Kitchenaid Model G Commercial Mixer.
This is one of many models that were made & sold strictly by the Hobart Corporation. The popularity of this mixer became so overwhelming that Hobart had decided to change the name of the mixer to the N-50 with a few modifications & appearance changes!! Back then, it soon became a household name. Literally!! It got it's name by a consumer saying the phrase; 'I don't care what you call it. Whatever. it is probably the best kitchen aid that I've ever seen!!'
The Kitchenaid name went on in different household models after the antique ones & in the shape that it is today. Hobart had later sold the division in the mid '80s to the Whirlpool Corporation. & that is when Whilpool decided to cheapen the quality of the mixers, which had lead to so many complaints & bad reviews on the machines.
So when I found out about this model, I thought to myself that; Nothing can beat any new KA mixer better than one of the old ones!! It still works very nicely. even today. It feels almost as heavy as a baby elephant!! But that is the quality and materials used to make it back in the early to mid '30s, '40s possibly into the '50s, right into the time when the N-50 started being made.
Built to last!! The old saying. we still make them like we used to, doesn't hold true any more! Whilpool just can't lay any claims that it made THIS machine! It didn't. Most anything mechanical or in appearance that you buy for the N-50, it can be used for the Model G. Most consumers today are buying either the used N-50 or the used Model G to save money over a new N-50!! They really stand the test of time, even though they are used & might look shabby in appearance. They clean them up. fix them up if need be & repaint them to make them look brand spanking new!! I'm so glad that I bought one!!
