Stephen Poplawski was the first in 1922 to put a spinning blade at the bottom of a container and thus invent the blender. He used his appliance to make soda fountain drinks.

The 'Waring Blender' (Originally spelled 'Blendor') was patented in 1937. It was one of the earliest commercially successful blenders. The most unusual thing about it is it is named after orchestra leader Fred Waring. Frederick Osius worked on improving inventor Poplawski's blender, and went to Waring for financial backing. Waring backed its development, in part so he could puree raw vegetables for the ulcer diet his doctors prescribed. Waring also delighted in most new inventions.

The Waring Blender (originally called the Miracle Mixer) debuted in 1937 and sold for $29.75. By 1954 one million Waring Blendors had been sold.

The Waring Blender was used by Dr. Jonas Salk in his laboratory while he was working on the Salk Polio Vaccine.

An industrial food processor was invented by Pierre Verdon in 1971. His  Le Magi-Mix was a compact household version of his own earlier restaurant-scaled Robot-Coupe. Two years later, Carl Sontheimer, an American engineer and inventor developed the household Cuisinart food processor, which was a refined version of Pierre Verdon’s industrial blender.
