  7. My god. When I was little, we had what was once Grandmother Muscato's old GE wheezer. We lived in awe of the neighbors because of their fridge, and it wasn't a patch on your Cycla-Matic wonder!

  8. The fanciest (and funniest) appliance I remember as a kid, in the house, was an electric floor polisher for that extra glossy waxed hardwood floors! My brother and I used to ride that baby.
