Post-Thanksgiving thought: Why 1963 was a very good year

This represents another re-post from two years ago. Since I re-recognized the genius of Dorcas Reilly (Hey, is that actually even a green bean casserole sitting in this oven?), it only seems fair to re-mention my favorite Thanksgiving-related invention:

1963: Innovations in the kitchen, while even more helpful, begin to grow more complex. The P-7 self-cleaning oven is introduced. In developing the oven, which uses a pyrolytic system to remove food soil, GE engineers are granted some 100 patents.

While it took about another two decades for a self-cleaning oven to enter any of the houses in which we have lived, what a great invention GE brought to life.

Last night I pressed a button, and this morning I woke up to find all traces of Thanksgiving had vanished from my oven.
