Prepare summer meals
in cool comfort!
An electric range sends its heat into your food
. . . does not make your kitchen a "bake oven" I
The oven of an electric range even
when used for several hours raises your
kitchen temperature only about 1.
This is because rock wool insulation
keeps the heat inside the oven where
it belongs. The surface units direct '
their heat into utensils, too.
Because the temperature control
does your oven watching, you don't
have to flood your kitchen with heat
every few minutes peeking and turn
ing your food. You just open the oven
door once when the clock says your
food has been in the correct length of
time and remove your dinner.
Thus when you have an electric
range, your kitchen stays comfortable.
Why continue to swelter in the heat
of some old-fashioned cooking method ?
Electric ranges are priced so that you
can afford them. You'll find the terms
convenient. Start enjoying real cook
ing comfort. Visit an electric range
dealer or our nearest office today.
Enjoy a refreshing bath
A hot bath is the most cooling bath you can
take. And when you have an automatic elec
tric water heater, you can bathe any time
you desire for there's plenty of hot water
on tap. Your house doesn't become over
heated through keeping up a range or fur
nace fire. You don't have to remember to
light or turn off your heater. Your hot water
supply is as automatic as your cold water
supply. Ask us to tell you more about elec
tric hot water service . . . and about our low
water heating rate.
