I was thinking of all the appliances I use on a daily basis and it occurred to me that the oldest one that I use every day is my mothers 1967 Oster 12 speed blender.
What is the oldest appliance that you use every day?

Well, if daily use is to be considered, at the moment it's a 1956 Universal coffee perk.  I do alternate perks and other smalls though!

I guess as a daily driver...

it'd have to be our '76 Frigidaire 30" range, several times a day, thanks to PhilR who found it!

It comes to me as a tie between my 1965 RCA Victor CTC-17XE color television and my 1965 RCA Whirlpool electric dryer. Both see everyday use and typically work flawlessly. They also have a beauty nothing modern can match.

Mine aren't that old. Daily driver is a 1985 Hotpoint Self Clean range, and once in a while a 1976 Sunbeam Mixmaster stand mixer.

We use our Toastmaster 1B6 pop-up toaster usually about 3 times a week. That model was made from 1936 to 1939. It's been my toaster since the mid-1980s when I bought it for $1.

But you did say "every day", so that would have to be our early 1960s Sunbeam model AP20 electric coffee percolator.

GE percolator

Without a doubt it is the 1960 GE percolator.
This is the model with the faceted look. Originally designed by Universal, GE marketed it after acquiring Universal.
Purchased it at the Salvation Army about 20 years ago. Unused condition. Works terrific.

Mu favorite is my 1960 Ironrite rotary mangle iron. It's still in great condition, and after a bit of a learning curve, I use it weekly.
