Kitchenware

Man earlier used simple kitchenware like skewers, mortars, pots and rollers. Before they had to make them themselves, buy them from a handy neighbour or the local blacksmith. Birch twigs or other prunings were for example used to make a whisk. Kitchen appliances broke through when we had electricity in the home. Work in the kitchen became more efficient and rational — a new market emerged, where women were the main target group.

Kitchenware reflects the times we live in. Today we need a latte whisk as well as a lemon squeezer and perhaps even a pizza cutter or a strawberry clipper. Perhaps we also need an electric potato peeler and a parsley grinder — there are also those who need an egg separator.
