Now you can do away with the hot job of summer
cooking yet never do without a hot meal. Incred
ible? It's true. Science now gives you a new miracle
of electricity "Absent Cooking".
You place your entire meal from meat to des
sertin a cold oven, set the time and temperature
controls, and leave the house if you wish. Return
just before dinner and your meal is ready. Even if
your electric range doesn't have a time control, its
temperature control will free you from all oven
watching while your meal is cooking.
Another nFtonishing fact is that kitchen tempera
ture is raised only about 1 during the cooking of
an entire meal. Electric cooking is cool cooking!
Visit any dealer's or our nearest office today and
see the wonderful new electric ranges on display.
