Oldest food-related infomercial?

I found this link on a site for Ernie Kovacs fans (Ernie's not in it but it seems to be the inspiration for his Deadline to Dinner sketch). Also brings to mind the Honeymooners "Can it core a apple?" No date, but guess it's about 1950. Enjoy.

    1. I wonder when the faboo Ginzu knives commercial came out........
      Those things will shred your food faster than you can say shred. They don't give a clean cut (impossible because of the quasi-serrated edge) and though they may be sharp enough to cut through a can!! (which I feel the need to do daily, of course) they SUCK.
