    Doesn’t Ikea sell kitchen cabinetry much like that “all in one” kitchen? I know on-demand water heaters and the like are also easily available – not a bad prediction at all.

    A can opener that opens a #10 can in 2 seconds? Holy Moly, Tim Allen would love that thing.

    The kitchen design was really quite a revolutionary idea at that time. The average kitchen in the early 1920s might or might not have running water, depending on where they lived. An icebox was still the most common form of refrigeration, and a wood or coal stove wasn’t unusual even at that time. Cabinets were still something new in a kitchen. It was commonplace to have some open shelves, and if the area under the sink was closed, it was just as likely to be a curtain as a door.
