Does anyone know when the platter was first invented and started being "widely" used?

The first platters I ever saw in operation in the USA were in the early 1970's. Might have been Potts. I recall Kinoton platters were available in Europe in the 1960's, and they (W. Burth) received an Academy Award for the invention.

platters are not to put the turkey on... they are the turkeys in my opinion.

I do not know but I'll bet my Eprad was the model for which all things to NOT have on your platter were gleaned from!
