Where does the term dumbwaiter come from?
The term ‘dumbwaiter’ originated when the elevator was first used in large homes with kitchens in basements or ‘servants’ quarters. These servants use the elevator to take the food to the upstairs dining room and go down again on the way from the kitchen to the dining room, thus used to isolate the noise and smell of food from customers. The origins of the term are simply that this elevator is a way of having your own silent waiter, not seen and heard. You can review our article on the history of Dumbwaiter elevator.
