Thumbnail Image of Download Consumer Bulletin Magazine - January 1972
Consumer Bulletin was a highly respected consumer product information magazine from the 1930's onward. It was the main competitor to Consumer Reports from the 1930's through the 1970's.

Articles on Products and Ratings in this issue include:
  • Automatic Dishwashers

  • Full discussion and tests of 13 portable and undercounter dishwashers are conducted.

  • Weather Instruments

  • Small Automobiles

  • Color Film


Please note this issue was lent to our library in a bound volume which could not be taken apart for scanning. An overhead book scanner was used, which produces very good quality scans, albeit with some slight page curling at the margins. The documents are clear and nice to read and the pictures are very good as well, however it's quite not up to the same image quality standard as a flatbed scanner.

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.
