About Milkshake Mixers
Nothing beats the sumptuous taste of a classic malt, or the rich texture of a whipped cream topped milkshake. Milkshakes and milkshake mixers have a rich history going back to 1885 when the word milkshake first appeared in print. Originally, the drink was more of a health tonic with whiskey and eggnog; however, by the 1900s it took the shape of its modern day counterpart – a smooth mix of milk, sugar, and crushed ice. The Cyclone, Hamilton Beach's first drink mixer was made in 1911, popularizing the use of mixers to make malts and milkshakes throughout America. The history of milkshakes and milkshake mixers are so intertwined that the image of the classic spindle, the round mixing head, and the steel malt cup automatically sets the stage for making a frothy, milky drink. You can find a large inventory of vintage and newer models of these machines on eBay. Select the old Hamilton Beach Jadeite Green Model 30 malt milkshake mixer or a three head mixer for making multiple shakes. Mixers with brushed metal heads are also available.
