Josephine Cochrane invented and patented the first practical automatic dishwasher and it won an award at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago! Too expensive for all but the richest, at first it was used mostly in restaurants and hotels. She was awarded her patent in 1886. Celebrate the dishwasher, this marvelous invention, and the woman who created it!
This 3″ x 2″ thin, flexible, magnet looks great on a fridge or a dishwasher!
