Vintage Recipe Box 400

Vintage Recipe Box 400

I love when I find large recipe boxes such as this one, Vintage Recipe Box 400.

We THINK we have over 700 from just this one box and are currently processing them to add to our site.

Each recipe is published below as they are added… it’s going to be a huge list!!!

Vintage Recipe Box 400 comes to us from Chalfont, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

It is a large white metal box that measures 12” D x 5.5” W x 4” H with a metal tag that says “American Home Menu Maker.” According to my research, the box was sold in multiple colors for $1 and included 212 “basic recipes” for an additional $.50. (See the image below that is an order form to purchase the box.)

At this time we do not know anything about the history of the box.

We do show that this box came to us with another box but at this time we are not sure if they were owned by the same person or the eBay seller grouped them together.
