Westinghouse Electric Corporation is celebrating their 130th anniversary as a leading innovator of products and technologies which enrich peoples lives making them better and more prosperous. Founded by George Westinghouse, the company was established under the name Westinghouse Electric in 1886. George Westinghouse, entrepreneur, engineer and pioneer was born in Central Bridge, New York in 1846. Some of his most notable achievements include the invention of the air brake, a railroad braking system using compressed air and development of a complete electrical and compressed air signal system. In 1911 he received the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) Edison Medal ‘For meritorious achievement in connection with the development of the alternating current system.’

Westinghouse has had a hand in some of the most significant innovations in technology from clean and safe energy solutions to smart appliances in today’s households. Some of their most important contributions throughout the years include the all-electric kitchen range, electric clothes dryer, all-weather airport approach lighting, computer-controlled teletype network, “instant-on” television, to name a few. Today, the Westinghouse brand can be found on numerous products and appliances from ovens and cooktops to small kitchen appliances and cookware. From non-stick electric fry pans and enameled cast iron pots to toasters, kettles, slow cookers, woks, air fryers and arguably the best frying pan on the market, Westinghouse is synonymous with quality and affordable products to make lives better.

Perhaps one of Westinghouse’s most popular product’s today is the Opti-Fry Air Oven, a convenient kitchen appliance designed for grilling, toasting, baking and roasting food. The air fryer utilises a rapid air circulation system for fast cooking times, requires little to no oil and has variable temperature control of up to 200°C, making it a healthier cooking option. It also comes with a silicone trivet, convenient drip tray and steel mini-rack. Westinghouse Small Appliances remains at the forefront of the development of new technologies to transform the human experience in the modern day. Over more than a century, Westinghouse products sold all over the globe stand testament to the philosophy of their founding father George Westinghouse.
