I just saw some crap on The History Channel: What the Victorians Gave Us, where the idiot historian/presenter claimed that King Camp Gillette was the first to give us a “disposable consumer product” with his razor blade in 1895. Well, besides the fact that Gillette was an AMERICAN, I say it was Peter Durand, with his canned food process (the can being disposable) in 1810, not Gillette.

But I could be (and likely am) wrong. If you have an earlier example of a disposable consumer product – please post up.
