DIRECTIONS FOR BAKING WITH COAL
On all ranges equipped with Thermostat oven control, disregard indications of the thermometer in oven door panel when baking with gas.
On all ranges equipped with Oven Temperature Control, it should be borne in mind that the control regulates the oven gas burner only-not the coal fire. When using gas only for baking, the oven temperatures may, be automatically coil rolled at any temperature by means of setting the Bengal Thermostat Dial to the temperature desired. Always preheat the oven to the desired temperature. For the proper use of this Thermostat, follow the special instructions as given in the Bengal Instruction, Book (included with, each range so equipped.)
We recommend the use of Chestnut Coal of a. good grade for best results. Finer coal may be used if the chimney draft is adequate.
A smoke pipe damper is recommended on all installations due to variations in draft.
The range must be connected to the flue with a smoke pipe of no less than six-inch diameter. It is very important that the opening in the chimney for the smoke pipe is not less than 6-inch diameter.
When it is desired to raise the oven temperature quickly with gas when there is a coal fire maintained, do not change settings of dampers, all that is necessary is to convert the "coal' oven to "gas" oven as shown by illustrations. Use Open Ring Grids ONLY When Operating Top Burners.
The general design of the firebox: and flues in this range make possible a quick, intense fire depending upon the quality of the fuel and the strength of the chimney draft.
It should be borne in mind, however, that an unregulated fire may do permanent injury to the range. Excessive temperatures will affect the linings of the fi~9 box, warp (or even. melt) the castings adjoining· the hottest part of the fire, and blister the porcelain finish. Heating the top of your range to red heat should serve as a danger signal, and the draft immediately reduced.
CARE OF GUN METAL TOP
The cast tops of all our Dual and Modern Gas Coal Ranges are furnished in Ebony Finish. The finish is obtained by first polishing the entire surface after which it is heated in a furnace to 1,200 degrees F and finally coated with a special preparation which gives the top of the range an ebony (sometimes called gun metal) color. This finish is as durable as the iron itself if properly cared for. The best way of doing this is to first remove all food particles which may have spattered on the top during the cooking operation. Then lightly wax the entire top while, still' warm, in the same way that you would wax the face of your clothes iron.
