After shopping around and looking at various units, the Johnsons chose these Caloric units shown in the picture above from Rapid Thermogas Co. in Algona. Mrs Johnson .is seen here preparing lo serve her children who are seated on the opposite side of the counter. The children, left to right, are Ruth, 6, Debbie, 4, Bruce, 3, and Roger 7. Mrs Johnson likes the Caloric burners particularly because of the three speeds which enable her to keep food warm for a length of time. Ray, being a contractor and builder, often is late in coming home for a meal, ani this warming feature helps a lot. Probably the most enjoyable feature, says Mrs Johnson, is the broiler. Because it is about waist high, the broiler is used constantly and this makes cooking so much easier. The oven with its automatic pilot light is an added feature of convenience which Mrs Johnson didn't have on her previous gas rangi. Both units are in satin chrome finish. "Since moving into our new house last April, we have learned a whole new way of life as far as the kitchen is concerned," says Mrs Johnson, who thinks the kitchen facilities should come first when planning to build or remodel. MORE AND MORE PEOPLE ARE USING CALORIC GAS BUILT-INS - AND HERE'S WHY! * There is no worry about broiling with oven door open. * You have the added convenience of eye-lever visibility of controls which can be either manual or automatic. * There is automatic oven control. * Automatic lighting of all burners — no matches. * Door panels of bright or satin metal finish — or porcelain enamel in white, black three pastel colors. * Signal light to indicate when oven reaches a desired tempera- rure. * Non-jarring, balanced action oven door. * Heavy, thick Fiberglass insulation. Whether You're Remodeling, Building New or Trading Ranges There Is a Caloric Gas Built-in For Your Kitchen Prices Are No Higher Than A Regular Gas Range! LET US SHOW YOU HOW EASY IT IS TO BUY CALORIC GAS COOKING UNITS I Rapid Thermogas Co. •I trir Phone 16 — Algona So.
