Jospehine Cochrane revolutionised the world of cooking in 1886 when she patented an invention that would, in time, become the dishwasher as we know it today. Then, in 1919, with the invention of the first household eggbeater by Herbert Johnson, the brand KitchenAid was born. It’s more than just eggbeaters and dishwashers today, though. The KitchenAid range is made up of small appliances like juicers and coffee machines, larger appliances like microwaves and hobs, cookware and handy kitchen accessories.
