Gadgets and Inventions for Yesterday's CookBook - 2004
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.
