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. No longer will you have to guess or peek, to see
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.

Thumbnail Image of Download 1958-1959 Westinghouse Built-in Cooktop and Oven Owners Manual
Here are the owners manuals to the 1958 and 1959 line of Westinghouse Built-in Ranges (Cooktops and Ovens).

Models include:
Cooktops: PJ-66, PJ-68,
Built-in Ovens: OL-17, OL24, OLR-17, OLR-24

With your Westinghouse Built-in Range you'll
enjoy a new degree of cooking convenience.
You'll be delighted at the way your favorite
recipes turn out-and you'll be equally pleased
with the wonderful way your new oven and
surface units take the work out of cooking.

There are two styles of Westinghouse built-in
ovens, as well as three different surface cooking
units. This booklet illustrates all styles
and gives detailed instructions on how to use
and care for them.

So, we suggest that you read this book carefully
and familiarize yourself with the features
of your oven and your surface unit. Then
you'll know how to make the best use of them.

As you may notice in the illustrations, the
main difference in Westinghouse built-in ovens
is the size. Westinghouse surface cooking platforms
were designed for versatility-one platform
has four Corox surface units, while each
of the others has two surface units and separate
remote control panel.

But, regardless of which oven or which style
surface units you are using, you'll get best
results every time, if you follow the directions
given for their use. And you can be certain
they'll serve you a long, long time, if you care
for them as suggested in this booklet.

Thumbnail Image of Download 1962 Westinghouse Continental and Medallion Range Owners Manual
Here is the complete Owner's Manual and Use/Care guide to Westinghouse Continental and Medallion Ranges.

Models include: KGB30 and KHB30.

Full operating instructions, cleaning, care and tested recipes included.

This pdf is a two pack as it contains both manuals in one file.

Dear Mrs. Homemaker:

With your new Continental Range, you're sure to find
new pleasure and convenience in your meal preparation.
The Continental has been designed to make cooking
simple and clean-up fast and easy.

Among the Continental features you’re sure to enjoy are
the location of the oven, at eye and arm level; the position
of the Control Panel, at the side and out of the heat
zone; the Pantry shelf, the retractable platform
and the fact that you can select the exact
cooking heat you want on the surface units.

This booklet has been prepared to tell you in detail
about those features and many more that make the
Continental such a fine electric range. So, to make
sure that you know all about these features,
and use them to the very best advantage,
please read this book carefully before you use your
Continental Range the first time and refer to it often,
until you’re entirely familiar with every phase
of its operation. Then you'll be sure
of perfect results every time.

Congratulations on the addition of the new Westinghouse Electric
Range to your kitchen. You will find it one of the most responsive
and efficient electric servants you have ever owned ... You will
love the speed, accuracy and ease of use.

You'll find that many cooking operations that once took a lot of
time can now be done automatically. No longer will you have to
stand at the range and stir foods while they cook ... or lift lids
to see whether water has boiled away. No longer will you have to
guess when food is done. The accurate, automatic controls of
your Westinghouse Electric Range will give you the same fine
results, day in and day out, with a minimum of effort on your part.
Probably you have a fine reputation for your skill in baking. The
Miracle-Sealed Oven of your Westinghouse Range will delight
you ... it will give you perfect results every time ... without worry
on your part.

Perhaps, too, you have several pet recipes for foods cooked on
the Range surface . . . foods done exactly to the degree of doneness
that you prefer. Because your Westinghouse Range surface
units will deliver any degree of heat you select, you can cook
these dishes to perfection every time.

To get the results your Westinghouse is capable of giving, it is
important that you read this book carefully. In it you will find
detailed instructions on the care and use of your range. If you
follow these instructions carefully, your range will' give you many
years of trouble free service and you and your range will become
wonderful cooking partners.

Thumbnail Image of Download How to Repair Appliances
Here is a wonderful book full of pictures and information of vintage washing machines and other vintage 1950's major and small appliances.

This is the most complete book on appliance repair ever prepared for the home handyman. Automatic Washers, Dryers, Refrigerators, Vacuum Cleaners, Fans, Mixers, Toasters as well as special chapters are devoted to the proper use and repair of freezers, air conditioners, rotary ironers, waffle irons, grills and heating units.

Before plunging into the repair of specific items, the author introduces the reader to the sources of power—electricity-—then covers the manner in which this power is transported to the home in a chapter on House Wiring. Safety measures, too, are outlined and the reader is cautioned on how to protect himself and his family both in the repair and use of these handy—but sometimes dangerous—electric assistants.
Since the most used home appliance is the modern washing machine, a greater coverage is offered, with special field reports by a group of well known writers and photographers. Profusely illustrated with photos, diagrams and charts, the section covers trouble shooting for all makes of washers— with specific information on:
Bendix
Whirlpool-Kenmore
Westinghouse
General Electric
Maytag
Frigidaire
Speed Queen
Norge
ABC-O-Matic
Easy


Finally—The Ways and Means of Appliance Repair—and a complete coverage on Electric Motors used in Home Appliances— provides the harassed home handyman with the kind of money-saving information he needs to keep his push-button paradise in perfect (and economical) running order.
