Did you know the first reliable dishwasher, which was handpowered, was invented in 1887 by Josephine Cochrane with help from George Butters?
It was unveiled in 1893 and was reportedly invented because her servants were chipping her fine china.
It wasn't until 1924 when William Howard Livens invented the first dishwasher, in England may we add, which was small enough and suitable for domestic use. Many of his designs are still seen in dishwashers today such as a front door for loading, and a rotating sprayer.
It was during the postwar boom of the 1950's that dishwashers started to become successful after they were marketed with standardised sizes and shapes to fit underneath the kitchen countertop.
