I cook Potatoes
and Onions
in the same pan
on my Electric Range!
And the.delicate potato doesn’t absorb either the flavor or the odor of its pan
mate, the tangy onion. Cooked together in a half cup of water, each holds its
own individual deliciousness , . . saves cleaning a second pan, uses half the cur
rent. That's economy. What’s more, your high speed, low-upkeep automatic
range minds your cooking for you ... needs no watching, keeps your kitchen cool
and clean. Never forget. Electricity is Today’s Best Buy ... for every dollar our
customers pay us for residential service in Washington today, they get almost ^
times as much electricity as they did 20 years ago. See these new ranges at the
Electric Institute Display in the Pepco Lobby—buy them at your favorite store.
