Before Blendtec, there was the Universal Food Chopper.

(click ad, via) Ad illustration magic from the year 1890. Yep, just crank the handle and start grinding up the pigs and cows and turkeys and chickens and lambs and lobsters and running carrots and coconuts with legs and what the hell is that green thing lower right? Previous disgusting vintage food ads: Speef? • Stouffer's turns spinach into a puke brick • Which of these Spam ads is more mouth-watering? • And, the two most disgusting recipe ads in history (one two).

Methinks the date is a tad off - the Chopper says it wasn't patented until 1897....
