The front cover begins at the top with the words "Cook book" followed by a drawn illustration of a woman wearing a white apron over a long black dress carrying a roasted turkey on a tray. Behind her, there is a cut out of a heart with a stove in it. Below her, the phrase "The Malleable Range made in South Bend ranks first in the heart of the home" is written in black lettering with hearts on each side. The back cover is plain. The inside pages start off with a title page that includes a stamp stating "Robert W. Campbell Hudson, Mich." The following pages entail directions for setting up and operating The Malleable Range along with various recipes for such foods as omelets, puddings and cakes. Throughout the inside pages, there are different drawn illustrations of the Malleable Range. For example, on page 20 there are different drawings of flues and chimneys and paragraphs underneath stating which one goes to which range.
