Betty will always remember the November she and her husband bought their first Frigidaire, just in time for the holidays and her visiting Mother-in-law. Everyone was impressed with their new kitchen appliance. Now Betty can’t imagine life without it! With shelves of storage space, never again would Thanksgiving leftovers go to waste. Except someone forgot to put away her Mother-in-law’s cranberry jell-o mold, oh well.
In preparation for the holiday season add to your retro kitchen with these wonderfully mid century appliances. Created by Big Chill, each dishwasher, refrigerator and stove mixes 1950’s design with modern technology. Just because your fridge was made in the twenty first century doesn’t mean it has to look that way!

Betty spends every November preparing for Thanksgiving and remembering all that she is grateful for. As she begins to wash and organize her Heath ceramic dishes for the big day, she can’t help but feel lucky. With simple clean lines who wouldn’t appreciate each beautifully designed piece?
Edith Heath was one of the most influential designers of the 20th century. Her avant-garde ceramic dinnerware caught the attention of the nation. Her use of glazes and clay bodies added to her distinctive look. Her company Heath Ceramics also created architectural tiles, which won her the American Institute of Architects Gold Metal as well as the admiration of many architects including Frank Lloyd Wright and Eero Saarinen.
