1. Q. Why Is It Easy to Keep Electric Ranges Clean?
A. First, electricity is the cleanest of all fuels. Second, one piece ovens eliminate cracks and provide round corners—work surfaces with coved backs and cooking units that are easily removed for cleaning. Porcelain in itself is one of the easiest of all surfaces to clean.
Q. Do the “Definite” Surface Heats Provided by Most Electric Ranges, Have Any Advantages Over the “Infinite” Number of Surface Heats Provided by Ranges Using Other Fuels?
A. Yes. This is important because it eliminates “guesswork” in cooking and enables you to use even unfamiliar recipes with confidence and ease. The heat obtained at each switch setting will be repeated exactly each time you use it.
1. Q. How Long Does It Take to Preheat the Electric Oven for Baking?
A. From seven to fifteen minutes is usually required for preheating to a temperature of 350°F. (In one make of Range, two units provide correct baking heat and fast preheating to 400°F in less than seven minutes.)
2. Q. How Can the User Determine When the Oven Has Reached the Temperature She Desires for Baking or Roasting?
A. This is easily determined by the oven signal light which goes out when the oven reaches the desired temperature.
Q. Are All Electric Ranges Equipped With a Warming Drawer?
A. No. It is usually a regular feature on deluxe models and can be installed as an accessory on some other models.
Q. Are the Temperatures in the Warming Drawer Harmful to China?
A. No. The temperature is sufficient for warming china but not high enough to cause any harm.
Q. Do I Have to Learn to Cook All Over Again to Cook with Electricity?
A. Of course not! Just use your same favorite recipes (and many others) with confidence and ease—the only difference will be that your electric range will give you greater simplicity and accuracy, and add greater joy to cooking because it is cleaner, cooler and automatic.
Q. Is the Deep Well Cooker More Practical Than a Fourth Surface Unit?
A. Yes, because the deep well cooker will perform virtually any cooking operation possible on a surface unit, plus baking, and do many of them better and more economically.
Q. What Types of Food Are Best Prepared in the Deep Well Cooker?
A. Pot roasts, soups, stews and any foods requiring long cooking times.
