In the recipe for Mayonnaise Dressing, Fannie Farmer says to use “A silver fork, wire whisk, small wooden spoon, or Dover Egg-beater may be used as preferred. If one has a Keystone Egg-beater, dressing may be made very quickly by its use.” The Dover eggbeater was the first rotary eggbeater sold in the US. The Keystone Egg and Cream Beater was more like a small churn, with beaters in a glass container with a lid. I can see how it would beat mayonnaise very quickly
