The dumb waiter has evolved with one local man’s invention.
Patrick Schmitt has his patent pending for “My Personal Waiter,” a motorized lowering device for kitchen cabinets.
The “waiter” works like an elevator for your dishes or canned foods. With flip of a switch, the shelves are lowered down toward the kitchen counter within the reach of most people.
The idea came to him in 2001 as a better alternative to the step stools his mother-in-law used to reach her cabinet’s high shelves.
“I was worried that she could fall,” he said.
