The front panel has a black and white drawing of a maid standing between stove and table. She holds a cake layer in her left hand and part of the cake pan in her right hand. The back panel has Favorite cake spoon, black and white drawing of the spoon, and the text: The best and strongest spoon made. Made of the best steel and heavily retinned after the holes are punched. The shank passes entirely through the handle and is riveted at the end, so the hand cannot come loose. The holes permit the batter to pass through, making stirring easier and mixing more complete. The front end page had the trademark of the company. The back end page has a description of the combination dipper. It is a catalog and recipe booklet for the Buffalo Steam Cereal Cooker, Buffalo Steam Egg Poacher, Security Kettle, Corrugated Mincing Knives, Self-sealing Pie Tins, the Gilmore Grater, Wonder Egg Beater and Cream Whip, the Shaker Shifter, "Savory" Seamless Roaster, Combination Dipper, and the Graduated Measuring Cup. There are black and white drawings of the equipment in use. The panels are no longer attached.
