You'll like the TIME-SAVING, FOOD-SAVING, and FUEL-SAVING that these
modern gas ranges, built especially for volumn cooking, will bring to the fraternity and
sorority kitchen. You'll like the flexibility - the capacity - of these sturdy, compact
ranges, for you'll find they can adequately take care of the cooking for the big crowd
on a Homecoming Day or just as efficiently handle the cooking for the few around the
house during a vacation week. As have many others, you'll discover that the kitchen
keeps much cooler - the thoroughly insulated ovens see to tfxat. And baking or roasting
is done without guesswork by the time and temperature method with the accurate oven
heat controls. Fine broiling and griddle facilities are ready for instant use. The large
top burners give just the right heat for any type of top cooking - instantly.
