whether foods are done. Nor will you ever need to worry
about baking-you'll get perfect results every time in your
Westinghouse Oven.

There's a new accuracy in surface cooking, too. Of course,
there are marked heats on the control of each surface unit.
But you have your choice of a~y heat you want between those
settings-literally, 1001 heats, so that your favorite dishes
come out exactly as you want them.

The purpose of this book is to tell you how to use your
Westinghouse Range to get the perfect results it can give you.
So, please read these instructions carefully, and follow them
faithfully. Then you'll be assured of years of wonderful service
and more pleasure in cooking than you've ever known
before.
