Waring’s best selling blender, the Professional, turned 75 this year. The photo above (then) is probably early 40s. The below photo (now) is the latest in the Professional line. I’ve used this model for over 20 years and aesthetics did play a part. It made a retro statement amid a sea of mediocre styling. There’s also a lot to say for simplicity for what a blender does. If you didn’t own one but frequented a bar from time to time you knew this appliance was loud. An accurate [ review ] No complaints and fond memories. Happy birthday.
