Gopnik's Daily Pic: Braun's kitchen icon
By Blake Gopnik
The latest feed from my morning musings about art and objects at www.blakegopnik.com.
Daily Pic: The "Multipurpose Kitchen Machine" designed by Braun in 1957, set up in blender mode. This Transformer can also become a mixer, a meat grinder and a coffee and spice mill. I know, because I still use the one my mother owned for decades before me - and still get pleasure from it every time I take it out. How many small appliances can you say that about? How many could last this long?
The machine is on display in a show at MoMA called "Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen" that I noted in today's Food section of the Post.
