This is in the kitchen of a 1963 house. I could not find out what it did or use to do. Can anyone tell me what this is. The knobs has numbers on it 1-5.

It is a Nu-Tone Kitchen Center.

There are attachments including Blender, Grinder, Mixer, etc ... that go along with this unit.

These are awesome units and were state of the art when they were originally manufactured over 20 years ago.

I still have one that is used regularly (Primarily for Margaritas, Pina Coladas, etc...)

Still available on Ebay....

I think the label says NUTONE.

Do you have a larger photo to zoom in on?

I had one in my old house. Nutone still makes them. They are very expensive. They do everything from blending, juiceing, mixing, knife sharpening to meat grinding. The new ones start at about $1,800.00 for the motor part that you see in the counter with the mixer attachment. The attachments start at around $150.00 each and go up from there. The new ones are no longer stainless they are white I think plastic.

The older ones like that one can he hazardous under the counter... I don't remember their being anything covering the wireing connections.

I bought my first house from my grandma who did a lot of canning. She used it a lot.

You can find them on the Nutone site. (Old & New are compatable)
