The inside pages are split into six different sections including How To Assemble Stove, How To Fill Glass Reservoir, How To Light and Extinguish, How To Different Secure Flame Heights, How To Clean Wicks, and How and When To Rewick Stove. All of these sections entail step-by-step directions plus illustrations.

Under question number fifteen, there is a seal of approval from the Good Housekeeping Institute. The back end page is made up of two promotions.
