These are two 1950 magazine advertisements for West Bend products made by the West Bend Aluminum Co., West Bend, Wisconsin.
The first advertisement is for coffee makers, a 48-cup drip unit and a 18-cup drip unit. The second advertisement is for an electric bean pot (now known as a slow-cooker), an electric coffee percolator, and other assorted kitchen items.
The West Bend Company was a West Bend, Wisconsin company from 1911 to 2003. It manufactured aluminum cookware and electrical appliances (and also made two-stroke cycle engines including outboard boat motors). The home appliances unit of the West Bend Company is now known as West Bend Housewares.
