Just when I thought I’d seen it all, I’ll come across an interesting gadget or a version of something common that I have never seen. I am fascinated by trivia that is kitchen related. I thought I would share a few of my most recently learned facts about the history of kitchenalia. All of these great facts can be found in the book, “Spiffy Kitchen Collectibles”, Krause Publications, 2003, by Brian Alexander.

...that according to a 1940’s Life Magazine Article a gadget is a device for doing something that nobody knew needed doing until a gadget was invented to do it.

... the Edward Katzinger Company, otherwise known as Ekco, started in the 1880”s with it’s founder making nothing but tin pans for commercial bakeries.

...in the 1950’s Ekco created large merchandising racks and shelving units for stores to prominently display their gadgets and housewares.

...The first Foley product from the Foley Manufacturing Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota put into production in 1933 was a food mill which is still in production today.

...in the 1920’s the Washburn Company, otherwise known as Androck, adopted colorful painted wood handles on their kitchenware.

...beaters fall into three categories: fixed, mechanical, or rotary. Fixed beaters are guided by hand motion and include simple wire and coiled wire designs. Mecanical beaters involve pushing up and down on the top to create a revolving motion. rotary beaters involve a geared whell and crank mechanism where rotating blades create the mixing action.

...cake and mold pans having a figural shape or including the design of a well known, licensed character usually have increased collector value.

...the earliest cookie cutters were fashioned from small scraps of tin or metal by hand.

...The first product of the Rival Manufacturing Company of Kansas City, Missouri was the Juice-O-Mat. It had an early distinction of being available in five different colors and despite the economy of 1932 was widely accepted by consumers.

...manual juicers, a once frequently seen kitchen gadget, were made obsolete with the introduction of frozen and canned juice in the 1950’s.

...in the1860’s, a $10,000 challenge to find a substitute for ivory billiard balls led John Hyatt on a path of experimentation resulting in the discovery of celluloid.

...a more durable hard plastic was discovered by Leo Baekeland in 1907 and was quickly named Bakelite.
