The range, which bakes a cake- in six minutes in a cold oven, has been field tested for more than a year and is available to consumers in several of the nation's major markets." The new oven will bake a potato in 5 minutes—almost ten times faster than a conventional oven. Bacon can be broiled on a paper plate with a napkin crumpled underneath to absorb the grease. The electronic oven offers a new flexibility in cooking home meals and can be used for many foods formerly cooked on surface units. According to Mrs. Pauline Treisch, Tappan's h o m e economics director, a 5-pound rolled rib roast can be cooked in 30 minutes. The roast would have required nearly three hours in a conventional oven. Cooking is simplified on tin: electronic range because temperature controls have been eliminated. All the housewife need to do is select high or low speed and pet the timer. Unlike conventional timers, the electronic range timer is calibrated in seconds for the first throe minutes. The range automatically shuts off when cooking is completed. Housewives, who participated in the field tests, found that the electronic ranee has Vnanv advantages in addition to reducing cooking time from one-half to one-tenth. Less dishes are used because food can be cooked ;n the lasses or china dish in which it is served. The dish remains cool, so food docs not stick to the dish. Thus, hand-disluvash- hg is easier and all dishes can be washed in an automatic dishwasher without scraping. The- oven walls remain cool and can be cleaned simply by wiping with a damp cloth. Users say one of the outstanding advantages of the range is the fact thai it eliminates heat in the kitchen. The microwave unit which cooks the food was developed in conjunction with Raytheon Mfg. company, a pioneer in the electronics field and manufacturer of the first commercial electronic range. The build - in model weighs only 150 pounds and is about one-eighth the size and weight of the first experimental electronic range. The oven is equip- pcl with a high-speed electric unit which can be used selectively for browning meats and top casserole dishes. Only controls on the oven are individual high and low speed setting and individual timers for both the microwave unit and browning unit. The oven interior is 18 inches wide, 14 inches .deep, and 11 inches high. The oven is aluminum-lined and the exterior is finished in Lusterloy brushed chrome. The oven door has a wide , frame of Lusterloy and look-in 1 section of perforated metal. The door has a special pull mtch that can be released from either side. I The electronic unit will not operate unless the door is latcin-d. (Thus, it is impossible for tin 1 user to come in contact with the 'microwaves that cook the food. Neither the oven nor the dish becomes hot during the cooking process, because the oven reflects the microwaves, and the li-lish transmits them. Only the food absorbs .them and thereby becomes heated. I The electronic unit uses the tvoe of e n e r z v which Do-It-Yourself Decorative Aids ELECTRICAl CONTRACTOR Residential and Commercial Your basement or attic may reveal many items that can be used sis decorative aids to bring a dash of color to the home and lend spice and variety to drab interiors. According to Lambert Wise of the Studio of Color Design, Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company, the trend today is toward use of the painted accent piece, which is usually a table, chest, or chairs. But the imaginative home decorator is even putting family heirlooms back into service. With_a fresh coat of paint in accent colors that harmonize with room furnishings, these items will provide a smart decorative touch.

Because the electronic unit in the range transmits microwaves, Ihe Federal Communications Commission has assigned the unit a wave length of 2400 megacycles for cooking. The range will not interfere with radio or TV reception. The electronic range operates on 220-volt electric current from the same type outlet with the same type cable as an electric range. It requires no special in- ••:Uif!ation or plumbing. Users have found the cost of operation is less than that of a conventional electric range. The electronic range will retail at approximately $1,200. Beechcr Lane Appliacnes is the Algona Tappjan dealer.

JOHNSON BUILDING CONTRACTORS ALBERT HAGG Specialist in Interior Decorating 35 Years Experience PHONE 1172-J YELLOW LEADS IN KITCHEN COLOR PARADE The big news today is color in the kitchen', says the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association, with yellow now in first place and green second in the color parade. Manufacturers are meeting the consumer demand for color by producing kitchen appliances and other equipment in the most popular decorator shades. This makes it easy for anyone to work.out a coordinated pattern, as you can buy gas ranges, re- , frigerators, kitchen cabinets and even sinks in matching colors. For those who prefer white gas ranges with color accents,' GAMA points out that some manufacturers are featuring removable colored trimmings in order to keep kitchen color schemes flexible during the life of the range. But, even if you are not in the market for new appliances and equipment, you can achieve the "new look" by using paint as your main miracle-worker. For example, to create a candy pink kitchen, start by painting the walls and ceiling a pinkish gray, with the ceiling a few shades lighter than the walls. Next, paint all the woodwork and cabinets your favorite shade of pink. Finally, choose floor covering and counter tops the same shade of gray as the ceiling. Against this background your white gas range, refrigerator and sink will provide exactly the contrast you need to highlight the pink in your "dream" kitchen. Note . . . Although kitchens now come in more than a hundred shades, many at no extra cost, white is still the favorite sold . . . by a margin of 10 to 1. Every gas range manufacturer- provides specifications and detailed instructions for safe installation of his cooking units, vented or unvented, to comply with all local building codes. Manufacturers also are meeting the demand for high-color kitchens by producing cooking units, as: well as one-piece ranees, in, the most-wanted shades other than white, and also .white ones with colored trimmines for more conservative buyers. This means that builders can find units to harmonize with practically any color scheme that is reouested. Homemakers themselves are the best "boosters" of eye-level oven and broiler cooking, which eliminates the need for stooping over to peer at food or to clean ' spill-overs. (la.) Upper Des Maine.
