TV dinners have been around for decades. These days when we want a nice TV dinner we just toss it in the microwave and it is ready and minutes. If you stuck these trays in the oven the results would not be pretty. These trays are from the time when TV dinners were cooked in the oven. The microwavable ones are pretty flimsy, but these tins are still in great shape and very sturdy, even after many years. You could still use them today if you were so inclined.

What Allee has to say about this:
I absolutely love that you collect this kind of stuff. Your fast food collection is so great.

I lust for these trays. They were so much a part of my growing up I can’t even tell you. Just looking at these I can smell the tiny fried chicken breast, soggy but wonderful corn, pasty but wonderful mashed potatoes with a plop of gravy and that teeny little apple pie. The roast beef dinner was pretty thrilling as well.
