Thereby, the rotational driving force generated by the motor 11 can be transmitted to the driving side coupling 15 via the small pulley 12, the belt 13 and the large pulley 14. Further, due to the transmission of the rotational driving force by the small pulley 12, the belt 13 and the large pulley 14, the rotational speed of the drive side coupling 15 becomes slower than the rotational speed of the rotational shaft 11 a of the motor 11. The ratio of the rotational speed of the drive side coupling 15 to the rotational speed of the rotating shaft 11a of the motor 11 can be adjusted by changing the sizes of the small pulley 12 and the large pulley 14.

Here, one end of the rotating arm 6 is pivotally supported by the second frame 17. Thereby, the rotation arm 6 can be in an upright state substantially parallel to the rotation axis of the rotating body 9 and a lying state substantially perpendicular to the rotation axis of the rotating body 9. In other words, the rotating arm 6 can take a standing state and a lying state with respect to the rotating surface of the rotating body 9. In the above standing state, one end of the pivoting arm 6, while in contact with the first electromotive standing stopper 20a which is a part of the housing portion 20, the other end of the pivot arm 6, the inner bowl 2 adjacent the bottom Located in. Meanwhile, in the inclined state, the one end of the pivoting arm 6, with a gap between the raised stand stopper 20a, while the raised stand stopper 20a not in contact with, the other end of the pivot arm 6 Then, it comes into contact with a lodging stopper 21a which is a part of the second accommodating portion 21. Incidentally, causing standing stopper 20a and lodging stopper 21a may be formed, for example, heat-resistant elastic material. The first and second transmission shafts 18 and 19 are an example of a part of the drive mechanism of the present invention.

  Further, a control unit 22 that controls induction heating by the induction coil 4 and rotational driving force by the motor 11 is disposed in the space between the outer case 10 and the inner case.

  In FIG. 1, 41 is a lid heater, and 42 is a horizontal heater. The lid heater 41 and the lateral heater 42 are examples of the heating unit.

  FIG. 2 is a schematic view of the first and second transmission shafts 18 and 19 and the rotating arm 6 as viewed obliquely from above.

  The first transmission shaft 18 is rotatable with respect to the first and second frame bodies 16 and 17. A driven side coupling 23 is integrally provided at one end of the first transmission shaft 18. A first miter gear 24 is integrally provided at the center of the first transmission shaft 18. The first miter gear 24 is an example of a part of the drive mechanism of the present invention.

The driven-side coupling 23 has a shape capable of fitting into the drive dynamic side coupling 15. Further, the upper surface (surface on the outer lid 7 side) of the driven side coupling 23 is provided with unevenness that meshes with the unevenness of the inner surface of the drive shaft side coupling 15.

  A second miter gear 25 that meshes with the first miter gear 24 is integrally provided at one end of the second transmission shaft 19. On the other hand, a third miter gear 26 that meshes with the fourth miter gear 27 is integrally provided at the other end of the second transmission shaft 19. The fourth miter gear 27 is fixed to one end portion of the rotation shaft 28. The second to fourth miter gears 25 to 27 and the rotation shaft 28 are examples of a part of the drive mechanism of the present invention.

  The central portion of the rotation shaft 28 is detachably fitted into a notch 6 a provided at one end of the rotation arm 6. Accordingly, when the rotation shaft 28 rotates, the rotation arm 6 rotates about the rotation shaft 28. That is, the rotating arm 6 is rotated with the rotation of the rotating shaft 28.

In the state of FIG. 3, when the first miter gear 24 rotates in the direction of arrow R, the second miter gear 25, the third miter gear 26, and the fourth miter gear 27 also move with respect to the second frame 17. The rotating arm 6 rotates in a direction in which the other end of the rotating arm 6 is separated from the second frame 17. While the rotating arm 6 is rotating, the rotating body 9 is stationary with respect to the inner lid 8. Thereafter, as shown in FIG. 4, by the end of the pivoting arm 6 abuts against the raised stand stopper 20a, stops the rotation of the rotary arm 6, the second miter gear 25, the third miter gears 26 and the fourth miter gear 27 cannot rotate with respect to the second frame 17. When the first transmission shaft 18 rotates in the arrow R direction in this state, the rotating body 9 rotates in the arrow R direction with respect to the inner lid 8. At this time, the rotating arm 6 is rotated integrally with the left rotary member 9 of the force standing state.

  In the state of FIG. 4, when the first miter gear 24 rotates in the direction of the arrow L, the second miter gear 25, the third miter gear 26, and the fourth miter gear 27 also move with respect to the second frame 17. The rotation arm 6 rotates in a direction in which the other end of the rotation arm 6 approaches the second frame body 17. While the rotating arm 6 is rotating, the rotating body 9 is stationary with respect to the inner lid 8. Thereafter, as shown in FIG. 3, the other end of the rotating arm 6 abuts against the overturning stopper 21 a, whereby the rotation of the rotating arm 6 is stopped, and the second miter gear 25 and the third miter gear are stopped. 26 and the fourth miter gear 27 cannot rotate with respect to the second frame 17. In this state, when the first transmission shaft 18 rotates in the arrow L direction, the rotating body 9 rotates in the arrow L direction with respect to the inner lid 8. At this time, the rotating arm 6 rotates integrally with the rotating body 9 in a lying state.

  FIG. 5 is a schematic view of the inner lid 8 and the rotating body 9 removed from the outer lid 7 when viewed obliquely from below. In addition, in FIG. 5, illustration of the said steam hole is abbreviate | omitted.

  The rotating body 9 basically has a structure in which water does not enter with a sealing material such as an O-ring, and can be separated from the inner lid 8 so as to be easily cleaned. Further, in order to improve the cleanability, a non-adhesive process (for example, a fluorine coating process) is performed on the outer surface of the rotating body 9. Further, the same non-adhesive treatment as that of the outer surface of the rotating body 9 is applied to the inner surface of the rotating body 9. Thereby, the washing | cleaning property inside the rotary body 9 is also high.

  In addition, a part of the rotating arm 6 in a lying state protrudes from the surface of the rotating body 9 on the inner pot 2 side.

  In addition, 8b of FIG. 5 is an insertion hole. The driven side coupling 23 is inserted through the insertion hole 8b.

FIG. 6 is a schematic view of the state in which the rotating arm 6 is removed from the state of FIG. 5 as viewed obliquely from above. In addition, in FIG. 6, illustration of the said steam hole is abbreviate | omitted.

  Since the rotation arm 6 is connected to the rotation shaft 28 by fitting the central portion of the rotation shaft 28 into the notch 6a, the rotation arm 6 is parallel to the rotation axis of the rotating body 9 in the lying state. If it is moved in the direction and away from the rotating body 9, it can be easily detached from the rotating body 9. Thereby, the washing | cleaning property of the rotation arm 6 can also be performed now easily. Further, a heat-resistant resin (for example, POM (polyacetal) or fluorine-based resin) is used as the material of the rotating arm 6.

  FIG. 7 is a schematic view of a cross section of the rotating body 9 taken along a plane including the rotation axis.

  The surface of the rotating body 9 on the inner pot 2 side includes a plurality of umbrella-shaped tapered surfaces. More specifically, on the surface of the rotating body 9 on the inner pan 2 side, an annular first inclined surface 29 corresponding to a concave conical surface, and a radially outer side than the first inclined surface 29, A second inclined surface 30 corresponding to a part of the concave conical surface, and an annular third inclined surface that is located radially outward from the second inclined surface 30 and corresponds to a part of the concave conical surface The surface 31 is formed. The first inclined surface 29, the second inclined surface 30, and the third inclined surface 31 have substantially the same inclination angle. In addition, the 1st-3rd inclined surfaces 29-31 are examples of the end spreading surface of this invention.

  Further, on the surface of the rotating body 9 on the inner pot 2 side, annular first and second step portions 32 and 33 are formed substantially concentrically with the outer peripheral edge of the rotating body 9. The first step portion 32 is located on the radially inner side than the second step portion 33.

According to the rice cooker having the above configuration, the rotating arm 6 is rotated by rotating the first miter gear 24 in the direction of arrow R by the rotational power of the motor 11 in the state of FIG. it is possible to cause the falling state, such as. Then, further, by rotating the first miter gear 24 by the rotation power of the motor 11 in the direction of arrow R, it is possible to rotate the pivot arm 6 of the raised stand state together with the rotation body 9, the rotation such as rice of the inner pot in 2 in rotation arm 6 electromotive standing state and that the water was stirred, allows sufficient washed rice.

  In the state of FIG. 4, when the first miter gear 24 is rotated in the direction of the arrow L by the rotational power of the motor 11, the rotating arm 6 is rotated to be in a lying state as shown in FIG. 3. When the lid 3 is opened, the pivot arm 6 is not caught, so that the lid 3 can be easily opened. Therefore, the rotation arm 6 can be prevented from obstructing the opening of the lid 3.

  Further, although there is one motor 11, the single motor 11 can rotate the rotating arm 6 and rotate the rotating arm 6 and the rotating body 9. Therefore, the lid 3 can be made smaller than the case where the rotation motor for the rotation arm 6 and the rotation motor for the rotation arm 6 and the rotation body 9 are separately provided. As a result, the height of the rice cooker can be reduced.

  Moreover, the inner pot 2 is stirred by, for example, rice and water in the inner pot 2 in the preheating process (operation in which the temperature in the inner pot 2 is set to about 60 ° C.) during the rice cooking, for example. The temperature inside can be made uniform. As a result, the water supply unevenness of the rice can be prevented, and the temperature zone (around about 60 ° C.) in which the saccharifying enzyme actively acts in the inner pot 2 increases, so that an effect of increasing the total sugar can be obtained.

  In addition, in the start-up process performed next to the preheating process, starch gelatinization starts, and stirring is excellent, such as excessively increasing the viscosity of the rice cooking liquid or deteriorating heat transfer in the inner pot 2. The opposite effect of cooking rice. Therefore, before the start-up step, the first miter gear 24 is rotated in the direction of the arrow L by the rotational power of the motor 11 to rotate the rotating arm 6 to be in a lying state.

  And if the said rotation arm 6 will be in a lying state, you may stop the motor 11, but as a means for obtaining further delicious rice, the drive of the motor 11 is continued and the turning arm in the lying state is continued. 6 is rotated integrally with the rotating body 9. If it does so, the viscous material adhering to the said 1st inclined surface 29, the 2nd inclined surface 30, and the 3rd inclined surface 31 will receive centrifugal force, will fall, and will return in the inner pot 2. FIG. As a result, the alpha conversion of the rice in the inner pot 2 is promoted, and delicious rice with a large amount of umami components can be obtained.

Note that the basic driving method and the control method of the fallen state and the standing state of the first and second rotating arms 206A and 206B are the same as those in the above embodiment, and therefore will be omitted. The transmission shaft 218 is an example of a part of the drive mechanism.

  As described above, since the surface of the rotating body 209 on the inner pot 2 side is uneven, when the rotating body 209 rotates, the viscous bubbles are physically destroyed on the surface of the rotating body 209 on the inner pot 2 side. Can suppress the spilling of mucus.

  In the said embodiment, although the inner pot 2 was induction-heated, you may make it carry out resistance heating of the inner pot 2, for example. In this case, instead of the induction coil 4, a resistance heater may be used as an example of the heating unit of the present invention.

In the said embodiment, when the bubble is produced with the liquid in the inner pot 2 , the control part 22 may control the motor 11 etc. so that the rotary body 9 may rotate.

In the said embodiment, you may make it the control part 22 control the motor 11 etc. so that the rotary body 9 may rotate in the process (for example, start-up process or boiling maintenance process) of boiling the water in the inner pot 2. . At this time, the control part 22 may determine whether it became the process of boiling the water in the inner pot 2 based on the time preset from the start of rice cooking, or a temperature sensor. The determination may be made based on the output of 5.

  In the said embodiment, when the control part 22 judges that the temperature of the inner pot exceeds 100 degreeC using the temperature sensor 5, it controls the motor 11 etc. so that the rotary body 9 may rotate. Also good.

  In the above embodiment, the control unit 22 may control the motor 11 and the like so that the number of rotations of the rotating body 9 changes according to the output of the induction coil 4 and the like.

  Hereinafter, an example of the control performed by the control unit 22 will be described.

  FIG. 13: is a graph which shows the time change of the detected temperature of the temperature sensor 5 from the said rice cooker starting rice cooking to a steaming process. Moreover, FIG. 14 is a graph which shows the time change of the input electric power of the induction coil 4 from the said rice cooker starting rice cooking to a steaming process. Moreover, FIG. 15 is a graph which shows the time change of ON / OFF of the motor 11 from the said rice cooker starting rice cooking to a steaming process.

  As shown in FIGS. 13-15, the rotary body 9 is driven at the end of a preheating process, and the inside of the inner pot 2 is stirred uniformly. Immediately after that, when the input power of the induction coil 4 is 1300 W which is the maximum, the power is also input to the lid heater 41 and the lateral heater 42 and the inner pot 2 is heated with the maximum output of 1400 W in total, and the preheating process is completed. And start the startup process.

  When the start-up process is entered, in order to rapidly increase the temperature in the inner pot 2, the input power of the induction coil 4 is set to about 1000 W, and at the same time, the power is input to the lid heater 41 and the lateral heater 42, If the temperature of 2 reaches the boiling temperature of water, it will move to a boiling maintenance process.

  In the boiling maintenance step, the temperature of the inner pot 2 is raised to 100 ° C. or higher. At this time, the amount of water in the inner pot 2 is reduced, and a viscous viscosity is easily generated. Therefore, when a preset time has elapsed from the start of the boiling maintenance process or when the temperature of the inner pot 2 reaches a preset temperature, the motor 11 is turned on and the rotating body 9 is set at 400 rpm, for example. Rotate. Thereby, while being able to return the sticky adhering to the 1st inclined surface 29 of the rotary body 9, the 2nd inclined surface 30, and the 3rd inclined surface 31 in the inner pot 2 with a centrifugal force, it is the rotation state of a fallen state. The sticky bubbles can be physically destroyed by a part of the moving arm 6 to suppress the sticky spill.

  On the other hand, in the conventional rice cooker, the amount of heating of the inner pot was reduced, and the amount of viscosity generated was suppressed, thereby preventing the viscosity of the gum from flowing out from the steam port provided on the lower surface of the inner lid. In addition, in other conventional rice cookers, a thickening portion is provided on the upper side of the inner lid, and the amount of stickiness is detected while accumulating the viscosity in this thickening portion to limit the heating amount of the inner pot. It was.

  That is, the rice cooker of this embodiment does not need to perform the reduction or restriction | limiting of a heating amount as mentioned above in a boiling maintenance process.

  Moreover, in the rice cooker of this embodiment, it is induced from about 25 minutes when the temperature of the inner pot 2 is rapidly increased to about 38 minutes when the temperature of the rice exceeds 100 ° C. and the water in the inner pot 2 is almost eliminated. Rice cooking can be performed while the input power of the coil 4 is kept high.

  Moreover, by performing rice cooking with such a high thermal power, the convection of the rice and water in the inner pot 2 is promoted, and uniform heating becomes possible. As a result, since the pre-gelatinization of the whole rice in the inner pot 2 can be promoted, delicious rice can be cooked.

  Moreover, generation | occurrence | production of mucilage itself can be accelerated | stimulated by keeping such high heat power. At this time, as described above, the mucus adhering to the first inclined surface 29, the second inclined surface 30 and the third inclined surface 31 of the rotating body 9 is returned into the inner pot 2 by centrifugal force, and the rice Since it is possible to re-adhere the sticky water, it is possible to easily form a water retaining film on the rice surface. Therefore, the surface gloss of the cooked rice can be improved, and cooked rice that looks delicious can be cooked.

  Moreover, since the sticky can be returned into the inner pot 2 by the rotation of the rotating body 9, the sticky can be returned to the entire rice surface in the inner pot 2 and the finish of the whole rice surface is made uniform. be able to.

  Moreover, compared with the other conventional rice cookers provided with the above-mentioned mucus reservoir, the mucilage, which is starchy material containing nutrition and umami, can be returned to the inner pot 2, leaving no nutrition and umami. It can be returned to the rice.

  Moreover, in the said embodiment, it is made for the control part 22 to have a memory | storage part which memorize | stores the control program for controlling the induction coil 4 and the motor 11 in order to put fruit etc. in the inner pot 2 and to make jam. Also good. By doing this, it is possible to destroy the bubbles of the fruits that are generated when making jam, as well as the musk cutting in cooking rice, heating can be promoted without reducing the heating power, cooking time Shortening is possible.

  Although specific embodiments of the present invention have been described above, the present invention is not limited to the above-described embodiments, and various modifications can be made within the scope of the present invention. For example, a configuration in which the rotating arm 6 is eliminated in the above embodiment may be an embodiment of the present invention. In this case, even if the rice cannot be washed, it is possible to return the sticky into the inner pot 2 or destroy the sticky bubbles by rotating the rotating body 9.

  For example, when people who live in high places such as Mt. Fuji and Everest use the heating cooker of the present invention, in the place where they live, even if the object to be heated does not reach 100 ° C, it boils. The control unit may control the drive mechanism so that the rotating body rotates when bubbles are generated from the object to be heated. In this case, the control unit may determine that bubbles are generated from the heated object when a preset time has elapsed since the heating of the heated object started. Alternatively, the temperature of the inner pot may be detected by a temperature sensor, and when the temperature of the inner pot reaches a preset temperature, it may be determined that bubbles are generated from the object to be heated. .
