Invention: A blender or mixer is an appliance that allows you to beat or mix soft foods, fluff and emulsify mixtures and sauces, and whip egg whites to stiff peaks.
An electric motor (usually a universal motor) turns a shaft, this shaft is connected to a series of gears, which are connected to metal rods. When turning, these cause the movement of the mixture of ingredients.
They exist in three different versions: Rod blenders have a vertical rod with which food can be beaten or mixed, glass blenders have a glass or container and usually have the blades that make the shake at the bottom of the bowls. themselves and finally the kneading mixers which are similar to the rod only that they are specially designed to knead.1
The first mixer was invented by Herbert Johnston in 1908. 2 It was not hand-held like most of today’s lighter models, but rather a stationary appliance that stood on a table or countertop. It was marketed by the North American company Hobart Electric Manufacturing Company, which sought to offer restaurants a tabletop version of the already existing large industrial mixers.
