I was watching Storage Wars-Texas tonight. Bubba found an old kraut cutter in a unit. He took it to an expert, (a burger shop cook), (can't call the guy a chef). He told Bubba that is was worth $150.00.
I have two in my shop priced at $20 each. They don't sell at that because there are all kinds of them on auction that go for under $10.
Sure makes for good TV to put those big prices on everything.

What do you think ?

Sure makes for good TV! ^_^ I have seen a few unrealistic prices on that show, but it is entertaining and somewhat informative. I think they pull "experts" like that out of the woodwork just for the entertainment value.

Hi, Bernie
I love watching American Pickers or other shows that are similar. I wish they would offer me some prices like that. I could become a whole lot less attached to my collections lol. I have been looking for a Shawnee corn bowl.
What is a decent price for one? I bid on these little Shawnee cat shakers and won them for a Christmas present.

I stopped at the Owensboro Antique Mall yesterday and they did not have a single piece of McCoy :(

If the Kraut Kutters are the mandoline style flat ones...I think I bought both of mine for under $7. I love them, and use them for all veggies, because they're stronger than the modern plastic/metal combos. Can't adjust the blades, so everything comes out the same size, but I still love them.

I was watching Storage Wars or Pickers and they found an old metal meat grinder, the kind you screwed to the counter top edge. They said yeah - 45 BUCKS! We Cant sell them for 10 up here. I hear what your saying.

We used the old meat grinders when I was a kid in Ohio. Usually we used them for nuts though, when we needed tons of them ground up for Patica ( the sweet dough spiral with nut filling). Once food processors were invented, they kind of lost their function.
