Automatic dishwashers have been on the consumer market since 1930, but -as of 1963- are still considered a luxury appliance. Nonetheless, the Sears appliance department has several models for sale, including this portable Kenmore unit.


While only a few homemaker's possess an automatic dishwasher, many in 1963 use a wringer-type clothes washer. Automatic machines, introduced in 1937, are becoming more commonplace every day. In the meantime, this Kenmore Visi-Matic machine is a hot seller.
