• Short Summary

    Household appliances are tested for performance at the Good Housekeeping Institute.

  • Description

    London.

    Various shots of workers at the Good Housekeeping Institute testing different home appliances for performance.

    First a woman cooks Swiss Chard (looks like cabbage greens) in three different saucepans. The cooked Chard is put onto three separate plates and tasted by another woman. We then see a woman testing a gas grill by putting three slices of white bread in the grill pan, then examining it for even browning.

    A man puts a saucepan containing a thermometer on a gas stove. A woman stains teacloths by pouring a mixture of coffee, vinegar, tea and blackcurrant juice onto them. She then puts the cloths in different washing machines to test their performance.

    Notes on file.
