Hold on just one minute, Frigidaire. This ad throws down the gauntlet in the first sentence, boasting that the '...exclusive Heat-Minder Unit "thinks" for you, watches food better than you can...'. Unless the range features the 1955 equivalent of a web cam, the only watching that will be done will still be by the mindful cook. I will give credit to the early appearance of a cooktop thermostat, though; a distant ancestor of today's induction technology, it seems the most intelligent element of the Thinking Top. It certainly surpasses the Deep-Well Cooker, whose shortcomings are in full evidence here.
