Hotpoint, circa 1959:

Or, perhaps all you need is a nice, mobile blue Frigidaire dishwasher? Yes, we can do that, too. (From 1960)
GE ranges were used at the Pillsbury Bake-Off, 1959:

I believe I now feel the need to do a follow-up to this post featuring appliances in other colors.
I'll see what I can do.
