The Wonderful Water Seal
The final fortification against loss of precious
cooking heat must be at the top of the fireless
eookstove. 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."
