The front cover of the pamphlet features a black and white drawing of a woman wearing a small chef's hat, holding a platter of vegetables and a roast. A Kitchen Kraft waterless cooker sits on a stove to her right. Text on the front cover reads Better Cooking, The Waterless Cooker Recipe Book, The Kitchen Kraft Company, West Bend, Wisconsin. Also included on the front cover is the logo for the Good Housekeeping Institute, partially over a red background, though much of the cover color is white. The back cover has a red frame around Service information, again with the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. Nine of the inside pages include descriptions of and usage recommendations for the waterless cooker. The remaining inside pages are dedicated to recipes, categorized according to: Meats; Vegetables; Desserts; Complete Meals; Preserving and Canning; Cold Pack Canning; and Baking.
