Between the time of freestanding or wall-hung cabinets and the arrival of built-ins came the Hoosier cabinet, a creative piece invented by an Indiana man named J. S. McQuinn. The Hoosier cabinet is a large, freestanding unit with bins for dry ingredients like flour and sugar, a tin (later porcelain) work surface, and drawers and closed shelves for pots, pans, bowls, dishes, and utensils.
