The persona of Betty Crocker was invented by the Washburn-Crosby Company which would later become General Mills as a feminine "face" for the company's public relations. More than 75 million copies of the book have been sold since it was first published in The original edition assumed very little knowledge on the part of the reader. The book made extensive use of photography and charts to make its techniques accessible to beginning cooks. It featured an extensive glossary that explained cooking terminology and in addition to recipes it offered instructions for using then-new appliances such as refrigerators and electric ranges. The book's advice extends beyond the kitchen as well: the edition includes an exhortation to comb one's hair and apply make-up before breakfast each day. The recipes in the first edition are "basic" according to a modern review, and many are "grossly outdated"; there are several recipes for hamloaf and an "international" recipe for "Spaghetti Oriental".
