"No matter how much you've enjoyed cooking in the past, there's even
greater pleasure awaiting you now that you have a new Westinghouse
'Speed Electric Range. It's easier to use and gives you better results than
any range you ever used. And it's easy to clean, too.

No longer need you stand at your range and stir foods as they cook. Nor
will you ever need to worry about baking-you'll get perfect results every
time in your Westinghouse Oven.

There's new accuracy in surface cooking, too. There are marked heats
on the control of each surface unit. But you can "fine-tune" any heat you
want between those settings, so that your favorite dishes come out exactly
as you want them.

This book tells you how to use your Westinghouse Range to get perfect
results. So, please read these instructions carefully, and follow them
faithfully."
