Rebuilt/Refurbished Vintage 1950's Arvin 4 x 4 Waffle Iron Griddle


Completely restored. A huge 4 x 4 waffle iron and griddle. Makes for a family and can be used to make pancakes or waffles. Eggs too if you want. Its a big one and heavy duty. Made by Noblitt-Sparks in Indiana under the ARVIN trade name. Its built like a tank. All the asbestos wiring is replaced and all surfaces super cleaned. The plates are aluminum without any coating (I will tell you how to make them non stick). The Thermostat is re-set and its like brand new only better without asbestos. 12 x 12 inches four waffles 4 1/2 x 4 1/2. Simple latch mechanism to pull the plates to wash or use the griddle. The griddle plates stay on. The plates have a drip channel and the waffle plate has a drip edge but the base also is set up so excess batter does not get on your table top.
With 1350 watts it really has the power. Dial control: off to Dark and everything in between. It ranges from 150 to 500 degrees F. I will show you in the instructions where the most common settings are for waffles. Original cloth cord in excellent condition. I will give you directions and all you need to use this vintage appliance. It was made in the late 40's (1949 was the first one) and into late 50s. Weighs 11 pounds by itself.
NOTE: The shipping will be calculated with USPS however, since it is heavy I may use Fedex or UPS if cheaper and refund you any overage.

All items come with complete use and care instructions.
All items come with cords.
All cords are either new or old style that have been tested and refurbished.

What are materials

Waffle grids are cast aluminum.
Toasters are metal
Coffee pots vary and I always tell you the materials.

How will I keep it working and will it work?

Everything I sell is refurbished and in like new working order.
If something goes wrong, I will fix it so its like a lifetime (mine LOL) warranty.

Is it safe?

It will be as safe or safer than the original manufacturer when it was made. Many times it is safer since I remove and replace asbestos wiring and unsafe cords. Note: There are some items I no longer refurbish because they cannot be made safe. I check every item for stray voltage and many times it is too high so that unit is scrapped.

What does Restored and Rebuilt Mean?

It means its been re-wired with modern high heat resistant wire, thermostats re-set, gunk, grease, stains have been removed. Restored to original factory specifications. Cords and wiring safe. All components checked for safety. Everything back to very good to mint condition nothing less.
