Pretzel Bending Machine Solves Problem (Nov, 1936)

Pretzel Bending Machine Solves Problem

Accomplishing what once was considered as impossible for a machine, a new pretzel bender turns out 900 completely twisted pretzels per minute. It more than equals the work of fifteen expert pretzel-bending girls. The machine is an odd assembly of wheels, endless belts, air hose and electric motors, yet it handles pretzels with far more skill and speed than the best worker. Circle, top, machine at work. Center, pretzels ready for cooking. Bottom, expert worker bending pretzels by hand .

    When I was 10 my mom, my sister, and I went to Pennsylvania to see the centennial re-enactment of the Battle of Gettysburg and went to a pretzel factory in Pottstown.
    While we being shown a row of these spewing out thousands per minute one of them went haywire and started throwing dough all over the factory floor.
    For a 10 y.o. boy it was the most entertaining and hilarious part of the tour.
