Thumbnail Image of Download Crescent Dishwashers and Glasswashers
This is a super rare catalog. You can clearly see the very pre-historic history of KitchenAid spray arm dishwashers in this catalog. While the machines in the catalog are meant for commercial use such as in restaurants and other institutions the resemblance to early home dishwashing is amazing. Check out the material that the dish racks are made out of, simply amazing!!! I highly recommend this catalog for anyone who is interested in the history of mechanical dishwashing.
