Today we well take you back in time to 1944.Encyclopedia Brittanica produced this film explaining some of the fundamentals of how appliances worked during that time. It's interesting that so much of the basic processes have not changed a lot. As you can see in the film, the appliances themselves look quite different today. The only machine that hasn't changed significantly is the Kithenaid-style countertop mixing bowl and the toasters. When was the last time you found yourself replacing the bushes in an appliance motor? Well, there is the rotor and stator on the new designs by Whirlpool, but other than that? We hope you enjoy this look into our appliance heritage.
