BEFORE YOU START
cleaning comes first

You may want to give your new

foodkeeper a more thorough cleaning to remove any "in transit" dirt.

To clean:
• Leave the Cold-Control in "OFF" position.
• Wash the interior with a solution of warm water and baking soda - see "Cleaning and Care" Page 18 for detailed instructions.
• Learn to remove and replace each part as you clean -following the directions given in this book.

Then start the refrigerator:
• Plug cord into electric outlet.
• Turn Cold-Control to #1 position.
• Fill ice cube trays and place in freezer.

about the cold control

This one control regulates the temperatures in both the Refrigerator and Freezer sections.

• Under normal use conditions, #1 position provides proper temperature throughout cabinet without resetting. However, you can adjust Cold-Control for -your foodkeeping needs:

Colder- turn to #2 or #3 (coldest position)

Warmer- turn to letter "A" or "B" (warmest position)

To turn refrigerator off-turn Cold-Control to "OFF." To leave for an extended period: disconnect electric cord, remove ice trays and food and leave door ajar for air circulation. To leave for short time: remove perishables, but do not remove opened containers of condiments (catsup, etc.) which might spoil at room temperature. Set Cold-Control to "A" or "B" unless storing frozen food.

If you move - to much higher or lower altitude, call your Frigidaire Dealer to adjust the Cold-Control for proper operation.

FRESH FOOD STORAGE TIPS

• Remove bulky store bags and wrappings and refrigerate food as soon as possible.
• No need to pre-cool warm foods; place in suitable containers and store in Refrigerator.

MEATS, POULTRY, FISH
• Pre-packaged cold cuts keep best in original wrappings.
• Wrap fish and smoked meats closely in moisture-vapor-proof material to prevent transfer of odors.
• Store pre-packaged fresh meats in original wrappings if using within 1 or 2 days.

To Store Fresh Meats in

Meat Tender
• Remove outer store wrappings.
• Separate various meats with inner leaf store-wrapping, waxed paper or aluminum foil.

To Store Fresh Meats on

Refrigerator Shelves
• Remove outer store-wrappings; place on plate. Cover cut surface loosely with waxed paper.

Length of Storage

The kind and cut of meat, and most

important, its original condition, all affect storage time.

• Large cuts, such as roasts, can be kept longer than thin steaks or chops. And, both grinding and tenderizing shorten life.
• Plan to use highly perishable items such as fish, liver, and ground meats like hamburger and fresh sausage within 1 or 2 days.
• Bacon, other smoked meats, franks and cold cuts may be stored for a longer period.
• If keeping fresh meats and poultry for more than a few days, wrap in freezer paper and store in Freezer. See Page 13.

LEFTOVERS
• Leftovers may be stored for several days in Refrigerator. For longer storage, freeze in Freezer.
• Always cover leftover dishes.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
• Trim and discard undesirable portions of vegetables. Wash in cold water, drain and place in Hydrator.
• As salad greens are used, re-moisten remaining portions and drain before storing again.
• Wash fresh fruit and tomatoes; wipe dry before storing. If more space is needed for vegetables, place fruit on tray in Refrigerator.
• Berries may be stored "as is" in the Refrigerator if purchased in plastic wire baskets. If they come in wooden containers, spread out on a plate for better circulation.

DAIRY PRODUCTS

Milk -wipe container carefully and refrigerate at once. Store on top shelf in Refrigerator or on door shelf.

Eggs - do not wash until ready to use to retain flavor; store with large end up in Sliding Egg Drawers in FP-142-59 or on door (FP-124-59).

Butter -store in Butter Compartment on door. Use special heat control (FP-142-59) to keep butter as spreadable as you wish. Serving Dish holds 1/4 lb* stick for table use.

Cheese -natural or process -should be wrapped tightly with foil, Saran or cellophane to retain flavor. Press wrapping closely to eliminate air pockets. Store in Cheese Compartment or in Refrigerator.

EXTRA-TALL BOTTLES

FP-142-59

Top door shelf has a special opening for inserting neck of extra-tall bottle when storing in shelf below.

The Frost-Proof Freezer

The Freezer Section in your new Frigidaire Foodkeeper is more than just a freezing compartment -it's zero-zone cold and fully frost-proof! Frost never accumulates so you'll never have to defrost or scrape it away. Frozen foods will never have to warm up, even slightly or be moved out of the freezer. They'll stay frozen round the clock -retain flavor and appearance for months.

In Model FP-124-59

The stay-down Freezer Door doubles as a loading shelf

Fully insulated with special Frigidaire foam insulation to keep zero-zone cold inside; warm air out! Pulls down, stays down to serve as a handy loading and sorting shelf. Lets you slide filled ice trays right into the freezer without spilling!

Huge Roll-to-You Freezer Basket

FROZEN FOOD STORAGE

food freezing tips

Because the Food Freezer section in your new Frigidaire Foodkeeper maintains constant zero-zone temperatures, you will find it ideal for storing a family supply of commercially packaged frozen foods. And you can also use your Freezer to freeze foods at home. Just keep these tips in mind:

• Always select foods of good quality - freezing will retain quality but never improve it.
• Speed food to the freezer.
• Cool all cooked foods quickly.
• Top basket may be removed for freezing and storing larger turkeys and roasts (FP-142-59).
• Keep foods frozen until used.

don't store too long!

Many foods, properly packaged, will keep from six months to a year. For maximum use, keep foods coming in and out of the freezer, using first-frozen foods first. While storage times vary according to type of food, here are some suggestions -

Up to 1 Year: Beef, lamb, venison, rabbit, game birds, most fruits and vegetables.

4 to 6 Months: Poultry, veal, pork and lean fish.

6 Weeks to 3 Months: Most cooked foods such as chili, chicken a la king, ground beef, "fatty" fish, smoked ham, commercial frozen foods.

4 to 6 Weeks: Leftovers, ground fresh pork, sausage (seasoned, not smoked), ice cream.

DON'T refreeze foods!

Once it has thawed completely, food should not be refrozen. In an emergency, foods may be refrozen - if food is still firm and ice crystals remain. However, these foods may lose quality and flavor. Use them as soon as possible for they will not keep as long as if fresh frozen. Always relabel packages indicating that they have been refrozen.


Page 15:

FROZEN FOOD STORAGE

how to freeze meats

Careful Wrapping is important! Loosely wrapped packages are not airtight; flavor and appearance are not retained; surface of meat becomes dry and fat may turn rancid. Look at the difference in these two packages!

IMPROPERLY WRAPPED

This roast has lost its moisture- surface is dry; quality and flavor are below standard.

CORRECTLY WRAPPED

This roast has kept all of its original moisture-quality and flavor are same as day it was frozen!

HOW TO WRAP

• Select a good quality freezer wrap of moisture-vapor-proof material especially made for freezing. Ordinary waxed or kraft papers are not recommended.
• Allow plenty of paper so that edges can be folded over several times.
• Place food in center of paper. Bring two horizontal ends together as shown, and fold over and over until tight against surface of meat.
• Fold in so that ends are tightly sealed as shown, then tie with string or seal with tape. If using cellophane, ends may be sealed

with warm iron.

• Depending on wrapping used, a "stockinette" or cheesecloth bag may be used to hold wrapping close to meat.
• When using other types of containers, such as waxed cartons, freezer jars or plastic dishes, follow manufacturer's instructions.

how to freeze poultry

Stuff poultry-at home-just be-fo re roasting-This prevents danger of harmful bacterial contamination, loss of quality, and flat, soggy dressing.

To Prepare Roasters

• Clean thoroughly, ready for oven. Remove excess fat. Cut larger fowl in half, then wrap separately.
• Wrap giblets and neck separately. Tie wings and legs close to body. Cover ends of drumsticks with extra thickness of freezer paper to prevent puncturing of outer wrappings.
• Use pliable plastic bag or freezer wrapping material that can be pressed tightly against the bird. Heat-seal, twist ends or secure with freezer tape.

Note: Since poultry is especially subject to drying out in the freezer (freezer burn), try coating entire surface of fowl with unsalted vegetable shortening.

To Prepare Broilers

• With poultry shears, remove back bone and neck bone.
• Pull out breast bone.
• Cut in half.
• Place double piece of freezer paper between halves. Wrap tightly in freezer paper.

To Prepare Fryers and

Stewing Chickens

• Cut or disjoint poultry.
• Select pieces to be frozen.
• Pack pieces tightly in freezer container or wrap in freezer wrap, making packages as square as possible.

LABEL CAREFULLY AND FREEZE IMMEDIATELY

Commercially Frozen Poultry

• Commercially frozen stuffed poultry is available in many areas. Stuffing poultry is not recommended for home freezing, but is acceptable on commercial scale.
• Keep frozen until used-roast without thawing, following instructions on package.

PREPARING FROZEN POULTRY FOR SERVING

• Do not refreeze poultry after it has been thawed; plan to cook within 24 hours.
• Frozen poultry may be thawed before cooking or cooked from frozen state. Allow extra time if cooked from frozen state.
• Chickens to be fried or broiled are more tender if thawed. Also, seasoned crumbs, batter or flour coatings will adhere better and there is less spattering of fat and more even browning.
• Stewing chickens require very little, if any, extra time when cooked while frozen.

how to freeze cooked meats, poultry

STEWS, MEAT PIES

• Remove meat from bones and cut into 1- to P/^-inch pieces.
• Cool and package immediately in glass freezer jars or moisture-vapor-proof packages.
• Add gravy or broth to cover -if desired.

ROASTS

• Remove most fat, slice meat, arrange in layers separated by double thickness of cellophane; wrap well or place in freezer container, cover with gravy or broth.
• Poultry may be frozen after first serving, by wrapping "as is;" or remove meat and pack in freezer containers. Cover with broth or gravy if desired. Pack dressing separately.

LEFTOVERS

Cool quickly and place in glass freezing jars or cartons.

PRECOOKED AND PREPARED FOODS

• Some convenience foods that freeze well for short time storage include soups, stews, spaghetti sauce, baked beans, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken.

For Freezing

• Do not overcook.
• Cool quickly the portions to be frozen by setting pan in ice water. Package in freezer containers and freeze immediately.

how to freeze baked goods, pastries

FRUIT PIES

We suggest freezing pies before baking because of slightly higher quality retention, and because it takes about as long to thaw a frozen baked pie as to bake one. Use metal, glass, foil or metal rimmed paper pie plates. Wrap closely in approved freezer paper to exclude air.

CAKES

• Butter, chocolate, spice, fruit and angel cakes can be baked before freezing. Icing before freezing is optional.
• Place on flat plate or cardboard, wrap closely with approved freezer paper to exclude air, then freeze.
• To serve, let thaw at room temperature without removing wrapper to prevent beads of moisture collecting on frozen cake.

COOKIES

Unbaked: Shape dough into rolls, wrap well and freeze. To bake, slice without thawing and bake.

Baked: Cool thoroughly, stack in freezer cartons, seal and freeze. To serve, let thaw in cartons at room temperature.

BREAD AND ROLLS

Bake, cool on racks. Wrap securely in freezer paper.

how to freeze vegetables

• Do not freeze salad vegetables- lettuce, cabbage, celery, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and radishes- which are served crisp and raw.
• Vegetables to be frozen should be at the peak of maturity, and of highest quality.
• Wash thoroughly, remove unsuitable portions.
• Blanching by using steam or boiling water is essential to retard the natural growing process and retain flavor.
• Have water boiling when vegetable is added for either type of blanching and start timing at once.
• Blanch only 1 lb. at a time, then cool thoroughly, drain, and pack in glass freezer jars, plastic containers, or cartons with liners (press air from package before closing), seal and speed to the freezer.

SPECIAL INFORMATION rtS£%Z*

the Meter-Miser

(COMPRESSOR)

It is sealed in steel and oiled for life. You never have to touch it. For economy's sake -install refrigerator away from extreme cold or heat.

about operation

You'll notice that the Meter-Miser doesn't run all the time. When temperature inside cabinet rises to a certain point, compressor operates to lower temperature, then shuts olT automatically. The efficient refrigeration system is designed to "cycle" less often than some refrigerators. This means Meter-Miser may run longer and also remain off for a longer time. Certain slight sounds are normal -such as slight bubbling sound caused by liquid refrigerant after compressor has shut off; and hum of motor as compressor starts to run. Also, when new refrigerator is first plugged in, a chattering noise may be heard. This is entirely normal and will disappear when freezer cools down and system becomes equalized.

interior lights

To remove lamps at top back of Frost-Proof Models, grasp white shield at sides; lift up and forward. Replace with 40-watt round bulbs. To replace shield, raise over pegs and drop into place. To replace tubular lamps at sides, grasp lamp shield at sides and slide toward front of refrigerator, then pull out at back.

Note: On Model FP-142-59, replace light at top front of freezer with 25-watt tubular bulb.

keeping the refrigerator level

Your refrigerator has 2 adjustable leveling glides (one at each front corner) to assure level installation when the floor is uneven.

If refrigerator should be moved, it can easily be releveled if necessary without calling a serviceman, by simply turning the two leveling glides with an open-end wrench.

safety-seal doors

Seal tight but just can't lock! Double nylon rollers pull door tightly shut for air-tight seal. Can be opened easily from inside by pressing against it anywhere on latch side.

Note: When closing door, push firmly shut to assure tight seal.

STOP

BEFORE YOU CALL THE SERVICE MAN!

1. Check to see if electric cord is plugged in.

2. Check whether a house fuse has blown.

3. Has the Cold-Control accidentally been turned to "OFF"?

4. Has the refrigerator (or freezer door) been kept open more than usual?

5. Is the refrigerator overcrowded with foods, preventing good air circulation?

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.

"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."
