I see that Peter Corby has died aged 97, inventor of the Corby Trouser press.
Interesting obituary in the DT, including a photo of one being used to cook Plaice!

From the linked article:
Over the years the trouser press, with its association with travelling salesmen, became something of a target of satirists.

Indeed. I'd add that a paean to the late great Ken Wood-Mixer is surely long overdue? ;)
