It is right here that the Domestic Science is immensely superior. A "water seal" at the top is the only thing that will hold the heat, and our fireless cookstores are the only ones on the market with "water seal" covers. The "water seal" is effected in a U-shaped groove where the cover fits into the cooking compartment. Moisture collects and forms a perfect seal against the es cape of heat. This exclusive feature is fully pro tected by patents. Insist upon a fireless eookstove with the wonderful "water seal."
