1956 N.O.S. General Electric "Partio" Kitchen / BBQ Cart


An unbelievable find, this 1956 "Partio" cart has never been used! This virtually brand new beauty has been covered up and forgotten until now, and even has its' original vinyl cover, users manual, and factory warranty (now expired). The portable kitchen features two burners, a griddle, and oven. The opposite side is a charcoal barbecue, complete with electric rotisseries. Two solid maple cutting boards lift up for extra surface, and remove for cleaning. The oven door is also removable for cleaning. The oven and stove top both feature lighting, as well. The original two toned vinyl umbrella is also in remarkable condition, and has a tilting mechanism. The unit has an inline transformer, and plugs into a standard 110 volt wall plug. What a find....what a beauty!
