Did you ever wonder where the phrase ‘white goods’ came from? The team at Affordable Appliance Repairs in Worthing wanted to know so we carried out a little research.The company Hotpoint are manufacturers, as you know, of kitchen appliances such as dishwashers, fridges, freezers, washing machines, ovens and hobs etc.
The company started out life as an electrical manufacturer in the USA back in the early 1900’s, becoming a household name by the 1950’s. It produced a completely white range of appliances and that is where we got the term ‘white goods’ from due to there dominance of the market at the time.
Another interesting fact we found out was that the name Hotpoint comes from one of their first inventions which was an electric iron with a ‘hot point’ rather than being hot in the centre!
