Do You Cook The New Waterless Way?


The blue, orange and green front panel of this tri-fold leaflet has a color drawing of a woman in an apron using the Mirro Vapo-Seal Cooker to cook a full meal - meat, potatoes, vegetables and dessert. The title is at the bottom in white. The back panel has a beige inset with MIRRO, The Finest Aluminum and a complete price list for the Vapo-Seal line (3-Qt. Covered Pan - $4.00). At the bottom is dealer "Hogie & Lee, Hayti, S. Dak." At the very bottom outside the inset is "The Best Cooks Use Aluminum" in white. Inside is a promotion for the advantages to the Vapo-Seal waterless cooking: for health(with a drawing of a woman golfing), to save time (with a drawing of a woman visiting with guests) and to save money (with a drawing of a woman at a bank teller window). When fully unfolded, the two left panels have a color drawing of a platter of food beside the Vapo-Seal Cooker followed by Delicious Recipes for Roast Beef Dinner, Steamed Chocolate Pudding, Meat Balls and Stuffed Pork Chops. The two right panels has 9 reasons "Why MIRRO Vapo-SEal Utensils Lead" with illustrations of Mirro products on the right and along the bottom of all four panels.
