STEAM -COOKER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 397,687, dated February 12, 1889.

. Application filed May 26, 1888.

Serial No. 275,151. (No model.)

To aZZ whom, it may concern.-

Be it known that I, WINFIELD E. Bnvna IDGE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Baltimore, in the State of Maryland, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Steam-Cookers, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to an improved steamcooker for domestic use of that class which comprises a boiler and several separate vessels sitting one upon the other on the boiler.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a vertical section of the cooker. Fig. 2 is a top view of the upper vessel, the cover of which is removed. view of one vessel. Fig. 4 is a side View in which the wall of the vessel is broken away 'to expose the stand-pipe to view.

Figs. 5 and 6 are views of the false bottom used for drysteaming.

The letter A designates the bottom vessel,

which serves as a boiler. This vessel has a side lip, Z), which enables the boiler to be replenished with water. The boiler furnishes steam to supply the several cooking-vessels 0 above it. Each cooking-vessel is entirely independent of the other, and the bottom of one sits within the top of the other. The bottom d is flat, and may be employed alone as an ordinary stew-pan upon the stove-lop. A stand-pipe, e, is attached to an opening through the bottom and slightly tapers or reduces in size toward its upper end. Each stand-pipe has near its upper end an outlet or opening, f.

It will be seen by reflnrencc to Fig. 1 that when theseveral vessels 0 are in position one upon the othorthe large lower end of the pipe in one vessel will receive the small upper end of the pipe in the vessel next below it. Thus the pipes e of the several vessels connect, and,togcther, form a cominuous pipe inclosed within the vessels and leading from the boiler A to the topn'njist vessel. By this arrangement of connected pipes each vessel will receive from the opening f a due share of steam, and the pipes are not exposed on the outside of thcvcssels. The upper end of the pipe in the top vessel may be closed bya cap, g, and the vessel itself by a cover, G.

As shown in Fig. 4E and in the middle vessel in Fig. 1, the stand-pipe e has a band or Fig. 3 is a side l collar, 71, loosely surrounding it. This collar has a hole, f. The band fits about thepipe where the steanroutlet f is, and maybe turned 3 thereon by grasping it with the thumb and fingers. This loose band serves to close the opening or outlet f and prevent steam from entering to the vessel, while allowing it to pass up to the vessel above, or by turning the said loose band it so that the two holes ff coincide steam may pass laterally from the pipe to the vessel. This contriva-nce to regulate the inflow of steam is of advantage, for the reason that some articles of foodsuch as turnips and other green vegetablesneed no water such as will come from a condensation of the steam, while other articlessuch as 1 rice, hominy, and dry fruits-are benefited by such addition of water. lYhether steam enters the vessel or not, each vessel will be heated sufliciently by the heat of the vessel above and below to cook well.

A false bottom, I, sits within any one or all of the vessels, if desired. This false bottom has a down flange, j, at its rim, which sup ports it elevated, and a notch, is, to take about the stand-pipe c. This false bottom serves to keep certain articles of food above the water of condensation, which maybe on the bottom of the vessel. It is found that by this arrangement food may be cooked substantially I alike in each and all of the vessels, and that the j flavor of food in one vessel will not affect that i in another.

This construction, whereby the several ad vantages are obtained, is simpler and cheaper than others.

Having described my invention, I claim- The steam-cooker herein described, consisting of a base-boiler having arranged above the same aseries of receptacles provided with perforated pipes having perforated collars mounted thereon, a removable cap on the upl per end of the upper tube, and a removable flanged bottom having a notch which surrounds the pipe of the receptacle, substantially as and for the purpose speciflied.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
