10 Things Every ’50s Mom Had In Her Kitchen


The 1950s was a time of common kitchen items that would soon become an antique by today. They’re so special that you pretty much don’t see them anymore but stop by an antique shop and you’re sure to come across some decorative breadboxes or other popular ’50s items that may not even exist anymore.

Many of these items still actually exist but have changed drastically over time in terms of their appearance and how they work. We’re sure you’ll recognize these 10 things that every ’50s mom had in her kitchen!


1. Cookie Press

The ’50s cookie press was perfect for pumping out some delicious, homemade cookies of any flavor. Definitely looks a lot different these days!

2. Wall-hung GE Refrigerator

This refrigerator actually hung right up on the wall and looks like cabinets, but it’s actually a fridge. Instead of being long and tall like they are today, they were actually aligned straight across.


3. Cake Breaker

It’s definitely a little intimidating to look at, but it sure was a great tool for cutting delicate cakes back in the day!

4. Flour, Sugar, and Tea Canisters


You could find anything you needed in one of these vintage canisters. You won’t believe how much these vintage canisters can go for on eBay these days.


5. Butter Molds
