Intro Tone Reflection

In both of the articles, “Why The U.S. Chills Its Eggs And Most Of The World Doesn’t” and “Introduction” to the kitchen technology, both of the authors had interesting and quirky hooks. While the “Why The U.S. Chills Its Eggs And Most Of The World Doesn’t” has a slightly more informal voice, it still grabs the attention of the reader and sparks enough interest to persuade the reader to keep reading. The slightly comical anecdote personalizes the reader with the material covered and makes the article relatable. At the same time, the author uses a quirky vernacular that again furthers the reader’s interest in the piece.

In “Introduction” immediately the author forces the reader to question the norms in which they think about kitchen technology and critically think of the origins. Also aspects that are usually overlooked, such as design and history, are featured, giving the reader a new angle to view the technologies. Highlighting modes of thought about the technology and how it influences its uses forces the reader to  really think about the technology is an aspect that I too tried to incorporate into my essay and really enjoy reading within literary pieces. Both of the pieces as well included laid-back but still formal tones, which I think is crucial in order to keep the reader engaged in your writing so it doesn’t seem pretentious.
