This Week in Business History

Many innovations extend beyond one invention or improvement. They happen thanks to combined changes in attitude, economics, technology, and society.

In this week’s episode of This Week in Business History we see this dynamic play out in home kitchens – starting with the patenting of the first electric stove by William S. Hadaway on June 30, 1896.

Right in the midst of the second industrial revolution, this invention can be considered alongside the electrification of American homes, a desire for cleanliness and food safety, and standardization of everything from manufacturing to recipe measurements.

Listen to these stories and then marvel at the many innovations sitting in your own home kitchen!
