Patent Claim

The double-cover electrical gastronomy grill, having a cuboid main casing, fitted with a socket for connecting electric current, to which the rear of two separate top covers are spring mounted side by side, and inside the main casing of which and to the upper covers of which heating plates are mounted, the lower and upper, with the top covers being equipped with pressure elements and heat insulating handles, while the front wall of the main casing including a control panel equipped with a temperature controller, a time indicator and operating indicator, characterized by each of the upper heating plates (1A, IB) being fitted with a patron heater (2A, 2B), the bottom heating plate (3) in the area of effect of each of the upper heating plates (1A, IB) being fitted with patron heaters (3A, 3B,), and the handles (4A, 4B) mounted to the top covers (1A, IB) having LEDs attached, that are connected to the temperature controller (5), and the control panel (6) being equipped with two time indicators (6A, 6B), separate for each area of effect the upper heating plates (1A, IB).

Description:
Double-cover electrical gastronomy grill

The subject of the invention is a double-cover electrical gastronomy grill for the purposes of small catering.

An already established device is the double panini press for home and small gastronomy usage equipped with hot plates using heat pipes. Dividing the heating surface into two parts enables the possibility of grilling one serving of food without the need of using the entire heating surface of the device. However, when using both covers with heating surfaces the types of food have to have a similar preparation time. Grilling products of different sizes, thus requiring different preparation times, requires manual, often intuitive, time selection, due to the fact that only one time setting can be set for the entire device. The specific conditions of the services of small gastronomy can be observed at petrol stations for example, where one employee is required to perform many tasks and, additionally, fulfill various client orders regarding the sizes of the hot meals ordered, such as sandwiches or buns. In cases such as these a diversified grilling time is essential. Additionally, in the case of a single-employee service greater emphasis should be put on the requirements of safety, the explicitness of the indication of the catering service having been finished, and the ease of use.

Much significance is also attributed to the efficiency and reliability of the device. In the case of a heat pipe malefaction the established panini presses are not repairer on location, which causes the need for possessing a replacement device, or the suspension of providing catering services until the repairs are finished. The double-cover electrical gastronomy grill, having a cuboid main casing fitted with a socket for connecting electric current, to which two separate top covers are spring mounted side by side, and inside the main casing and in the upper covers, the lower and upper heating plates are mounted, with the upper covers being equipped with pressure elements and heat-insulating handles, while the front wall of the main casing includes a control panel equipped with a temperature regulator, a time indicator and an operating indicator, is characterized according to the invention by the fact that each upper heating surface us equipped with patron heaters, and the lower heating surface is equipped with a patron heater in the area of effect of the upper surfaces. The upper cover handles are fitted with LEDs connected to the temperature controller. The control panel is equipped with two time indicators, separate for each area of effect of the upper heating plates.

Thanks to the use of patron heaters it is possible to set separate working times for both heating fields, and in the case of one being burnt, to perform a quick replacement, which can be done on site. In such cases the suspension of the catering service lasts only for the duration of the replacement of the heater. The installation of LEDs in the handles of the upper covers, connected to the temperature controllers, enables quick recognition of the progress of the process and improves the operational safety by improving the visibility of the indicator.

The invention is explained in greater detail in the exemplary embodiment drawing in which Fig. 1 shows the open grill in perspective view from the front, while the Fig. 2 shows the open grill in perspective view from the bottom.

The double-cover electrical gastronomy grill has a cuboid main casing 7 made of stainless steel. In the rear wall of the main casing 7 there is an electrical connection socket 8, and by means of springs 10A, 10B two separate upper covers 9A, 9B are attached side by side. Inside the main casing 7 and in the upper covers 9A, 9B, the following heating plates are mounted: lower 3 and upper 1A, IB. The top covers 9A, 9B are equipped with a spring-loaded pressure element 10 and heat-insulating handles 4A, 4B. The front wall of the main casing 7 includes a control panel 6 which is equipped with a temperature controller 5, an operating indicator 11 and two time indicators 6A, 6B, separate for each area of effect of the upper heating plates 1A, IB. In each of the upper 1A, IB heating plates there are two heaters 2k, 2B. In the lower heating plate 3, two patron heaters 3A, 3B, are embedded in the area of effect of each of the upper heating plates 1A, IB. In the handles 4A, 4B of the upper covers 1A, IB LEDs connected to the temperature controller 5 are mounted.

After placing the grilled products on the bottom plate, the products are pressed with the top covers. Using the time indicators the grilling time is set separately for each of the products. The passage of time is indicated by the change of the color of the LED mounted in the handle.
