Last week we celebrated Thanksgiving. Unless we had someone else prepare the food, we certainly were highly dependent on both a stove and a refrigerator to cook and store the makings of our feasts. We can be thankful for the work of African American John Standard: “[His] improvements to kitchen appliances eventually led to more innovations in both refrigerator and stove designs that would change the way people around the world stored and cooked their food.” (From African American Registry)
