Description

本発明は、布巾やスポンジ等の調理・食卓用器具の洗浄機に関し、特に、食器洗浄機、食器洗浄乾燥機、又は食器乾燥機に適用可能な洗浄機に関する。   The present invention relates to a washing machine for cooking / tableware such as a cloth and a sponge, and more particularly, to a dishwasher, a dishwasher, or a washing machine applicable to a tableware dryer.

近年、食器等の洗浄・乾燥を行う機器として食器洗浄機、食器洗浄乾燥機、又は食器乾燥機が、一般にも普及している。これらの食器洗浄機、食器洗浄乾燥機、又は食器乾燥機は、食器、なべ、まな板、包丁、スプーン、フォーク等のように金属製、陶磁器製、合成樹脂製、木製等から成る一定の形状を有する調理・食卓用器具を洗浄物として扱うものとして認識されている。しかしながら、これらの機器は、キッチン又は食卓において調理器や食器類等と同時に使用されることの多い布巾やテーブルナプキン、或いはスポンジなどの不定形又は変形容易な調理・食卓用器具までを、一緒に洗浄するようには設計されておらずまたそのように認識もされていない。一般家庭では、これらの調理・食卓用器具は、洗濯の後、流し台の上方等に設けられる布巾掛けに掛けて自然乾燥されることが多い。キッチンは、必ずしも日当たりの良い位置に配置されてはいないので、一般的に湿度が高く且つ洗濯物に日光も当たらない。そのため、これらの調理・食卓用器具は乾きが遅く不衛生になり易い。更に、布巾等を洗濯物として布巾掛けに掛けた状態は、キッチンの整理が乱雑になっている印象を与え、外観を損なうことがある。   In recent years, a dishwasher, a dishwasher, or a tableware dryer is widely used as a device for cleaning and drying tableware and the like. These dishwashers, dishwashers, or tableware dryers have a certain shape made of metal, ceramic, synthetic resin, wood, etc., such as tableware, pans, cutting boards, knives, spoons, forks, etc. It is recognized that the cooking and dining utensils that it has are handled as washing items. However, these devices can be used together with utensils, table napkins, sponges, etc. that are often used at the same time as cooking utensils and tableware in the kitchen or table, and even cooking and table utensils that are easily deformed or easily deformed. It is not designed to be washed and is not recognized as such. In general households, these cooking and dining utensils are often dried naturally after washing, by hanging on a cloth stool provided above the sink. Since the kitchen is not necessarily arranged in a sunny position, it is generally humid and the laundry is not exposed to sunlight. For this reason, these cooking / dining utensils tend to dry slowly and become unsanitary. Furthermore, when a cloth cloth or the like is hung on a cloth cloth as a laundry, it may give the impression that the kitchen is messy and may impair the appearance.

これを解決するために、布巾等の洗浄物を収納することができるとともに、洗浄物である食器類と洗浄物である布巾等とを同時に且つ臭いが移りにくいように乾燥することができる食器洗浄乾燥機が開示されている(特許文献1)。この食器洗浄乾燥機によれば、第二収納室の上部には、布巾を掛けることができる布巾掛けが突設されており、下端部には水切り部が、第一収納室の排水部に接続するように設けられている。水切り部は、上端部に目皿を備えており、この目皿に第一収納室で食器類と同時に洗浄されたまな板等を載置することができる。第二収納室に収納される布巾、まな板等は、可動式のルーバーのような開かれた開閉手段及び通風口を介して第一収納室から第二収納室側に流れ込む温風により乾燥することができ、また、その際に布巾、まな板等から垂れる雫は、目皿を通して水切り部から排水することができる。

In order to solve this problem, dishwashing that can store washed items such as cloths, and can dry the washed dishes and the washed cloths at the same time so that the smell does not easily transfer. A dryer is disclosed (Patent Document 1). According to this dishwasher / dryer, the upper part of the second storage chamber is provided with a cloth stool that can hang a cloth, and a draining part is connected to the drainage part of the first storage room at the lower end. It is provided to do. The draining part is provided with an eye plate at the upper end, and a cutting board or the like that is washed simultaneously with tableware in the first storage chamber can be placed on the eye plate. The cloth cloth, cutting board, etc. stored in the second storage room are dried by warm air flowing from the first storage room to the second storage room side through an open opening / closing means such as a movable louver and a ventilation opening. In addition, the drooping drooping from the cloth, cutting board, etc. can be drained from the draining portion through the eye plate.
JP-A-6-327605 ([0019], FIGS. 1 and 2)

しかしながら、上記の形式のような布巾等の洗浄物を乾燥させる収納室を食器等の洗浄・乾燥を行う収納室と区別して設けた食器洗浄乾燥機においては、布巾等の洗浄物の乾燥時間が極めて長くなる傾向がある。また、上記の形式の食器洗浄乾燥機は、布巾等の洗浄物の洗浄能力や本体の容積効率についても、必ずしも満足のいくものではない。食器類の洗浄物と布巾等の洗浄物との両方の容積を十分に採ると、キッチンに置く食器洗浄乾燥機としては本体が大きくなり過ぎる。上記の形式の食器洗浄乾燥機では、食器洗浄乾燥機の内部に布巾かけを採用しているが布巾等の洗浄物の大きさや形態によっては洗浄乾燥が不可能となる。また、掛けられた洗浄物を乾かすために送られる風の風圧によって洗浄物の固定が不安定で落ち易くもなる。更に、上記の形式の食器洗浄乾燥機では、布巾等の洗浄物の洗浄乾燥場所が同じ庫内にないため、洗浄するための水や洗剤、温風が布巾等の洗浄物に届きにくく、効率の面で必ずしも満足し得るものではない。   However, in the tableware washing and drying machine provided with the storage room for drying the washing object such as the above-mentioned type separately from the storage room for washing and drying the tableware, the drying time of the washing object such as the cloth is It tends to be very long. Moreover, the dishwasher / dryer of the above-mentioned type is not always satisfactory with respect to the washing ability of the washing object such as the cloth and the volumetric efficiency of the main body. If the volume of both the dishes to be washed and the items to be washed, such as a cloth towel, is sufficiently large, the main body becomes too large for a dishwasher / dryer placed in the kitchen. In the dishwasher / dryer of the above-mentioned type, a cloth towel is used inside the dishwasher / dryer. However, depending on the size and form of the washing object such as the cloth cloth, the washing / drying is impossible. Further, the fixing of the cleaning object becomes unstable and easily falls due to the wind pressure of the wind sent to dry the applied cleaning object. Furthermore, the dishwasher / dryer of the above type does not have a washing / drying place for washing items such as cloths in the same cabinet, so it is difficult for water, detergents and hot air to be washed to reach the washing items such as cloths. This is not always satisfactory.

食卓用器具は、人が口にする食品や飲料を載置・収容する器具であり、細菌等の繁殖がなく最も清潔なものとして取り扱われる。包丁やまな板等の調理用器具についても同様である。更に、布巾やテーブルナプキン、スポンジ等の不定形な織物やスポンジなどの易変形な調理・食卓用器具においても、同等の清潔さをもつものとして取り扱われる場合がある。特に布巾は、殺菌によって人の臭覚でも感知できるいやな臭いが発生する場合が多くある。そこで、これらの調理・食卓用品については、清潔さを保って、洗浄、脱水、乾燥までを行う必要があるので、キッチン等で普及している食器洗浄機、食器洗浄乾燥機、又は食器乾燥機における洗浄、脱水、乾燥機能を利用して、これらの調理・食卓用品にも適用しやすくする点で解決すべき課題がある。   A table utensil is a utensil for placing and containing foods and beverages that people eat, and is treated as the cleanest without breeding bacteria. The same applies to cooking utensils such as knives and cutting boards. Furthermore, indeterminate woven fabrics such as cloths, table napkins, and sponges, and easily deformable cooking and dining utensils such as sponges may be handled as having the same cleanliness. In particular, cloths often have a bad smell that can be detected even by human sterilization due to sterilization. Therefore, since it is necessary to clean, dehydrate and dry these cooking / tableware items, it is necessary to perform cleaning, dehydration, and drying. There is a problem to be solved in terms of facilitating application to cooking and tableware using the washing, dehydration and drying functions in

本発明の目的は、上記の問題点に鑑みてなされたものであり、容積効率の高い食器洗浄機、食器洗浄乾燥機、又は食器乾燥機の庫内に適用可能として、不定形な織物やスポンジのような変形容易な調理・食卓用品の洗浄能力を高め、或いは乾燥時間を大幅に短縮することができる調理・食卓用品の洗浄機を提供することである。   The object of the present invention has been made in view of the above-described problems, and can be applied to a dishwasher, a dishwasher or a dishwasher having a high volumetric efficiency. It is an object of the present invention to provide a washing machine for cooking / tableware that can improve the cleaning ability of cooking / tableware that can be easily deformed, or can greatly shorten the drying time.

上記目的を達成するため、この発明による調理・食卓用器具の洗浄機は、不定形又は変形容易な調理・食卓用器具を収容可能な容器、及び当該容器内へ洗浄液又は濯ぎ液を供給して調理・食卓用器具を洗浄する洗浄手段を備え、食器洗浄機、食器洗浄乾燥機又は食器乾燥機にその庫内に収容される態様で適用されていることから成っている。   To achieve the above object, a washing machine for cooking / tableware according to the present invention supplies a container capable of storing an indeterminate or easily deformable cooking / tableware and a cleaning liquid or a rinsing liquid into the container. It comprises a cleaning means for cleaning utensils for cooking and dining, and is applied to a dishwasher, a dishwasher or a tableware dryer in a mode of being housed in the cabinet.

この調理・食卓用器具の洗浄機によれば、口に触れる等のことができるほどの清潔さを保つべきであるが、不定形物や変形容易なものであるために、従来、キッチン等で普及している食器洗浄機、食器洗浄乾燥機、又は食器乾燥機を利用するのが不適とされている調理・食卓用器具であっても、それらを収容可能な容器を用意し、洗浄手段が、容器内へ洗浄液又は濯ぎ液を供給して調理・食卓用器具を洗浄することで、食器洗浄機、食器洗浄乾燥機、又は食器乾燥機を利用して、少なくとも洗浄をすることができる。   According to this cooking / tableware washing machine, it should be kept clean enough to touch the mouth, but because it is irregularly shaped or easily deformed, it has traditionally been used in kitchens, etc. Even if it is a dishwasher, dishwasher, or cooking utensil that is not suitable for using a dishwasher, prepare a container that can accommodate them, and the cleaning means By washing the cooking / tableware by supplying a cleaning liquid or a rinsing liquid into the container, at least cleaning can be performed using a dishwasher, a dishwasher, or a tableware dryer.

上記の調理・食卓用器具の洗浄機において、容器は、庫内に対して着脱自在に設けることができる。調理・食卓用器具を収容する容器を庫内に対して着脱自在とすることにより、不定形又は変形容易な調理・食卓用器具を洗浄しない場合には、容器を庫内から取り外すことにより、通常の食器のような洗浄物を数多く、庫内全体を広く用い洗浄或いは乾燥させることができる。不定形又は変形容易な調理・食卓用器具を洗浄する場合には、容器を庫内に対して装着することで、通常の食器等と同時に洗浄等を行うことができる。   In the washing machine for cooking / dining utensils described above, the container can be provided detachably with respect to the interior. By making the container for storing the cooking / tableware detachable with respect to the inside of the cabinet, it is usually possible to remove the container from the cabinet when not cleaning the irregular or easily deformed cooking / tableware. There are many items to be washed such as tableware, and the entire interior can be widely used for washing or drying. When washing an indeterminate or easily deformable cooking / tableware, it is possible to perform washing or the like simultaneously with normal tableware by attaching the container to the interior.

上記の調理・食卓用器具の洗浄機において、容器は、庫内の上部に配置することができる。食器洗浄機等においては、食器等は庫内の下方に置かれることが多く、庫内の上方の空間が比較的空いているので、不定形又は変形容易な調理・食卓用器具を収容する容器については、その空いている空間を利用して配置することが好ましい。上部に設置されることにより、通常の食器等の洗浄物の洗浄がなされて油などで汚れた水が、調理・食卓用器具にかからないようにすることができる。   In the above-described cooking / tableware washing machine, the container can be placed in the upper part of the cabinet. In dishwashers, etc., tableware is often placed in the lower part of the cabinet, and since the upper space in the cabinet is relatively vacant, it is a container that accommodates cooking and tableware that are irregularly shaped or easily deformed. About, it is preferable to arrange using the vacant space. By being installed in the upper part, it is possible to prevent water that has been washed with normal washing items such as tableware and dirty with oil or the like from being applied to cooking / tableware.

上記の調理・食卓用器具の洗浄機において、容器は、庫内において保護部材で仕切られた保護スペース内に配置することが好ましい。容器側、又は通常の食器の洗浄等を扱う部分に回転等の動作がある場合には、互いの干渉を回避する必要がある。そこで、庫内を保護部材で仕切り、保護部材で仕切られた保護スペース内に容器を配置することで、両者を物理的に分離する。保護部材の壁部を格子状に構成することで、洗浄水や濯ぎ水が庫内側と容器側で出入り可能にすることが好ましい。   In the washing machine for cooking / tableware, the container is preferably arranged in a protective space partitioned by a protective member in the cabinet. When there is an operation such as rotation on the container side or a part that handles normal tableware washing or the like, it is necessary to avoid mutual interference. Therefore, the inside of the cabinet is partitioned by a protective member, and the container is disposed in a protective space partitioned by the protective member, so that the two are physically separated. It is preferable that the wall portion of the protection member is configured in a lattice shape so that washing water and rinsing water can enter and exit on the inner side and the container side.

保護部材を用いた調理・食卓用品の洗浄器においては、保護部材を庫内に着脱自在に設けることが好ましい。保護部材を庫内に着脱自在に設けることにより、容器側と庫内側とで干渉がない場合や、不定形又は変形容易な調理・食卓用器具を洗浄しない場合には、保護部材を取り外して通常の食器のような洗浄物の洗浄や乾燥を、庫内全体を広く用いて行うことができる。   In a dish / tableware washer using a protective member, the protective member is preferably detachably provided in the cabinet. If the protective member is detachably provided in the cabinet, the protective member is usually removed when there is no interference between the container side and the inside of the cabinet, or when the cooking / tableware utensils that are irregular or easily deformed are not washed. Washing and drying of a dish such as tableware can be performed using the entire interior.

上記の調理・食卓用器具の各洗浄機において、調理・食卓用器具を脱水させる脱水手段を更に備えることが好ましい。織物や発泡性の材料は、洗浄終了時には多量の水を含んでいるので、そのまま乾燥させると、エネルギーや時間を消費する。水を含んだ調理・食卓用器具を脱水することで、洗浄物の水分を短時間で取り除くことができ、乾燥工程に要するエネルギーや時間を節約することができる。   It is preferable that each washing machine for cooking / tableware further includes dehydrating means for dehydrating the cooking / tableware. Since fabrics and foamable materials contain a large amount of water at the end of washing, energy and time are consumed if they are dried as they are. By dehydrating cooking and dining utensils containing water, it is possible to remove the moisture of the washed product in a short time and save energy and time required for the drying process.

脱水手段を設けた調理・食卓用品の洗浄機において、脱水手段を籠型容器として構成された容器と籠型容器を回転させる回転手段とから構成し、調理・食卓用器具の洗浄時及び濯ぎ時には籠型容器を低速回転し、脱水時には籠型容器を高速回転させて遠心力によって調理・食卓用器具を脱水することが好ましい。脱水手段の一つとして、高速回転させて遠心力にて水分を脱水させることが考えられる。容器は籠型容器とすることにより、回転時に調理・食卓用器具を保持し、脱水した水分を籠の隙間から除去することができる。回転手段としてはモータを用いることができる。洗浄時及び濯ぎ時には籠型容器の回転の速さについては低速で十分である。   In a washing machine for cooking / tableware provided with dewatering means, the dewatering means is composed of a container configured as a bowl-shaped container and a rotating means for rotating the bowl-shaped container, and when cooking / tableware is washed and rinsed It is preferable that the bowl-shaped container is rotated at a low speed, and the bowl-shaped container is rotated at a high speed at the time of dehydration, and the cooking / tableware is dehydrated by centrifugal force.

Unlike the dirt attached to the surface of tableware, etc., the second washed product is dirt that enters the fiber or the foamed material, so it is enough to spray the washing liquid or washing water while it is stationary. Can not drop. About the 2nd wash thing from which these methods of adhesion of dirt differ, it is necessary to store in another container, and to remove dirt by the point of a washing machine, etc.

食器洗浄乾燥機1においては、本体2の内部の上方角部2aに、第2洗浄物を収容するための容器としての収容ドラム5が配設されている。収容ドラム5は、網状の籠のような壁面で構成され手前端が開口している円筒形状の胴部6と、胴部6の開口部を閉鎖可能な蓋部7と、蓋部7の中心位置に突出している支持部8と、胴部6の閉じている底端部9と、底端部9から一体的に後方に突出する回転軸10とを備えた籠型容器であり、胴部6の内部に第2洗浄物を収納することができる。収容ドラム5は、本体2内において、その回転軸が本体2の前方から後方に向かう水平線上になるように配置される。収容ドラム5を回転駆動するため、本体2の開閉扉3とは反対側の収容ドラム5に対応する奥壁部11にモータ12が収容されている。収容ドラム5は、回転軸10をモータ12の出力部に対して着脱可能である。本体2から取り出した収容ドラム5に第2洗浄物を収容し、第2洗浄物を収容した収容ドラム5を本体2の上方角部2aにおいて回転軸10をモータ12の出力部に結合させることで、収容ドラム5が第1洗浄・乾燥室4内にセットされる。開閉扉3には、開閉扉3の閉じ状態において、蓋部7に適合可能な凹部13と、凹部13の中心部で蓋部7の支持部8を収容・支持可能な支持凹部14が形成されている。収容ドラム5が第1洗浄・乾燥室4内にセットして開閉扉3を閉じた状態では、収容ドラム5は、蓋部7の支持部8が開閉扉3に支持される。   In the dishwasher / dryer 1, an accommodation drum 5 as a container for accommodating the second washed item is disposed in the upper corner 2 a inside the main body 2. The receiving drum 5 is formed of a wall surface such as a net-like ridge and has a cylindrical body portion 6 having an open front end, a lid portion 7 capable of closing the opening portion of the body portion 6, and the center of the lid portion 7. It is a bowl-shaped container provided with a support part 8 projecting in position, a bottom end part 9 closed of the body part 6, and a rotating shaft 10 integrally projecting rearward from the bottom end part 9, The second cleaning object can be stored in the interior of 6. The housing drum 5 is arranged in the main body 2 such that the rotation axis thereof is on a horizontal line from the front to the rear of the main body 2. In order to rotationally drive the housing drum 5, a motor 12 is housed in a back wall portion 11 corresponding to the housing drum 5 on the opposite side of the opening / closing door 3 of the main body 2. The housing drum 5 can attach and detach the rotary shaft 10 to and from the output portion of the motor 12. By storing the second cleaning product in the storage drum 5 taken out from the main body 2, the rotary drum 10 is coupled to the output portion of the motor 12 at the upper corner 2 a of the main body 2. The accommodation drum 5 is set in the first cleaning / drying chamber 4. The opening / closing door 3 is formed with a recessed portion 13 that can be fitted to the lid portion 7 in the closed state of the opening / closing door 3 and a supporting recessed portion 14 that can accommodate and support the support portion 8 of the lid portion 7 at the center of the recessed portion 13. ing. In a state where the storage drum 5 is set in the first cleaning / drying chamber 4 and the door 3 is closed, the support portion 8 of the lid portion 7 is supported by the door 3 in the storage drum 5.

本体2には、装着された収容ドラム5の外側を覆う保護部材としての網状の保護ボックス15が着脱可能に設けられている。保護ボックス15は、食器等の第1被洗浄物と、回転駆動される収容ドラム5とが互いに接触しないように、内部に保護スペースを形成する構成となっている。保護ボックス15の本体2へ固定されない1角部分は収容ドラム5に沿う曲面構造で構成しておけば、保護ボックス15と第1被洗浄物とが接触しにくくなるだけでなく、固定する他の3箇所の角部との差別化ができ、保護ボックス15を本体2にセットするときに取り付け易くなるという特別の効果を得ることができる。   The main body 2 is detachably provided with a net-like protective box 15 as a protective member that covers the outer side of the mounted accommodation drum 5. The protective box 15 is configured to form a protective space inside so that the first object to be cleaned such as tableware and the receiving drum 5 that is rotationally driven do not contact each other. If the corner portion of the protective box 15 that is not fixed to the main body 2 has a curved surface structure along the receiving drum 5, not only does the protective box 15 and the first object to be cleaned not easily come into contact with each other, but also other fixed portions. It is possible to differentiate from the three corners, and to obtain a special effect that it is easy to attach when the protective box 15 is set on the main body 2.

本実施形態の食器洗浄乾燥機1に設けられる第1洗浄手段は、殺菌作用を呈する物質を第1洗浄物及び第2洗浄物に作用させることができる。例えば、銀を電気分解することによりAgイオンを生成し、Agイオンを含んだ水にて第1洗浄物及び第2洗浄物を洗浄するように構成されている。このため、第1洗浄物及び第2洗浄物に付着している雑菌等の微生物を除菌することができる。その他、殺菌性を備えた物質としては、洗浄液や濯ぎ液の場合には、塩素系、次亜塩素系等の公知のものを用いることができる。次亜塩素酸は、食塩水を電気分解することで得るものが利用し易い。 The 1st washing | cleaning means provided in the tableware washing dryer 1 of this embodiment can make the substance which exhibits a bactericidal action act on a 1st washing | cleaning material and a 2nd washing | cleaning material. For example, Ag + ions are generated by electrolyzing silver, and the first and second cleaning objects are cleaned with water containing Ag + ions. For this reason, microorganisms, such as various bacteria adhering to the 1st washing thing and the 2nd washing thing, can be sterilized. In addition, as the substance having bactericidal properties, in the case of a cleaning liquid or a rinsing liquid, known substances such as chlorine-based and hypochlorous-based substances can be used. Hypochlorous acid can be easily obtained by electrolyzing saline.

食器洗浄乾燥機1の本体2の内部に形成される第1洗浄・乾燥室4に、食器等の第1洗浄物、例えば食器洗い用洗剤を入れ、保護スペース内部に布巾等の第2洗浄物を入れた収容ドラム5を装填して、開閉扉を3閉塞する。食器洗浄乾燥機1の外部に施された洗浄開始スイッチ(図示せず)を押すと、第1洗浄物及び第2洗浄物の洗浄が開始される。食器洗浄乾燥機1が動作すると、第1洗浄手段が駆動して食器等の第1洗浄物が洗浄される。同時に、収容ドラム5が支持凹部14に支持された状態で低速回転する。このとき、保護ボックス15は網状の構造であり且つ収容ドラム5も網状の籠のような構造であるので、第1洗浄手段の洗浄効果は、収容ドラム5内部の第2被洗浄物の洗浄にも及ぶ。収容ドラム5は低速回転で回転するので、収容ドラム5内部の第2被洗浄物は収容ドラム5の回転に合わせて回転運動し、そのため適切にほぐされ、均一に洗浄される。   The first washing / drying chamber 4 formed inside the main body 2 of the dishwasher / dryer 1 is filled with a first washing item such as tableware, for example, a dishwashing detergent, and a second washing item such as a cloth is placed inside the protective space. The containing storage drum 5 is loaded, and the open / close door is closed by 3. When a washing start switch (not shown) provided outside the dishwasher 1 is pressed, washing of the first and second washing items is started. When the dishwasher / dryer 1 operates, the first washing means is driven to wash the first washing item such as tableware. At the same time, the storage drum 5 rotates at a low speed while being supported by the support recess 14. At this time, since the protective box 15 has a net-like structure and the storage drum 5 has a net-like structure, the cleaning effect of the first cleaning means is the cleaning of the second object to be cleaned inside the storage drum 5. It also extends. Since the storage drum 5 rotates at a low speed, the second object to be cleaned in the storage drum 5 rotates according to the rotation of the storage drum 5, so that it is appropriately loosened and cleaned uniformly.

第1洗浄物及び第2洗浄物の洗浄が終了すると、続いて第1洗浄物の濯ぎが開始される。このとき、第1洗浄手段の濯ぎ効果は、洗浄の場合と同様に、低速回転で回転する収容ドラム5内部の第2洗浄物の濯ぎにも及ぶ。このとき、第1洗浄物及び第2洗浄物は、例えばAgイオンを含んだ水によって濯がれる。また、収容ドラム5は低速回転で回転するので、収容ドラム5内部の第2洗浄物は均一に濯がれる。 When the cleaning of the first cleaning object and the second cleaning object is completed, rinsing of the first cleaning object is subsequently started. At this time, the rinsing effect of the first cleaning means extends to the rinsing of the second cleaning object inside the storage drum 5 that rotates at a low speed as in the case of cleaning. At this time, the 1st washing thing and the 2nd washing thing are rinsed, for example with water containing Ag + ion. Further, since the storage drum 5 rotates at a low speed, the second cleaning item inside the storage drum 5 is rinsed uniformly.

第1洗浄物及び第2洗浄物の濯ぎが完了すると、第1乾燥手段が動作する。同時に、収容ドラム5が高速回転で回転する。第1脱水手段は、収容ドラムの回転数が異なる以外は、回転実質的に第1洗浄手段と構造を兼ねている。収容ドラム5内部の第2洗浄物は高速回転して遠心力により脱水される。第2洗浄物の脱水が完了すると、収容ドラム5は再び低速回転にて回転する。これにより、第2洗浄物は、ほぐされながら第1乾燥手段により弱乾燥される。第1乾燥手段は、詳細には図示しないが、例えば、特開2002−306395号公報において記載されているように、第1洗浄・乾燥室4とは隔壁で区分されたスペースに配置される送風モータと、その送風モータで回転される送風ファンと、送風ファンからの風を第1洗浄・乾燥室4に導入する送風ダクトと、送風ダクトから第1洗浄・乾燥室4に向かって吹き出される途中に送風を加温させるヒータとを有する構造とすることができる。   When rinsing of the first and second cleaning items is completed, the first drying means operates. At the same time, the receiving drum 5 rotates at a high speed. The first dehydrating means rotates and substantially serves as the structure of the first cleaning means except that the rotational speed of the receiving drum is different. The 2nd washing | cleaning thing inside the accommodation drum 5 rotates at high speed, and is spin-dry | dehydrated with a centrifugal force. When the dehydration of the second cleaning object is completed, the storage drum 5 rotates again at a low speed. Thereby, the second washed product is weakly dried by the first drying means while being loosened. Although not shown in detail in the first drying means, for example, as described in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2002-306395, the first drying unit is arranged in a space separated from the first cleaning / drying chamber 4 by a partition wall. A motor, a blower fan rotated by the blower motor, a blower duct for introducing the wind from the blower fan into the first cleaning / drying chamber 4, and the blower duct is blown out toward the first cleaning / drying chamber 4. It can be set as the structure which has a heater which heats ventilation in the middle.

保護ボックス15は本体2に対して着脱可能に構成されているので、第2洗浄物を洗浄せず第1洗浄物のみを洗浄する場合には、収容ドラム5と保護ボックス15とを食器洗浄乾燥機1の庫内から取り外すことが好ましい。モータ12の出力部は適当な蓋材で本体2の第1洗浄・乾燥室4から隔離される。その際には、モータは回転駆動しない。庫内には、収容ドラム5が取り付けられないので、庫内の第1洗浄・乾燥室4を広く取ることができる。   Since the protective box 15 is configured to be detachable from the main body 2, when the second washed item is not washed and only the first washed item is washed, the storage drum 5 and the protective box 15 are washed and dried. It is preferable to remove from the inside of the machine 1. The output portion of the motor 12 is isolated from the first cleaning / drying chamber 4 of the main body 2 by an appropriate lid. At that time, the motor is not rotationally driven. Since the storage drum 5 is not attached in the chamber, the first cleaning / drying chamber 4 in the chamber can be widened.

食器洗浄乾燥機1によると、これまで人が行っていた、布巾などを手で1枚1枚石鹸を付けてもみ洗いし、水道水を流しながら濯いで干すといった作業を、布巾やスポンジ等の不定形物や変形容易な第2洗浄物を入れた収容ドラム5を食器洗浄乾燥機1の内部にセットするだけで行うことができる。即ち、食器洗浄乾燥機1に設けられた第1洗浄手段、第1乾燥手段等により、洗浄、濯ぎ、脱水、乾燥が自動的に行われる。その結果、洗浄に要する時間と労力が軽減されるだけでなく、水、電気代やガス代といったエネルギー資源の節約が可能となるため、地球環境にやさしい食器洗浄乾燥機を得ることができる。   According to the dishwasher / dryer 1, the work that has been done by humans, such as washing the cloths by hand with soap one by one, rinsing them with running tap water, and drying them, can be done with a cloth cloth or sponge. This can be done by simply setting the storage drum 5 containing the irregular shaped material or the easily deformable second washed material in the dishwasher 1. That is, washing, rinsing, dehydration and drying are automatically performed by the first washing means, the first drying means and the like provided in the tableware washing / drying machine 1. As a result, not only can the time and labor required for washing be reduced, but also energy resources such as water, electricity and gas can be saved, so that a dishwasher / dryer that is friendly to the global environment can be obtained.

〈第2の実施形態〉
次に、本発明による調理・食卓用器具の洗浄・乾燥装置の第2実施形態について説明する。図5は第2実施形態が適用された食器洗浄乾燥機の概要を示す斜視図、図6は図5に示す食器洗浄乾燥機の概要を別の角度から見た一部を破断して示す斜視図である。図5及び図6に示す食器洗浄乾燥機については、前述の図1、図2に示す第1実施形態と同様の部分には同一の符号を付すことで再度の詳細な説明を省略する。第2実施形態として示す食器洗浄乾燥機20は、第1実施形態として示した食器洗浄乾燥機1に対して、第2洗浄物専用の洗浄手段である第2洗浄手段21と、第2洗浄物専用の乾燥手段である第2乾燥手段22とを更に備えている。なお、第2洗浄手段21、第2乾燥手段22は、収容ドラム5のごく近傍に設置される、洗浄液や乾燥空気を吹き出す最終段の部分のみを示しており、供給源や途中の供給通路の図示は省略されている。その他の部分は第1実施形態と同一である。
<Second Embodiment>
Next, a second embodiment of the cleaning / drying apparatus for cooking / tableware according to the present invention will be described. FIG. 5 is a perspective view showing an outline of a dishwasher / dryer to which the second embodiment is applied, and FIG. 6 is a perspective view showing a part of the outline of the dishwasher / dryer shown in FIG. FIG.
