Strictly Experimental is this combination freezer-electronic range which General Electric demonstrated lost month. Housewife simply makes menu selection by pushing up to six of the 14 selector keys at top of unit.

G-E officials emphasize that unit is nothing more than logical development of existing appliances and "does no take the place of a good cook." Instead, the XP C-1 allows housewife to prepare meals in advance and frees her from work while meal is being cooked.
