KITCHEN CONSTRUCTION.

Application filed January 14, 1924. Serial No. 686,180.

The object of this invention is to provide a kitchen, the parts of which are so designed as to involve the minimum amount of labor on the part of the housekeeper and to reduce the operative cost.

Another object'of the invention is to improve the construction of the various objects in the kitchen for increasing the comfort of the housekeeper as well as reducing her work.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in. the appended claims.

In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which Figure 1 is a View of one side of the kitchen.

Figure 2 is a view of the opposite side thereof.

' side, the fronts of these arts bein Figure 3 is a view of the stove.

Figure 4 is a view of the cupboards arranged above the sink.

Figure 5 is a'view of the sink and its associatedparts.

Figure 6 is a view of the pan cupboard.

Figure 7 is a view of the kitchen'cabinet.

Figure 8 is a sectional view through one of the doors-of the kitchen cabinet showing the containers therein.

Figure 9 is a sectional view through one of these containers.

Figure 10 is a sectional detail view through the oven. f

As shown in Fi res -1 and 2, the stove 1, the service cup oard and .the pan cu board 3 are arranged at one side of t e kitchen, whileAzhe sink 4 and. the kitchen cabinet 5 are arran ed at another side thereof. Of course, thls is a matter of choice, as the articles of furniture can be arranged, as desired. L

The stove has the oven 6 arranged at the top thereof with a fireless cooker 7 at one side and 'a steam cook'er 8 at the op osite 1n the same plane and'spaced mm the ront of the stove so that this front forms a working space for the food and material to be placed in the oven or the fireless cooker or. the

steamer. This front isalso the cooking space and is provided with the usual grid covered holes 9. The heating means are located under there grids and such means may be either electricor gas. The front of the stove extends down to the floor, as shown at 10, so

that dirt and the like cannot get under the stove and this reduces the floor space to be cleaned. The stove may be provided with drawers 11 for containing "various articles used in connectiqlilwith the stove and I prefer to make they-food receiving members of the fireless cooker and the steamer in the shape of drawers, as shown at 12, to facilitate the placing of food in these parts and its removal therefrom. These drawers are located under the heating means.

As will be seen the movable parts of'the fireless cooker and the steamer can be pulled out until they rest upon the stove so that their heating elements can be heated by the stove. .The door 6 of the oven is slidably arranged, as shown in Figures 1 and 10.

The service cupboard 2 has glass doors,

as shown at 13, for the upper compartments, these compartments having shelves as usual. These compartments are spaced from the work top 14 and drawers 15 are arranged below the work top. The space below these drawers -is framed out, as shown at 16, so as to reduce floor space.

The pan cupboard 3 is made somewhat similar to the service cu board but instead of having 'a plurality of drawers 15 under the work table 14 a space, closed by a single door 17, is formed for receiving pots, pans and the like. The lower part of this cupboard is also framed out, as at 18.

The kitchen cabinet 5 is also made similar to the cupboards and a motor is associated with this cabinet. This motor has a flexible shaft 21 and a plurality of tools may be provided for the motor for doing various kinds of work, .such as grinding coflee, beatin e gs, peeling potatoes and the like. This itc en cabinet has its 7 lower' part framed out,- as at 22, to save floor space and receptacles 23 may be provided in the cabinet for containing various ingredients, each receptacle havin a spout 24 associated therewith, each 0 ate having a slide 24" for tops 26 so that dust collecting thereon can be easilymopped oil. The work or-table tops can be'made so that they can be adjusted and by having all the compartments provided with glass doors the contents can be seen witliout opening the doors. The top shelves are so placed so that they can be reached by a person standing on the floor, thus doing away with ladder, and there are no shelves at a low level, thus rendering it unnecessa for persons to stoop over to reach artic es placed on low shelves. By having the lower parts of the devices framed out the floor space to be cleaned is reduced as is also the cost of covering material.

The sink 4 is formed with a arba e r"e ceiving chamber 27 which has a rain oard 28 forming the top therefor and a small drain board 29 is arranged at one side of the board 28. This board 29 can be used for cleaning fish, vegetables and the like. The dish washing chamber 30 is arranged at the opposite side of the sink and a drain board 31 is placed above the same. Cup boards 32 may be placed above the sink for holding soap, pow ers and the like as well as dishes.

From the foregoing it will be seen that cookin and cleaning operations ma be carrie out in this form of kitchenwitli the least possible effort on the part of the housekeeper and duced to a minimum. The dish washing compartment 30 can be supplied with hot water by a faucet, as shown in Figure 2, and this com artment drains into the waste of the sink. The cabithe use of a step-- the operative cost will be renet 5v is provided with a compartment 33 for receiving cofiee and a grinder 34 is arranged below the compartment and is adapted to be connected with the shaft 21 of the motor 20 when the coffee is to be ground. A graduate receptacle 35 is detachably connected with the grinder to receive the ground coffee. By arranging the receptacles 23 in the doors of the cabinet, as shown in Figure 8, the contents of said receptacles can be taken therefrom without opening the doors and by forming windows in the doors and making the containers of trans arent material the amount of material in t e containers can be observed.

It is thought from the foregoin description that the advanta es and nova? features of my invention will e readil apparent.

I desire it to be understo that I may make changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changesfall within the scope of the appended claim.

What I claim is A- kitchen comprising a oven at the top thereof s aced from the front, a steamer on one si e of the oven, a fireless cooker at the opposite side thereof, the fronts of said arts being in alignment and the front of t e stove projecting forward therefrom to form a worktable and stove having an cooking top with grid covered holes and drawers in the front of the stove.

In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
