The eponymous founder of the world-renowned Waring corporation, Fred Waring, worked as a popular bandleader, musician and radio-television personality from the 1930s through the 1950s. Fred helped finance the patent application for the "Miracle Mixer" and introduced this device to the American pubic when he appeared at the National Restaurant Show in 1938. The "Miracle Mixer" was the first electric blender ever in recorded history and we know that device as the "Waring Blendor" (the distinctive "o" was used to spell Blender" from its first appearance).
