NITE STATES ANNA OTTO SCHUCKMAN, OF LINCOLN, NEBRASKA CULINARY APPARATUS,

srncrcn'rroiv forming part of Letters ratent ivo. 400,255, dated March 2e, lese Application tiled November 14, 1888, Serial NoA 290,802; (No model.)

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, ANNA Orro SoHUoxMAN, of Lincoln, in Lancaster county, Nebraska, a

citizen of the United States, residing at Lincoln, in the county of Lancaster and State of Nebraska, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Culinary Apparatus; and I do declaro the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and gures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this speciiicat-ion.

My invention relates to an improvement in culinary devices, and especially to the class of domestic Steamers designed to be attached to an ordinary cooking vessel or boiler to facilitate the operation of cooking or for the purpose of steaming or warming food.

It consists in certain details of construction and arrangement of parts, hereinafter more specifically described in the 'accompanying specification, illustrated in the drawings, and pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective of my device. Fig. 2 is a side elevation. Fig. 3 is a central cross -section Fig. 4: is a vertical section of a cooking boiler or vessel with my improvement attached, showing its position during the operation of cooking, and means of attachment and adjustment.

Referring more speoilically to the drawings by letter, A is a metallic disk, which may be of any suitable size to iit within an` ordinary cooking-vessel, and it is provided throughout its entire surface with fine perforations for the passage of steam. It is preferably made slightly concavo-convex in shape, and has secured upon its upper or convex sidean elbowstandard, B, consisting of an upright portion or arm, l), and a foot or horizontal arm, b. Through the youter end of the foot b are perforations c, to receive a screw-bolt, d, which passes down through the disk A at or nearits center, and is provided with a nut, e, fitted upon its outer end, beneath the disk, for securing the disk to the standard.

Upon the upright portion Z) of the standard is provided a slotted cle vis-shaped slide, D, through the slot a of which the upright b projects, enabling the clevis to slide freely up or down upon the upright; but its motion is controlled by a thumb -screw, E, projecting through the outer arm of the clevis and bearing against the upright, as shown in Figs. l and 2.

In devices heretofore employed for steaming or warming articles of food, or for preventing them from burning or scorching by contact with the bottom of the cooking-vessel, it has usually been necessary to specially adapt the vessel to support the device by providing lugs or flanges within the vessel or appliances to its cover for suspendingy it therefrom; or they have been made to consist of a cage, box, or disk having a rod or hook secured at one side for suspending it from the edge of the vessel, in which case the support, being entirely upon one side, permits the opposit-e side to sag down, so that the bottom of the disk or basket, when loaded, assumes an inclined or slanting position, allowing the articles thereon to slide downward to the lowest side.

The object of my invention is to overcome these objections by providing a simple and cheap device capable of being applied to any ordinary cooking vessel or steamer, and which is suspended from its center, so that when loaded it will occupy a horizontal position wit-hin the vessel, the downward pressure being uniform on all sides.

The slide or clasp D is designed to embrace and lit over the-upper edge of a cooking-vessel to which my device is applied, and adjustably secure it within the same, by means of the thumb-screw, at any desired distance from the bottom, as shown in Fig. 4.

I am aware that cooking attachments have been heretofore used consisting of an openwork cage, box, or disk to contain the articles to be cooked, and adapted to be suspended or supported within a cooking vessel or boiler; also, that means have been provided for adjusting the height of such device within the cooking-vessel, and I do not claim this,broadly.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s-

l. In a steaming attachment for boilers, t-he combination of the perforated disk A, the elbow-shaped standard having its foot riveted IOO and adapt the hook to slide thereon, and the seffserew E, to adj ust it to position, all oombined and arranged substantially as and for the purpose described.

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

ANNA OTT() S() H UUKMAN.
