A few years ago I posted this commercial for the 1956 Frigidaire Spray Tube dishwasher. Many of the newer members probably haven't seen it as I never added it to our library list. I have now redigitized it into a slighly larger picture than before and I added to our permenant collection.

It's a 3.6mb video file. If you would like to view it right click the link below and save target as...

Robert, Thankyou so much for sharing that awesome ad! I remember those things really could hold a big load BUT I also remember they RARELY got them clean! Anyway, they are fun to use. Don't you have one with a clear door? Best wishes--Steve

Thanks for sharing Robert, I always said this design should have been upgraded with a full size revolving arm at the bottom including the spray tube in the middle. Also a detergent cup would have been nice. Would have fit in better with later technology!

How cool!

I can't wait to get it up and running! Robert, Did someone say that you have a video of yours with the plexy on the front?
I would love to see it! Thanks for the video!
I'm a chicken to hook mine up! I guess I'd better get over it huh!

Fun Video!

That was a great video. I wonder what program it was aired on?
Thanks for loading it.

She's a smarty for getting a Frigidaire! They work great with 11,000 needle sprays and Orgami Packing!!

How long I wonder before all D/W's will be made Overseas??
As much as I admire the new LG Combo I just found out it uses the exact same configuration as the Original Bendix Duomatic.
So why aren't they still building them in South Bend Indiana??

That just flabbergasts me for some reason. I can't get my head around it.

Did you hear the sound that latch made!? It's like a '57 Cadillac!

I agree, I love that sound as well, quality like we sure don't hear today.
