AH the Principles Involved in tbe Per
feet Broiling of Meats,
With the ' Greatest Conveniences and
Advantages of Practical Use, and Do
ing its Work with a Rapiditj more
than Double that of any other
Broiler ! '
It affords to the rich and poor alike the FIRST

troublesome, juice-evaporating, and dyspepsia
producing broiler of the past : from the deadly
foe to human health, the FRYING-PAN ; and
from - - - -
Meat cooking A bominationsof all degrees
It renders broiling, heretofore so vexations, the
Quickest and Easiest of all modes of Cooking,
and meats broiled by it
More Palatable and Nutritions
than by any other mode of rooking them, because
it prevents the loss of nutriment by evaporation
or otherwise. It sets on top of the stove or range
over one or tne openings : requires no preparation
of fire ; no Coke or Charcoal ; no pounding of
steak : renders tough meat tender by its action
does away with all smoke and smell of grease;
broils equally well over Coal or Wood ; answers
for all sited stove or ranee openings and is
equally good for ;
Beefsteak, Chicken, Chops, Ham, risk
ana uysvers. .
It broils steak, over an average fire, in Seven
to Eight minutes, and over a very hot fire, within
Five minutes. Other meats in proportion, and
retains all the Juices and Flavor, which no other
broiler aoes. ;:. .:
