A little dishwasher history
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:40:26 AM »
Was wondering just how long dishwasher have been around so I did a little searching and found this.

The first reports of a mechanical dishwashing device are of an 1830 patent in the United States by Joel Houghton for a hand-powered good device. This device was made of wood and was cranked by hand while water sprayed onto the dishes.
