炊飯器

Rice cooker

Abstract

【課題】商用電源から電力を供給し調理物あるいは鍋の温度を検知する温度検知手段を有する炊飯器において、温度検知手段への電力供給をカットする省電力待機状態を持ち、使用感を損ねることなく、使用開始時の温度に応じた的確な炊飯を行えるようにする。 【解決手段】調理物を入れる鍋1を加熱手段2により加熱し、調理物あるいは鍋1の温度を温度検知手段3により検知し、温度検知手段3を動作させるための電力供給を行わないようにする省電力待機状態と電力供給を行う通常待機状態を切替手段5により切り替え、制御手段6により温度検知手段3からの入力により加熱手段2を制御するとともに切替手段5を制御する。制御手段6は、温度検知手段3による検知温度が所定の温度以下になるまで切替手段5を制御して省電力待機状態にならないようにする。 【選択図】 図1
PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a rice cooker having a temperature sensing means for supplying an electrical power from a commercial power supply to detect a temperature of either a cooked object or contents in a pot, which includes a power saving standby state for shutting a supply of electrical power to a temeprature detecting means and a positive rice cooking corresponding to a temperature at the time of starting the use of rice cooker can be carried out without damaging a feeling of its practical use. SOLUTION: A pot 1 putting a cooked object therein is heated with a heating means 2. A temperature of either a cooked object or the pot 1 is detected by a temperature detecting means 3. A power saving state where a supplying of electrical power for use in operating the temperature detecting means 3 and a normal waiting state for carrying out supplying of electrical power are changed over by a changing-over means 5. The heating means 2 is controlled with an input from the temperature detecting means 3 under the control of a control means 6 and at the same time the changing-over means 5 is controlled. The control means 6 controls the changing-over means 5 until the detected temperature detected by the temperature detecting means 3 has a value less than a predetermined temperature so as to prevent it from having the power saving state.
