The production facilities of the manufacturer of these cooking utensils are great, but the needs of the Government for certain essential war materials must still be supplied. As a result, such quantities of PRESTO COOKERS as we are re- ceivmg now are, and will be, far too few tb supply the demand for some time to come ... In fairness to all, requests for PRESTO COOKERS will be tilled in the order in which they are received.
