Thumbnail Image of Download 1918 Westinghouse Range Owners Manual
This is the oldest owners manual for any major appliance we have found up to this point. Westinghouse very first range was in 1914, so this is very early in the line. I can only imagine what housewives had to cook on before this range. This is a fascinating look at early range history. Even the writing style is completely different than what you'd see today by far!

Most women would like to cook if it did not require standing
over a hot stove. Planning a meal is not hard and mixing
various ingredients into the promise of delicious dainties or
preparing a roast for the oven is rather fun . But to be held
in the kitchen or even in the house during the long hours of
watchfulness is a different matter. And it is right here that
the Westinghouse electric range steps in and lifts the burden.

When the food has been prepared it may be trusted to
this silent servant with perfect confidence. There is no possibility
of instructions being forgotten or misunderstood . At
a given time, (the time decided upon,) the clock will turn on
the current and the meal will begin to cook. Again when just
the correct temperature has been reached in the oven, the thermostat
will turn the current off again and when madam enters
the kitchen after an afternoon of leisure or pleasure the meal
is ready to serve.

She herself is prepared to enjoy the meal equally as well
as any member of the family , because she has not had to think
about it since early morning.

Because the Westinghouse range reduces the labors of cooking
to the minimum, requiring no watching nor constant regulation
of heat, because it produces better food , and because
it is more economical, it will be in the kitchen of every modern .
progressive woman who is anxious to keep her family happy
and in good health. and yet does not wish to become a fixture
in the kitchen with its consequent limitations.

Thumbnail Image of Download 1959 Frigidaire Refrigerator-Freezer Tech-Talk Service Manual
Here is the comprehensive service manual to all 1959 Frigidaire Refrigerators. This is the year Frigidaire introduced fully frost-free models.

Models included:
SA-9-59, SS-9-59, S-9-59, D-11-59, D-13-59, FD-1 04-59, FI-123-59, FI-122-59, CP-144-59, FP-124-59 and FP-142-59.

"THE WONDERFUL 1959 FRIGIDAIRE REFRIGERATORS

Now with the advent of the wonderful new Frigidaire Frost-Proof Refrigerator-Freezer, a woman's life becomes easier than ever. For the first time she will have no frost to contend with. We hope you all have inspected a Frost-Proof that has been operating during the hot summer months and have seen how free of frost the packages and ice cube trays remain. You have only to see other refrigerators that depend upon push buttons for defrosting- to appreciate how much the absence of any frost means to the homemaker.

In the Frost-Proof:

• All of her frozen packages stay clean and free of frost.
• Labels on the frozen food packages are always clear and legible.
• All space is usable- none taken up by the frost.
• Freezer baskets always roll in and out easily-no tugging to release frosted guides.
• Ice cubes remain free of frost whether in ice trays or in the Ice Server.
• Ice Cream stays free of frost on the surface of the un-used portion- yes, even if Junior leaves the lid ajar.
• Counter-tops and tables stay dry and clean of frost marks or puddles of melted ice formerly left from grids or ice trays or frosty packages.

But the advantage the homemaker appreciates most is the freedom from the messy job of defrosting! Remember that some of the women you talk to may never have experienced the messy job of defrosting a true food freezer-refrigerator. But every woman will have at least some experience with some kind of defrosting."

There's new accuracy in surface cooking, too. There are marked heats

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."
