When a second hand of the indicatorslowly moving, reaches the hand at 2, an automatic switchcuts off the current and the cooking goes on as in the oldfireless cooker. I place a six-pound roast of beef in theoven, prepared for cooking. I set the indicator of that ovendoor at 6, and when the second hand reaches 6, an auto-matic switch cuts off that current and the cooking goes on. Now here is the miracle! Here is where the clock doesits work! You set the alarm at 4, just as you set anyalarm, and when four oclock comes the alarm is so ar-ranged that it opens the switches and both compartmentsstart cooking, and whether you are on time or whether youare late, the food is not injured by waiting, as all knowwho have ever used a fireless cooker. To sum up: this greatforce, electricity, is being harnessed so that every house-wife may drive it with ease and comfort—if she can onlyhave the chance, and when that comes may come economy.
