There was a time when customized meat forks and devices with specialized slicing action were the marks of a well-equipped kitchen. Conscious cooks in the 1950s equipped their drawers and cupboards with the latest and greatest doohickies, thingamajigs, and must-have products. From the Saucy Stovetop Butter Melter to the Chop-o-Matic, if there was a vegetable to chop or meat to be carved, there was a device to make it better and easier Atomic Kitchen presents a gallery of gadgets, features, and cooking devices that appeared, and in some cases, disappeared during the creative cooking of the 1950s. Accompanied by vibrant, original packaging and vintage advertisements, you'll marvel at the ingenuity of the minds that brought you the Weenie Wheel, Bean-X Bean Slicer, Cookie Gun, and much more.

Oh my god, I love this book. I may be the only person who watches Tom and Jerry for the 1950s-style backgrounds. Being born in 1979, the “good old days” fascinate me, especially the fact that a “Deluxe Model Deep Freeze” with 12 ½ cubic feet of storage was $424.50 in 1953. With inflation that’s over $3,700 today! This is great to reminisce, or to show younger generations what the American Dream looked like.
