A. F. Dormeyer

A. F. Dormeyer developed the electric Household Beater in 1927. It was designed so that the motor could be easily detached from the bracket that held the beater blades, a forerunner of detachable beaters. It was originally manufactured by the MacLeod Manufacturing company, which later changed its name to the A. F. Dormeyer Manufacturing Company.

The company continued into the 1960s producing beaters, deep fat fryers, and coffee percolators, including the magnificently named Automatic Electric Hurri-Hot Electri-Cup
