Reviews

If you want to understand your kitchen, this is the book for you. Packed with fabulous period images and memorable detail, this is the story of how the center of the American home came to look the way it does today--and what that can tell us about gender, capitalism, and social norms.--Nicola Twilley, writer and co-host of the Gastropod podcast
Modern kitchens are the midcentury era in miniature: an embrace of the new, equal parts invention and consumption. Sarah Archer tells this story with warmth and wit, accompanied by beautifully chosen images throughout.--Glenn Adamson, author of Fewer Better Things: The Hidden Wisdom of Objects
A refreshing retro-kitchen history--Florence Fabricant, The New York Times
