WHAT 1800 FAMILIES KNOW
ABOUT ELECTRIC COOKING
H EY will tell you it is a new kind of luxury
— one that doesn’t cost more to enjoy.
O f course you have always appreciated the ad
vantages of c(K»king by electricity. You know that
it means no more fuel to carry; no more ashes to
lug. You know that electricity is the ideal cook
ing heat;econom ical because it is turned on when
you need it — not before; turned off when you’ re
through— not later.
But perhaps you would like to know exactly what
it cost? — in dollars and cents. T h e 1800 satisfied
families w ho now use electric ranges served with
electricity by this com pany would gladly show
you their hills, if they could.
W e have made an average of these hills, so that
we may give you the facts. T h e average cost of
electric lights alone in all homes served by this
company in Oregon is $2.20 a month. T h e aver
age cost of their electric lights and electric cook
ing together is $5.62 a month.
Also, you have more m on ey If
you let it talk— by go in g to the
place where you ca a save more o f
it on your repair kill.
For the difference, could you buy ordinary fuel
for cooking? Ami if you could, would you want
to? W henever you decide to investigate this ques
tion of electric cooking closely, your nearest deal
er will tell you many interesting things. And he
is prepared to install your new electric range at
once, on convenient terms.
