Mechanical and Electrical Devices for the Housewife (Mar, 1931)
Mechanical and Electrical Devices for the Housewife
Water is boiled in eight minutes and an oven heated in six minutes with this new electric stove, which delivers three degrees of heat. The heating element nestles in a bowl shaped reflector which directs all of the heat towards the utensil.
Equipped with motor and power head, to which are fitted devices for mixing dough, chopping meat, etc., this table is a complete kitchen workshop in itself. It is finished in white enamel.
Messiness is avoided by use of this stand for a food and meat grinder. It is placed on the kitchen table.
This combination dining table and kitchen cabinet is especially suitable for crowded apartments. A number of handy drawers and shelves are provided. The table, which has a porcelain top, slides back into the cabinet when not in use.
A hand operated machine for home dry cleaning is shown at the right. The corrugated inner bottom of the machine retards the garment’s movement, so that the fluid is thrown over and through the fabric.
The last word in home entertainment is represented in this “Filmophone radio,” a combination radio, phonograph, and movie projector with talkie equipment. The records are played in synchronism with the film. The cabinet is shown at left.
Using the attachment shown in the insert, an electric iron can be converted into a hot plate. The new electric stove, shown above, uses two 150-watt lights in top and bottom to cook, broil, steam, bake, fry or roast any kind of food. Insulated walls retain the heat from the lamps. The stove comes furnished with a wide variety of utensils—enough to cook a meal for ten or twelve persons.
