th it iui has been adopted in tlie Pandora" - it an actualworLmefeaturt
and noi a nitre talking point
rresh air is drawn from the outside through iinall vents into the oven
and is quickly heated and disseminated while, the odors and cookniE
itimcs escape thiouyh small vents into the smoke flue" and up the chimney
Result is that expensive, juicy roasts retain their rich natural flavors
and aie entirely free from cooking odors and taints to which the palate is
*o 'tnsittv e Puddings, bread etc when baked are always h[»ht fresh
and fiee from taint
In the production of the "Pandora" ranee >ou have all that scientific

finelj equipped plant combined, can produce
