Title text at the top of the cover reads Book Of The Lightning Freezer, then at the bottom of the cover, With Recipes By Mrs. S.T. Rorer, Published By North Bros. Mfg. Co., Philadelphia. All text and the drawing are bordered by an orange and black line. The back cover features an orange border around promotional text for the Lightning Freezer, plus a black and white drawing of a maid carrying a tray with six dessert servings. Inside pages describe and promote the Lightning Freezer (with blue and white photographs illustrating the process for making ice cream), the Gem Freezer, the Blizzard Freezer, and the American Twin Freezer.
