The mid-century was a time when convenience was introduced to the consumer. By 1959, frozen food and packaged processed foods purchased at a super market was becoming mainstream. Electric refrigerators and freezers were now standard for mid-century households. The article gave the reader confidence that frozen food was a reasonable alternative to fresh.
