WHITEHEAD 




NEW KITCHEN BEAUTY AND DELIGHT 



IT'S NICE to dream dreams. It's fun to imagine 
changes that would make your kitchen lovelier to 
look at, and easier to work in. But why be satisfied 
with hopes? Why remain a castle builder? Today — 
right now — you can have a Whitehead Kitchen that 
brings your Fondest expectations to life. And you 
can easily afford that dream-come-true because 
it's w^lS within your means! 

Imagine a kitchen so wonderfully convenient that 
kitchen chores, as you know them today, are prac- 
tically abolished! Imagine a kitchen teeming with 
electric appliances that work for you at the snap 
of a switch — "think out" your day's schedule in ad- 
vance! Imagine that same Kitchen with back-saving 
Monel working surfaces and time-saving White- 
head cabinets. Picture all this, and you visualize a 
Whitehead Work-Saving Kitchen, deliberately 
built to spare your energy, and to allow new free- 
dom for more agreeable interests. 

Now think of a kitchen where loveliness and har- 
monious color predominate. Fancy the gleaming 
lustre of Monel Tops and working surfaces . . . the 
sparkling cheer of cabinets, sink and electric ap- 
pliances ... the delightful colors that make your 



kitchen as charming as a modern living room. 
Imagine this, too, and you know why Whitehead 
Kitchens are just as lovely as they are efficient. 

Efficient, did we say? Actually Whitehead 
Kitchens are the nearest approach to perfection 
that science knows. They begin by saving your time, 
and end by dividing your kitchen hours into mo- 
ments to which you actually look forward with 
pleasure. There is no place in them for nerve- 
racking tension . . . none of the old insistence upon 
brawn and muscle and steaming labor! The story of 
how these evils have been abolished is told on later 
pages. Meanwhile, we give you a single example: 

If you have a modern refrigerator, you know how 
greatly it has contributed to your peace of mind, 
how much its automatic features have meant^to 
your pocketbook. 

But — haven't you often longed for a nearby 
working surface where you could conveniently pre- 
pare salads and cold dishes? Haven't you missed a 
convenient compartment where refrigerator utensils 
could be easily reached without unnecessary steps? 
If only your footprints could talk! What a story of 
wasted energy they would tell! 




CAN NOW BE 



YOURS 







The Whitehead Kitchen, in brief, is a combina- 
tion of modern appliances, supplemented by cabi- 
net space and working surfaces — with everything so 
placed that the entire room is considerate of your 
time, constructed to cause you no annoyance, and 
designed to coptivate you with its simple charm 
and unblemished beauty. 

Yet, no matter what the size of your kitchen 
may be, no matter what its shape, there is a White- 
head work-saving plan that will exactly fit your 
needs. For it is true that Whitehead Kitchens are 
custom planned, even though they offer you the 
economies of standard production. 



There was no difficulty, for example, in planning 
the three different-sized kitchens which you see, 
complete with Westinghouse appliances and White- 
head units, on the cover and two facing pages. No 
shopping around for matched equipment to occupy 
appointed spaces, no expensive cutting down of 
stock materials! 

Picture one of these kitchens in your own home. 
Imagine yourself in the center of such a scene. Then 
read, on the following pages, how easy it is to 
make that conception come true. It's a story of ab- 
sorbing interest — a story that every woman ought 
to read! 




ecause 



it 



THE sole objecf of modern planning is fo transform the 
kitchen from sweatshop to workshop. And so, we divide 
your kitchen into major departments where each activity is 
centralized — untangled from others. It doesn't take much re- 
flection to discover that every kitchen has three centers of 
activity — sink, refrigerator and range. 

A mere glance at the pictures on these pages shows how 
Whitehead has made these three work centers effectively self- 
contained by providing just the right amount of storage area 
and working space to meet exact working conditions. Here is 
the modern medium that makes every woman the real mistress 
of her home! 



THE BALANCE OF STORAGE 

All Whitehead Work-Saving Kitchens incorporating West- 
inghouse appliances are planned in accordance with the 
"Balance of Storage" principle which was developed by the 
Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company after five 
years of research and released to the public in 1934. In three 
years of actual use, it has proven its reasonable accuracy as 
the kitchen storage equipment yardstick of proven value. 

It is based on the sole constant factor in a house — the 
number of bedrooms. Briefly, it is as follows: The number of 
bedrooms establishes the normal occupancy of a residence. 
Normal occupancy is based on one person per bedroom for 
ail except the master bedroom, which has two persons. The 
normal occupancy of a house, therefore, is one more person 
than the number of bedrooms. To obtain the actual number of 
persons to be provided for, however, two persons per house 
must be added to take care of the entertainment factor and the 
inevitable accumulation of materials. The actual occupancy, 
therefore, is three persons more than the number of bedrooms. 
For each of these total persons, 6 square feet of wall cabinet 
shelf area is required. The amount of base cabinet storage space 
is governed by the fact that base cabinets should be placed 
directly underneath all wall cabinets, with the exception of the 
space occupied by the major appliances, These two facts give 
us the following storage requirements for any residence. 

Wall Storage Space Base Storage Spaces 

(Minimum Shelf (Minimum Cabinet (Maximum Cabinet 
Area) Length) Length) 

1 bedroom 24 sq. ft. 3 lin. ft. 4^/2 lin. i\. 

2 bedrooms 30 sq. ft. 41/2 lin. ft. 6 lin. ft. 

3 bedrooms 36 sq. ft. 6 lin. ft. 71/2 lin. ft. 

4 bedrooms 42 sq. ft. 71/2 lin. ft. 9 lin. ft. 

5 bedrooms 48 sq. ft. 9 lin. ft. IOV2 lin. ft. 

Under the adjacent illustrated centers, these theoretical 
storage requirements are translated into ONE arrangement of 
standard Whitehead Cabinet units showing the proper propor- 
tion of each center for each of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom residences.

One fourth of kitchen wall cabinet shelf area is required at the 
refrigerator center. The 7V^, 9 and lOV^ square footages, re- 
quired, therefore, respectively for 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses, 
demand a minimum of wall cabinets as shown above. Shelf 
area of cabinets above the refrigerator is not counted, being 
somewhat inaccessible and intended for infrequently used ma- 
terial. These wall cabinets determine minimum base cabinet 
linear footages of 2y2/ 3 and SVi, respectively. Proper re- 
frigerator capacities are 5, 7 and 9.S cubic feet.

and ready to "take it!"

Wall cabinet shelf area at the range center is supplied by wall 
cabinets above the range and adjacent working surface. How- 
ever, area above the range remains constant, due to the rela- 
tively standard range length, and the determining factor is the 
space required over the work surface. The minimum total shelf 
areas for 2, 3 end 4 bedroom houses are 111/2, 13 and 14% 
square feet respectively, the corresponding base cabinet linear 
requirements being 1 V^, S and SV^ feet.

At first glance, it might not seem important to you tKat 
f\ Monel is an alloy of two-thirds Nickel and one- 
third Copper. The fact that this metal has extreme 
durability with the strength and toughness of steel, may 
have little significance. 

But . . . when you realize that Monel is also rust- 
proof and resistant to all food acids and alkalis usually 
found in a home, it begins to have interesting possibilities. 

And when you also find that Monel is not a coating 
but a solid metal all the way through — with nothing to 
chip, crack or wear off, then its advantages in your 
home become obvious. 

All Whitehead Sinks are made of Monel. And when 
you realize that your sink performs the hardest job in all 
your kitchen — then it becomes clear why the Whitehead 
Sink is exactly suited to the modern work-saving kitchen. 

Monel is practically immune to wear and tear. That s 
why it is widely used in railroad dining car kitchens. 



Second, Monel can be kept clean with minimum effort. 
That's why such eminent hotels as the Waldorf-Astoria in 
New York have found it satisfactory for the kitchen. 

Third, the lustre of Monel is as beautiful as old silver — 
a beauty that never departs because Monel is a, solid 
metal all the way through. Watchcases are now being 
made of Monel, because of its beauty. 

These are some of the basic reasons why Whitehead 
selected Monel for sinks and kitchen working surfaces. 

In addition, for your kitchen the Whitehead Monel 
Sink has further advantages that you'll find desirable. It 
is resilient enough to soften impacts of dishes and to 
reduce breakage. You can set hot pans on it without 
fear. And it blends beautifully with any color scheme 
you may have now — or decide on later. » 

For the sink and other working surfaces in your work^ 
saving kitchen, can you imagine a more capable sub- 
stance, a more work-saving material, than Monel?

And when, in addition to Monel sink and working sur- 
faces, you can have Whitehead Cabinets of lasting,highest- 
grade furniture steel — a material that won't warp and swell 
with the weather, that will "take" hard wear indefinitely, 
that Is coated with a beautiful baked enamel finish, then 
it is easy to see how your entire kitchen becomes a more 
satisfying place to work in. Moreover, the same kind of 
material, the same finish, that is employed in your modern 
kitchen appliances. 

'But how does construction save work?" you wonder. 
Take a look at the combination of the Whitehead Steel 
Cabinet anc/the Whitehead Monel Sink. Note the close- 
ness of the bowl to the front of the sink. Notice that 
recessed toe space? You don't bend over to work here, 
but can stand in a natural position. That one feature 
eliminates many a backache. 



Work surfaces that reach just the right height from the 
floor (36 inches) — drawers that slide without sticking — 
doors that open without scraping and close on a bullet 
catch that holds them. 

No jutting hinges to catch your dress, no loose-jointed 
corners to harbor dirt — all corners are welded tight. All 
doors and drawer fronts insulated — they work with the 
noiselessness of falling snow, but with the resiliency of the 
steel of which they are made. 

All cabinets, inside and out, are finished absolutely 
smooth for cleaning. All handles are of that same rust- 
proof metal that forms your work surfaces — MONEL. 

The durability of Monel and steel for permanence, 
careful construction that eliminates annoyances — White- 
head has made sure that you'll enjoy these work-saving 
features for years to come!

'LvtJ ft Westinghouse Dishwasher 




FOR THE 



More than twice as much of your time 
is spent at the sink than at any other 
center in your kitchen. That's why you 
need an efficient, compact unit that will 
save you time. That's why Whitehead 
created this cabinet sink with its efficient 
working area and sufficient cabinet 
space. 

Here is something more than just a- 
place to clean your dishes or wash your 
vegetables. It's a regular sanitation 
headquarters — with a place for every- 
thing that has to do with operations 
around the sink. AND it is equipped 
with every convenience to make your 
kitchen more livable and your working 
hours more pleasant! 

There is ample storage space, for In- 
stance, for towels, pans, wash cloths, 
soap, washing powders. There's a big, 
roomy drawer for cutlery and th^ hun- 
dred and one gadgets you need when 
preparing a meal. In short, there's a 
place for everything you need to make 
your sink the compact, independent unit 
it ought to be. 

And this very same sink is supplied 
with single or double drainboard — just 
as you want it. In fact, as the table on 
the opposite page shows, there is a 
sire for every possible need, including 
your own. The opposite page also 
shows the cabinet arrangements for every 
model. 

Similar ensembles incorporate the 
popular Westinghouse Dishwasher, for 
Whitehead Cabinet Sinks are built with 
justsuch an eventuality in view. The West- 
inghouse Dishwasher fills and empties 
automatically and is easier to clean 
than an ordinary dishpan. When the 
dishwasher is not in use, it is concealed 
in the cabinet. Thus, with the aid of 
Whitehead and Westinghouse, you can 
turn an age-old three-times-a-day task 
Into a few moments of watchful waiting!

AMONG some women it is erroneously believed thaf 
^\ the Whitehead Double Bow! Sink is built exclusively for 
large family homes or for boarding houses and restaurants 
where "Kitchen traffic" is extra heavy. But the Double Bowl 
Sink is highly desirable for any household — providing, of 
course, that there is space enough for installation. For it 
stands to reason that where you have twice the number of 
conveniences to speed you through your daily tasks in- 
volving the sink, there you have twice the efficiency and half 
the labor and trouble that such chores ordinarily require. 

The duplicate bowls, for instance, permit work on two 
separate kitchen jobs simultaneously. Used pots may be 
stored in one bowl while vegetables are cleaned in another. 
Mixing can be done at one bowl, while cleaning is proceed- 
ing at the other. Preparation of recipes requiring cracked ice 
may be carried out at one bowl, while the other bowl is in 
use for storage or for preparation of other dishes. Many 
other double advantages will suggest themselves in actual 



use. 



The Double Bowls, of course, incorporate all features 
of the Whitehead Monel Sink of which you read on preced- 
ing pages. As shown by the table and diagrams opposite, 
all sinks are 25 inches in depth, but range from 84 inches to 
168 inches in length.

JUST as in the single bowl sink, the Westinghouse Dish^ 
washer con be added to certain of these Whitehead 
Double Bowl Sink Ensembles. 

With this combination, you have all that is needed to 
rescue meal preparation and clean-up from the wearisome 
task it used to be. The Westinghouse Dishwasher is usually lo- 
cated immediately to the right of the right-hand bowl— the 
handiest position — and it fills and empties automatically. 
It is easily cleaned and is out of sight when not in use. 

Women who have this triple unit, consisting of the Double 
Bowl Sink and the Dishwasher, in their kitchens are finding in 
it everything that their dreams of kitchen efficiency could 
visualize. 



If, for any reason, you prefer 
to have the dishwasher separate 
from the sink unit, you will be 
glad to know that there is an 
individual Westinghouse Dish- 
washer available and that it 
may be equipped with a White-

working surfaces in your modern 
kitchen.

WHEN you want a utensil or one of the bulk staples (flour, bread, 
potatoes, etc.) you want them right at hand — not at some distant 
point from where you're working. 

Whitehead Steel Base Cabinets, for "on the spot" use around refriger- 
ator and range centers, speed up preparation of meals by saving need- 
less steps. Because your needs may vary, we furnish two types of 
cabinets — the "All Drawer" and Cupboard styles — and each is avail- 
able in six different widths. 

Here again, by design and construction, Whitehead engineers 
visualized your kitchen as a whole! You will Find the cabinets identical 
in quality to your Westinghouse Range or Refrigerator. When installed, 
they form an operating unit of the same finish, colors, width and working 
heights. By increasing the usefulness of your major kitchen appliances 
these cabinets make your kitchen really efficient. 

All base cabinets are 30V2 " high so that, when assembled with the 
recessed sub-base for toe space and the Monel working top, their

working surface is at an ideal height — 36 ", the same as the Range and 
Sink. Standard colors are White, Light and Dark Ivory, and Light Green. 

Whitehead construction entails an equal amount of care. Drawers 
and Cabinets are constructed so that accessories (flour and bread bins, 
lid compartment, cutlery trays, etc.) may be readily removed for clean- 
ing. Drawers slide easily, doors open and close at finger touch, and the 
cabinets themselves present a smooth surface — unbroken except for 
handles — and easily kept in "brand new" condition. 

Step into your kitchen and imagine these cabinets in the very places 
where they are needed. How essential a part of your modern kitchen 
they really are!

ithMONEL 



On page 6 we described the reasons why 
Monel was selected for the modern sink. 

Now visualize that same Monel^ offering 
you a continuous unbroken working surface 
for those other operations that take place in 
your kitchen. It can reach from refrigerator to 
sink — from range to sink — or cover any parts 
of the base cabinet space your kitchen plan 
calls for. 

What a wealth of convenience! What a 
world of needed working space! But there are 
many other advantages this surface brings to 
you. 

Since Monel has no harmful effect on foods, 
and since it is a solid, non-absorbent material, 
you can prepare foods right on the cabinet 
top — mixing, kneading, arranging meats, 
without fear. At a great saving of time, too! 
And since this surface holds no cracks, edg- 
ings, ridges, joints or crannies to harbor grease 
or food particles, you can clean it quicker 
than you can wash a pan. What is more it cleans 
more thoroughly. Ordinary wiping with a 
damp cloth, and an occasional cleansing with 
washing powder, will keep it always new. And 
remember, it is a solid material, not a coating. 
Yet it has a resilience which saves glass break- 
ing and dish chipping — hitherto a "necessary 
part" of kitchen experience. 

Remember also that your kitchen doesn't 
have to conform to some "average" size or 
shape. As shown by the table at the right, 
there are fourteen lengths available (15" to 
114"), designed to fit any combination of 
base cabinets you might need. 



STEEL SINK FRONTS 

Undersink assembly for all standard size sink cabinet ensembles is 
shown on pages 8, 9, 10, 11, In any undersink assemblage for inter- 
mediate size or custom-built sinks, the Sink Front should be determined 
by the overall length of bowl or bowls. 

Sink Fronts are available as illustrated in eight sizes (in standard 
colors as base cabinets), and this range of sizes if properly 




combined with base cabinets and fillers will meet arty undersink cabinet 
requirements. 

Sink Fronts are not cabinets but fronts only and are used to conceal 
plumbing and to complete base cabinet assembly. Bottom plates, how- 
ever, are available so that undersink space may be used for the storage 
of pots and pons.

^ALLand UTILITY CABINETS 




LJERE are both convenience and utility to the last degree — in wall cabinets 
' ' oi varied sizes — that form an integral and desirable part of all three of your 
kitchen centers. They provide storage space for goods and staples, glasses and 
dishware, condiments and the myriad other items needed immediately above the 
range, refrigerator and sink. The kitchens and work centers on pages 2, 3, 4 and 5 
show how these cabinets can be grouped to conserve your time and vitality. 

Mere photographs, however, cannot portray the study spent in designing 
these cabinets to make them extraordinarily useful. Shelves, for instance, are 
adjustable at half-inch intervals. The cabinets themselves are 13" deep — adapted 
so perfectly to the base cabinets that you can work comfortably without fear of 
bumping your head. The eighteen different sizes provide for every con- 
ceivable need. 

Constructed of the finest grade furniture steel, finished in baked enamel, with 
concealed hinges, and Monel handles, they add the last touch of efficiency to 
your kitchen — in appearance as well as actuality. 

Standard colors are White, Light and Dark Ivory, and Light Green.

than the base and wall cabinets which provide storage space at your 
three kitchen centers. Pictured, for instance, are implement cabins*' 



that keep out of sight those awkward cleaning implements such as 
brooms, mops and pails,- cabinets for clean and soiled linen and for 
vegetable storage; special cabinets that make the dead corner under 
your working surface completely available, as well as electrically 
heated cabinets for towel drying and plate warming.

WHAT WOULD 



Take a critical look at your 
kitchen. Do you see possi- 
bililies for impiovement? Then 
lake the (irti step to make thai 
picture cteai! 



V/ith your Weslinghouse 
dealer,take certain dimensions 
o( your present kitchen. He has 
a planning sheet on which he 
also will draw a rough layout 
of your present kitchen. 



Kitchen experts will go over 
the layout, plan your three 
work centers in proper rela- 
tion, recommend proper cabi- 
net accessories, quote the 
entire cost, 



A planning expert will then 
visualise their recommenda- 
tions (see the drawing at the 
light). He will show the new 
door plan and views of each 
of the side walls. 



These recommendations, to- 
gether with the artist's draw- 
ing and estimate, will be sent 
to you for study. Then you 
will really see your kitchen 
OS it might be — recognizing 
beauty that perhaps has never 
been apparent — counting the 
wearisome steps that can be 
saved— and shouldl. - -

MY 



KITCHEN LOOK LIKE? 



THROUGHOUT this book we have presented a picture of the factors that 
make for work-saving kitchens — enlightened planning, modern materials, 
proper accessories. We have told you that the products you saw pictured were 
designed to fit your kitchen. Perhaps you've been wondering how they might 
really transform it, and what the cost would be. 

Whitehead's kitchen plan goes farther than asking you to accept statements 
of fact on faith. You can actually see your kitchen on paper — exactly as it 
could look with all of these work-saving features installed. You can compare 
that paper plan with your present layout, and see for yourself the inherent 
beauty and convenience lying dormant in your kitchen. You can also know 
just what such a kitchen costs! 

Your Westinghouse representative has a planning sheet and can help you write 
down the dimensions of your present kitchen so that kitchen experts may have 
the facts for concrete visualization. 

These experts will then furnish you with a finished drawing of a modern Monel 
kitchen— not anybody's kitchen, but YOURS. An itemized estimate of equip- 
ment needed will accompany the plan. It will take into full consideration all 
modern appliances you have already installed. Follow the five easy steps 
shown at the left, and see just what your kitchen CAN BE. 

If your Westinghouse dealer has no planning sheets available he car], secure 
one for you. If you prefer you can write Whitehead for its individual sheet^ — 
"A Speciol Invitation." 




This might be your plan showing how experienced planning 
and modern equipment can transform your kitchen into a 
room where daily tasks will be a pleasure. ■ Q 



DON*T FORGET 



HOT WATER 



/yleittu ot CLEAN (^zi^i l/Uatet U e^^a^iial m ANY l\itck 



en. 



A kitchen "must" that has long been a command 
of fastidious housewives Is — cleanliness! But when 
it comes to clean hot water, there is another point 
that is equally essential — an automatic supply! 
Given these two, life in your kitchen can flow with- 
out interruption, fear or danger. 

This might seem like ajfi exaggerated statement. 
But if you have ever been plagued with contami- 
nated hot water that comes from a rusty tank . . . 
if you have ever raged at the long delay some- 
times experienced in getting any hot water at all, 
whether clean or rusty . . . then you can well ap- 
preciate what CLEAN hot water, automatically 
delivered, really means. 

That's why the Westinghouse Electric Hot Water 
Heater pictured at the right is not only fool-proof 
in operation, but also embodies a Whitehead 
Monel Storage Tank. For Monel cannot rust, will 
always deliver immaculate, sparkling hot water so 
long as the source is pure. 

Whitehead Monel Tanks are guaranteed in 
writing for twenty years against rust and corrosion. 
Your Westinghouse Dealer will be only too glad 
to tell you about them. 

The small, table-top Westinghouse Electric Water 
Heater pictured below also contains a Whitehead 
Monel Tank and, in addition, has a Monel Cabinet 
Top. This heater stores up an ample supply of clean 
hot water for all kitchen needs,- and is so situated 
that the space above it becomes an extra working 
surface for you.
