Dan is tops. He packs the item for shipment as if the item were fine crystal." - mcarreiro@sprynet.*
"Just wanted you to know that the KitchenAid arrived yesterday, and it is more beautiful than I could have imagined. The paint job is better than the factory job and it runs like a dream." - rexcrews@bellsouth.*
I just received my Kitchenaid coffee mill A9 in the mail this morning. It arrived in good shape, and it looks beautiful, like a brand new machine right out of the factory door. Kathy McCullagh-Pauszek
Wanted to let you know that the beautiful cream and pink GE three-beater you redid for me a couple of years back -- with matching custard bowls and a juicer I found -- just won Best in Fair for Collectibles at the Alabama National Fair. Thanks for a glorious job. Warmly, Chris
|Sunbeam Toy Mixmaster with Jadeite bowl was an actual 110 volt toy in the 1930s. What were they thinking....
|Art Deco WestingHouse Food Crafter|
To the left is a Westinghouse FoodCrafter. The bowls were china made by the Hall Co. with a black glaze outside and white glaze inside. The juicer bowl was glass. It is a deep amethyst or cobalt blue giving it the appearance of black.
This mixer was done for a friend, thanks Rich ~aka~ Philacollect. I can recondition many different models and types for you too. Just email me to inquire about cost and time frame.
| KitchenAid Model H|
To the left is one of the first KitchenAid home mixers. According to KitchenAid production started in 1915 and went to 1927. This is the KitchenAid Model H-5. It has 5 quart bowls with lift handle and power hub for attachments. This unit sold for $189.50 in 1915, no attachments included. Surely the top of the line at the time. Solid cast iron construction. It has been through the Decodan process. I acquired this mixer from a dealer (thanks, Linda) who bought it from the estate of the original owner. It came with 4 bowls; bowl lift handle; pour chute; splash guard; 2 beaters; whisk; dough hook; pastry knife; juicer attachment; food grinder; pelican head with slicer, shredder and ice chopper; can opener and a spare set of brushes. This was a custom match color, as close to original as possible.
This mixer was sold back to KitchenAid for display at their headquarters.
|Kitchen Aid Model G|
Production started in 1927 and this example was produced early in the production run. This model is the predecessor to the modern model K5SS mixer. It was also a 5 quart bowl with planetary mixing action.
As you can see the mixer changed quite a bit from the previous model pictured above. Besides changing from vertical to horizontal, it also changed casting material and weighed in at less than half the weight of the Model H.
Thanks to Tom for letting me restore his Mother's original mixer.
