They find Gas the best kitchen fuel because of its flexibility
speed, cleanliness, economy, accurate controllability and other
values. They find Gas unsurpassed in turning out superb meals
(with heavy duty Gas ranges, roasting ovens, bake ovens, broilers,
deep fat fryers, toasters, steam tables, steam jacketed kettles,
griddles, coffee urns, water heaters ... for any purpose that heat
is needed in food preparation and kitchen sanitation. LL*
If you are not now enjoying the advantages of Gas in
your own kitchen, stop in and talk over with your dealer
or us the possibility of obtaining new Gas equipment as
it becomes available. When you see the new fully auto
matic gas ranges and hot water heaters, and the silent
Servel refrigerators you’ll understand why “the trend is
to GAS.”
