Electric or gas-powered appliances also changed the look of the twentieth-century kitchen, and today the old appliances are wanted by those restoring early twentieth-century houses. Electric refrigerators were made by the 1920s by Kelvinator, General Electric, and General Motors (Frigidaire). They were heavy, with wooden cases and nickel hinges, and were too expensive for the average homeowner. By the mid 1920s, refrigerators came down in price and had a new look created by an exterior of porcelain over steel.
