The technical FIELD

The present invention relates to a kitchen appliance, a jug, designed to interact with a kitchen unit, and the host of the cooking device and pitcher. In particular the invention relates to a kitchen appliance called a juicer, which is provided with means to prevent drops of juice on the base surface of the cooking device.

The LEVEL of TECHNOLOGY

Kitchen appliances used for food processing, can be found in many kitchens both home and restaurant and so on. A special type of kitchen appliance that is used in the handling of food intended for handling food in such a way that the obtained fluid or liquefied foods. These kitchen appliances are, for example, mixers, blenders and juicers. Such devices are widely known and used, for example, to squeeze the juice present in fruits or vegetables, or mix some food, so that people can easily enjoy the consumption of such foods, which includes all the useful vitamins and nutrients of fruits or vegetables. Usually receive fluid foods, such as fruit or vegetable juice, for example, served in a pitcher or glass.

The problem is such as kitchen appliances is often their outlet continue to drip after the pitcher or the glass has been removed, that is no longer located near the outlet. This creates a drop of fluid, i.e. a fluid food on a supporting surface, on which is situated the kitchen appliance. Supporting surface such as a table cover, you will need to clean in order to avoid sticky spots Polovinka fluid. This is inconvenient for many users.

In order to solve the problem, kitchen appliance, in particular juicer has been proposed in WO 2009/010897, which has a construction which is designed to prevent dripping juice from a juicer. Known juicer contains the outlet with spout for issuing juice extractor, in which the spout is configured to receive rotary and curved, that is, of a bent tube, which can be rotated around the longitudinal axis of the spout 180 degrees. Thus, the curved tube, or, essentially, nose, whose continuation it is, can be located in two positions. One position in which the tube is rotated upward and in which the issuance of juice extractor is prevented, and one position in which the tube is rotated downward and in which the issuance of juice possible. In the position in which the tube is rotated upward, Apana juice from the tube and, thus, the spout is prevented. The tube must be rotated manually. Although WO 2009/010897 provides a solution to the above problem for some users to rotate the tube by hand, which requires some significant rotation, that is, 180 degrees, still can be considered inconvenient. This is especially true for people who have reduced motor skills or dexterity of their hands or arms. As additional problems may be noted that the spout known juicer, you must turn in a time when the pitcher is still located under the spout. If the pitcher is removed before turning the spout, there is still a significant risk of achieving drops of food support surface.

The OBJECTIVE of the INVENTION

Therefore, it would be desirable to provide a kitchen appliance, which further reduces the likelihood of dripping food on the supporting surface, at the same time being easily manageable. In any case it would be desirable to provide an alternative to juicing, known from WO 2009/010897.

The INVENTION

From GB2041727 known provision of kitchen appliance for processing food products, comprising: a housing surrounding a cavity for receiving the mentioned food products; an outlet for the fluid issuing food and the body; a collector for receiving and collecting food and fluid delivery fluid food to the outlet, which outlet is provided with a spout having a closed end which is connected with the said outlet opening, and the said spout is made to rotate around an essentially horizontal axis between a first position in which fluid foods can be issued from the spout, and a second position in which the fluid issuing food from the spout is prevented, and in which the said spout is constructed and arranged to control a switch acting on the nose, in order to pull spout in its second position, thereby automatically bringing the spout to the outside position in which the fluid issuing food prevented.

Kitchen appliance according to the present invention differs in that the spout is made so that any remaining food products in the spout, drain back to the closed far end of the spout when the spout is in its second position to prevent the issuance of the fluent food product through the spout.

Spout kitchen device constructed and arranged to control a switch that can act on the spout, in order to pull the spout vivtoria position.

Ensuring that the spout of the juicer can be rotated around an essentially horizontal axis, achieved that the spout can be moved between the aforementioned first and second positions in an essentially vertical direction. Thus, instead of rotating the spout or tube, as proposed in WO 2009/010897, simple move in the vertical direction sufficient to move the nozzle between the two positions. This movement is much easier turning. Moreover, provision of the spout, which can be controlled by a switch that is running out spout kitchen device in a second position in which the fluid issuing food prevented achieved that the spout is automatically placed in the off position. In other words, the spout will occupy the second position when it is not located in the first position and automatically, under the action of the switch, return to the second position. Therefore, the risk of achieving drops support surface on which is located the kitchen appliance is reduced.

In an embodiment, the cooking device further comprises a switch that contains one or more of the elements: a spring, a counterweight and/or the magnet. This provides a suitable and reliable method for automatic return of the spout in its second position.

In a variant the execution the said spout is configured to insert at least partially in the drain spout of the jug. This reduces the risk of dripping of fluid food products during draining fluid food in a jar.

In an embodiment, the above mentioned switch contains a lower guide surface of the discharge spout of the jug, which is arranged to contact with the spout of the kitchen appliance and tighten it in said second position after removing the spout kitchen device from the drain spout of the jug. Therefore, this alternative implementation provides additional switch option to preload the spout kitchen device in the second position.

Moreover, this ensures that the movement of the spout is a drain spout of the jug. Therefore, the user must himself or herself be put into action or manage spout. Instead, the shift of the jug will drain spout in contact with the spout kitchen device and will switch its movement. Because the spout kitchen device partially inserted into the drain spout, the risk of dripping on the bearing surface is reduced even more. Ensuring that the spout kitchen device moves the discharge spout of the jug, is achieved by automatic movement, avoiding any conscious action by the user is the appropriate fields on the movement of the spout.

In an embodiment, the said switch includes an upper guide surface of the discharge spout of the jug, which is arranged to contact with the spout kitchen device and configured to preload it in said first position when the spout kitchen device is inserted, at least partially in the drain spout of the jug. This again ensures that the movement of the spout is a drain spout of the jug, the user must himself or herself be put into action or manage spout. Instead, the location of the jar into a position where he is ready to take food from the kitchen unit will drain spout in contact with the spout kitchen device and will automatically switch its move to its first position.

In an embodiment, the spout kitchen device is tilted downward relative to the horizontal axis between 5 and 25 degrees, preferably about 15 degrees, in said first position, and is inclined upward relative to a horizontal axis between 3 and 15 degrees, preferably about 5 degrees, in the above-mentioned second position. These angles provide the proper drain characteristics of the spout kitchen appliance and ensure that the drops do not reach the supporting surface, as the spout is rotated up enough in his second Polo the attachment.

In an embodiment, the spout kitchen device contains a first far end, which takes place at least partially in the housing and configured to receive fluid food from the exhaust hole, and has an open end that protrudes from the housing. This provides a simple and reliable design of the spout, which can easily be translated between its two positions.

In an embodiment, the extractor further comprises a fixing device for fixing the spout kitchen device in the above-mentioned provisions, so mentioned spout remained in his last position and could not be accidentally moved. Therefore, only the drive can move the spout between the two provisions.

In an embodiment, the locking device includes a shaped surface provided on the spout kitchen device, and a flexible flat spring element configured to interact with said shaped surface. This provides a reliable way of fixing the position of the spout, at the same time still allowing easy movement between the two positions, so that kitchen appliance remained easy and convenient to use.

In an embodiment, the spout kitchen device in the second position obrazu the tank to hold excess fluid food products. Due to its focus up in the second position, the spout is capable of holding a number of food products that may come out of the collector, what can be expected if the fluid food products have a relatively high viscosity.

In an embodiment, the juicer is an electric kitchen appliance and contains the drive motor, and an electrical switch actuated spout kitchen appliance that blocks the operation of the kitchen appliance, when the spout is in its second position. This ensures that it is impossible to operate the kitchen appliance when the pitcher is not in place to collect fluid food from the kitchen appliance.

The invention additionally relates to the pitcher, specially made with the possibility of interaction with the cooking device as described above. The invention additionally relates to a cooking device as described above, and the jug is specially designed to interact with such a cooking device, in the collection.

It should be noted that a patent application great Britain GB 2041727 discloses A juicer having a spout outlet, containing groove, the valve element and sealing element. GB 2041727 A shows the presence of a gutter spout outlet, displaced aemula between the first stable position, in which the spout is closed, and a second stable position in which the spout allows for juice. It requires user intervention to move the spout GB 2041727 A between its two stable positions. In the invention according to paragraph 1, the spout kitchen device operates the switch, clamped spout in its position in which the fluid issuing food prevented.

Additionally it should be noted that the publication of the patent application US2006/086261 A1 discloses a food processor with the spout, which is swivel mounted to rotate between a locking position in which the portion of the spout engages with the tube outlet for juice to block the flow of juice from the said tube outlet, and a non-blocking position in which the flow of juice possible. It requires user intervention to rotate the spout US2006/086261 A1 between its locked and unlocked positions. In the invention according to paragraph 1, the spout kitchen device operates the switch, clamped spout in its position in which the fluid issuing food prevented.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION of EXAMPLES

In the following description of the invention, the cooking device according to the invention, will be described on the example of the juicer. We emphasize that the invention nor is granichen, neither intended to be limited to this juicer, but equally applicable to other kitchen appliances, such as blenders, mixers and the like, and even coffee makers and universal devices distribution of water, for example. In other words, the invention is applicable to kitchen appliances, which are made with the processing of foods and can apply flowable food products such as juice from fruits and/or vegetables, milk shakes and so on. In other words, a food product that has a certain fluidity.

Fig.1 shows a kitchen appliance 1, which is shown in example a juicer along with a pitcher or jug 2 for juice. Juicer 1 includes a housing 3 which surrounds the cavity 4 (see Fig.2). Juicer 1 is further provided with a spout 5, which is designed with the capability of issuing juice extractor 1 in the jar 2. Jug 2 for juice in the example of Fig.1 is equipped with a rotary cap 6 and a handle 7. The handle 7 is provided with a drive button 8, which can be pressed by the user to open the lid 6. Additionally, pitcher 2 for juice contains the discharge spout 9, which allows you to drain the juice contained in the jar 2 for juice, or, as will be described below, serve in a pitcher 2 for juice from the spout 5. Juicer 1 has a loading tube 10, having a pusher element 14 (see Fig.2), which used the SJ for submission of fruits or vegetables in the juicer 1. In the example shown, the juicer 1 is an electric juicer, which is driven by an electric motor 21 (see Fig.2). Therefore, provided the switch 11 power management juicer 1. Finally, juicer 1 includes a cover 12, which supports the loading tube 10 and includes a container 13 for pulp (see Fig.2).

Fig.2 shows a view in cross section of the juicer 1, i.e. kitchen appliance, together with jug 2 for juice. As juicer 1 and jug 2 for juice placed on the supporting surface 20, such as the lid of the Desk or work surface in the kitchen. Jug 2 for juice, shown in Fig.2, has closed the cover 6, which must be removed manually, as an alternative to turning the cover 6, as shown in Fig.1. As you can see in more detail in Fig.2, juicer 1 and in particular the cavity 4, which is formed by the collector 22, which is configured to receive and collect the juice. The collector 22 is equipped with a bleed hole 25, which opens into the spout 5, which opens at its upper part. As will be described in more detail with reference to Fig.3A-5B, the nozzle 5 is made to rotate relative to the housing 3 and is shown in Fig.2 outside or second position in which the juice may not be issued.

For issuing juice (flowable food product from the cavity through the outlet 25 to the nozzle 5 and into the jar 2 for juice spout 5 cooking device 1, it is necessary to move so he was able to deliver the juice jug 2 for juice. As noted, the spout 5 is made to rotate relative to the housing 3. In particular, the spout 5 pivotally attached to the manifold 22, as can be seen in more detail in Fig.4. The spout 5 pivotally attached to the manifold 22 and is rotated around a hinge 23, which forms an essentially horizontal axis. Therefore, part of the spout 5 which projects from the housing 3 can be moved in a vertical direction and configured to rotate relative to the housing 3 when the juicer 1 collected. According to the aspect of the present invention, the control or movement of the spout 5 cooking device or extractor 1 can be achieved by the interaction of the spout 5 of the extractor 1 and the discharge spout 9 jar 2 for juice. This interaction is shown in more detail with reference to Fig.3A and 3B.

The user who wants to use the juicer 1, puts the jug 2 for juice from the position as shown in Fig.2, in the direction of the extractor, as indicated by the arrow a in Fig.3A. The user shifts the jug 2 for juice on the supporting surface 20 in order to cause the discharge spout 9 jar 2 for juice in contact with the spout 5 juicer (kitchen appliance). The spout 5 has the form of a tubular element and has an outlet 5a for his long con is e, which extends from the housing 3. Note that the spout 5 may also be in the form of a funnel or drain gutters. For clarity, the area In Fig.3A shown in more detail in Fig.5A. Similarly, the area in Fig.3B illustrates in more detail in Fig.5B.

In the position of pitcher 2 for juice in Fig.3A drain spout 9 only applies to the spout 5. As you can see, the discharge opening or open end 5a of the nozzle 5 was provided with an inclined surface. The drain spout 9 is equipped with the inner shaped surface, which contains the upper guide surface 30 for contacting with an open far end 5a of the nozzle 5 of the extractor 1, and the lower guide surface 31 for contacting with the lower part of the spout 5 of the extractor 1. Upper guide surface 30 is designed to interoperate with an open far end 5a of the nozzle 5. In particular, thanks to the shape of the upper guide surface 30 and tilt the far end 5a any further movement of the jar 2 for juice in the direction of arrow A will cause the spout 5 to move in a downward direction indicated by the arrow D, that is, the spout 5 of the extractor 1 turn or turn around the hinge 23. This is shown in Fig.3B and 5B, respectively. In other words, the spout 5 of the extractor 1 is controlled by a drain spout 9 jar 2, which performs the function of the switch but for the ICA 5 juicer 1.

When the jug 2 for juice was completely bound to move to the juicer 1, its spout 5 will continue, at least partially in the drain spout 9 jar 2 for juice. In this position, the spout 5 is tilted down and makes an angle of about fifteen degrees with the horizontal. However, any angle between five and twenty-five degrees possible. Because the spout 5 will only begin its rotary movement, when part of it is still ongoing in the drain spout 9 (see Fig.3A), there is no risk that any amount of juice flowing through the spout 5 of the collector 22 of the arrow E, drop on the supporting surface 20. The position of the spout 5 in Fig.3B and 5B is the first position of the spout 5. When the user wants to remove the jug 2 for juice or when the reservoir 22 is empty jug 2 for juice can be removed from its position as shown in Fig.3B. This will be performed by the capture jar 2 for juice for the handle 7 and the lifting and pulling jug 2 for juice from a juicer. This is indicated by the arrow F. while the pitcher 2 for juice is moved in the direction of the arrow F, the lower guide surface 31 of the discharge spout 9 will contact with the lower or bottom part of the spout 5 and turning it up in a second position in which the flow of juice prevented. Therefore, again the drain spout 9 performs the function switch to the spout 5 juice is vigilance 1.

When the jug 2 for juice has been removed, the spout 5 will take its second position as shown in Fig.2, for example. By removal of the pitcher 2 for juice spout 5 is moved upwards, which ensures that any remaining juice, which may still be in the spout 5 will drain back to the closed far end 40 of the spout 5. Moreover, prevents the leakage of any remaining juice, which can be either in the manifold 22 or the outlet 25 of the spout 5 and the bearing surface 20. In particular, the spout 5 will make an angle of about five degrees in its second position, which collects a certain amount of juice is closed near the far end of the 40, that is, the spout 5 in its second position forms a reservoir for the excess juice. This is shown in Fig.5A, in which a small amount of juice 50 can be seen in the spout 5 of the extractor 1. Note that any angle between three and fifteen degree possible.

Conveniently, when at least two positions of the spout 5 is clearly defined. Therefore, it is possible to provide a juice extractor 1 according to the invention with a locking device which determines such provisions. As can be seen in Fig.5A and 5B, this fixture can be made of shaped or wavy surface 41 provided on the closed far end 40 of the spout 5, which interacts with p is askim spring element 42, secured to the manifold 22. Also it may be convenient to provide an alternative tool that acts as a switch for the spout 5 of the extractor 1 and is arranged to preload the spout 5 in its second position (the position of Fig.2)to ensure that the spout 5 is always in the position of no flow, if the pitcher for juice is missing. Such alternative switches may be in the form of elastic elements such as springs or magnets, which act on the spout 5, or may be in the form of counterweight, which, if released, under the action of gravity rotates the spout 5 in its second position.

Note here that the present invention is particularly useful when used with a jug of juice, which is specially adapted for use with a juicer, as described. However, the spout 5 may also be controlled directly by the user, manually. Therefore, the user can press the spout 5 down, if he wants to drain the juice, or press the nose up when he finished. The provision of the above-mentioned switches are particularly useful in this case because the user may simply release the spout, in order to translate it into the second position (position no flow). Such drive means may, as noted, for example, contain magni is, the spring, or a combination of both. Other solutions are also possible.

As a safety device which can be provided by providing additional power switch, which is actuated by the spout of the juicer. In particular, it may be provided that the nose can block the juicer, electric motor, when the spout is in its second position.

The invention has been described in relation to juicing. However, it is clear that the invention is not limited to these examples, but these examples are given only to illustrate a particular embodiment of the invention. In particular, we note that the invention has been described on the example of the juicer. Note, again, that the invention is neither limited to, nor intended to be limited to this juicer, but equally applicable to other kitchen appliances, such as blenders, mixers and the like, and even coffee makers and universal devices distribution of water, for example. In other words, the invention is applicable to kitchen appliances, which are made with the processing of foods and can apply flowable food products such as juice from fruits and/or vegetables, milk shakes and so on. In other words, a food product that has a certain fluidity.

Additionally, you can also turn the move the spout of the juicer alternative way as explained above. For example, it is also possible to provide a spout of the juicer magnet and to provide the drain spout of the jug metal insert (or do a spout or a whole pitcher of iron), so that when the pitcher is near juicer, the moving of his nose.
