A woman knows the kitchen best. True that. Since there was no one to invent such a useful kitchen ware, Josephine Cochrane made built one herself. She kept track of the long hours that her servants spent just on washing the dishes, hence realized the need for a dishwasher. She first measured the dishes, built wire compartments, each specially designed for plates, cups or saucers. She then placed these compartments inside a wheel that lay flat in the copper boiler. A motor turned the wheel while hot soapy water jet up from the bottom of the boiler and rained down on the dishes. Thus came in the first ever dishwasher. Thanks to Josephine.
