Atomic Kitchen
Gadgets and Inventions for Yesterday's Cook
by Brian Alexander
 
Conscious cooks in the 1950s equipped their drawers and cupboards with the latest and greatest specialty 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 1950s. Accompanied by illustrations of 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. .
