Take a Look-See: Party Chef by Cory


LIFE magazine, May 26, 1947

Perhaps best know for vacuum coffee pots and the patented “Cory coffee rod,” the Cory Corporation is also responsible for the flying saucer shaped gem that is the Party Chef electric skillet, patented in 1956. Behold, its brushed aluminum space-age greatness (click on any picture to enlarge):

So, how happy am I that my Christmas present to myself arrived today? Many thanks to Carmen and Ginger for creating the perfect shipping box! This gorgeous specimen appears to be unused, but I won’t let that stop me. Bring on the fried cereal!
