For all kinds ot electric cookery in the home. Does everything an oven will do.
Roasts and bakes brown—stews—boils—steams and fricassees, enough food for an
average family meal. Browns foods perfectly, which steam cookers, pressure cook
ers and so-called tireless cookers will not do. Cooks largely by stored heat and uses
less current than an electric iron. Has two heats—“high” and “low.” ‘High heat
rapidly brings the oven cooker to temperature desired and then, because of its effee-

cooker many times oven Operates from any electrical outlet. Equipped with two
separate clamp cover containers. Food prepared in the oven-cooker at home can be
served hot from it at picnics or other outings. ,
This OVEN-COOKER is the same thing as the “Economy Cooker” on
many Electric Ranges except that it is larger. Many who purchased
ranges WITHOUT this feature will want one. Ask that housewife whose
