Abstract

An automated grilling unit (1) guides prepared foodstuffs in portions from a storage container (3, 103, 203) with the aid of a removal device (10, 110, 210) and places them on a heatable conveyor unit (13, 113, 213). The conveyor unit takes the form of a mobile first plate (13, 213) or belt conveyor (113) and at least part of it can be heated. The food arrives on the conveyor in a grilling position in which the food articles are placed between the conveyor and a heating element. The heating element takes the form of a second heating plate (16, 216) or a second belt conveyor (116). After grilling, the grilled food passes through a guide and/or shredding device (23, 123, 274, 24, 124, 275) to an issuing aperture (27, 127, 276). The device according to the invention can be thoroughly cleaned and delivers rapidly high-quality grilled accompanying dishes with a constant grilling degree.

Description

Roasting device röstbare food

The invention relates to a roasting apparatus according to the preamble of claim 1.

In restaurants, particularly in fast-food establishments, particularly when a large number of guests at the same time to use, it is important that certain foods such as grilled meat or roasted (according to modern nutritional principles with as few or even without fat prepared) side dishes, such as potato geras¬ pelte masses or pasta, fast, preferably a plurality of portions at the same time, can be prepared with little effort and constant quality.

From US 4 91 9965 a method for roasting Kartoffelschei¬ ben is known. This method provides that potato slices are kontinu¬ ously placed on a first conveyor belt on which they pass under a Würzvorrichtung by in an intermediate container. The refuse len in the intermediate container allows a desired absorbing the spice. the potato slices enter konti¬ ously on a second conveyor belt which leads them to a heater zu¬ from the intermediate container. The heater comprises two cooking surfaces provided with conveyor belts. The potato slices are pressed during the transport through the heating device between the conveyor belts and roasted and reach finally presented on a third conveyor belt to a packaging station. This method is not suitable to provide bereitzu¬ required individual portions, which are consumed directly in the hot state. In addition, to implement the method a plant with a plurality of conveyor belts and a correspondingly large amount of space is necessary, which is suitable for use in a food factory, but not in a restaurant operation.

Now, an automatic device is known from WO 83/02883, which is admixed a dehγdrierten potato mass of water, the mass portions in particles - for example, in sticks ( "particles") or discs ( "potato chips") - shaped, this by means of a tiltable promotes conveyor for preparation in a heating device and after the preparation of the heater to a discharge opening. Since the heater is designed as a deep-frying apparatus with heated oil, the potato material is roasted but not deep-fried. For introducing the particles into the oil of the conveyor is tilted so that an end portion with the particles immersed in the oil. After frying, the conveyor must be moved by an opposite tilting motion from the oil out. Through openings in the conveyor oil can drip from the particles into the heating device.

A heater formed as a deep-frying apparatus has the disadvantage that the oil must be continuously maintained at a high temperature, which is associated with energy losses. Adhering to the particles of oil makes this difficult to digest and results in Heizvorrich¬ processing to a loss of oil that must be replaced. For regular replacement of oil a refill device is needed.

The known device has several drawbacks. So the oil is, for example, oxidizes over time, and a good draining of the oil is time consuming. The screened Tenden in contact with oil Vorrich- processing parts, in particular the conveyor is provided with Abtropflöchern müs¬ sen be cleaned with great effort. The tiltable conveyor and the refill device result in a complicated structure.

The inventive task is to describe a simple Vorrich- tung, the short time for a trip operation quali¬ titatively quality and einwand¬ from the perspective of food hygiene free barbecue or Röstspeisen releases. If the following of roasting ge addressed is, including getting to understand grilling or frying. The food should therefore roasted (or grilled or - preferably fat free - fried) and are not floating, cooked in a liquid, such as oil.

This is achieved by the characterizing features of claim 1. Al¬ ternative or advantageous embodiments of the dependent claims are described by the label.

The inventive solution provides that the röstbare material ge optionally pre-cooked / or sterilized be¬ moistened by dehydrogenation again, is stored in at least one reservoir. To prevent Verpappen damp, lumpy food masses and Austrittspro¬ problems, an agitator is optionally in each reservoir minde¬ least provided. The at least one stirring element is ange¬ driven by at least one drive and a transmission device. Each reservoir is associated with a discharge device portions, given if a roller with recesses and a feeder, preferably, however, a passage-metering device. Optionally, the reservoir is constructed as a cooling container. Auf¬ due to the cooling of a quality deterioration of the food during the stocking can be prevented until the roasting process. For example, remains a cooled potato mixture essentially to-least during a day of color and / or taste and in terms of hygiene unchanged.

In a disk embodiment, the heating device comprises at least one pair of mutually associated heating plates, wherein at least each of a first heating plate is at least movable between a receiving position at the por- tions discharge device and a heating position. Nach¬ which the mass is reached in the discharge device to the first portions Heiz¬ plate, it is moved against the second heating plate. Wäh¬ rend roasting are the two heating plates opposed to each other in a Röstlage both sides of the mass receiving, if appropriate, variable-sized gap.

To achieve the Röstlage opposite position are where appropriate the first and / or second heating plate substantially senk¬ right to its surface movable towards one another after the horizontal movement of the first heating plate in a second heating plate. In order to reduce the heat losses during the roasting, are the heating plates during roasting optionally in a baking chamber in which the first heating plate by a closable baking chamber opening is movable.

For clearing the roasted product of the first heating plate is provided an unloader, soft optionally one on the first heating plate comprises movable slide, but preferably consists of a scraper, which is arranged so that the first heating plate is moved just below the stripper by so that it be¬ place royal toasted material is stripped.

The roasted material passes from the heating device, preferably by a control and / or a disrupter in at least one taking up vessel bar in which at least one outlet opening positionier¬. A guide device may be formed so that the roasted material passes in patty form on a receiving vessel. On the other hand, a disrupter is then provided when the calcine should come into the receiving vessel or, for example on ei¬ nen plate not in ganzstückiger (such as a hamburger steak) or Fladen- or cake form, but in loosened form. By the material to be roasted passes directly from the discharge to a heating plate and is cleared after roasting means of a slide or of a scraper from this, results in a very simple roasting apparatus. For moving the Röstmaterials in the roasting position, and for discharging is ONLY A movable first heating plate required. During roasting between the two heating plates is on the Freie¬ ren in the oil and thus dispense with a refilling device. Without draining the oil shortly after a trip operation a high-quality food is ready. With the food appear to reach the control and / or disrupter essentially only the contact surfaces of the heating plates in contact. The Reinigungsauf¬ wall is thus small.

In a band solution, the heating device comprises at least one movable transport bare surface on which the material to be roasted material is conveyed from the Austragsvor¬ direction, and at least one heating element. The most Rö¬ the required heat passes from the heating element directly and / or through the at least one transport surface to calcine. In the simplest case, the at least one transport surface of a continuous conveyor is band or of plates or elements formed of an endless conveyor. The heater - may optionally also be a elektri¬ rule or gas infrared heater or a microwave heater manual close - is arranged below the conveying surface on to a portion of the conveyor and / or. If necessary, the heating elements are firmly attached to the transport surface. The Röstbereich may be arranged between two parallel transport surfaces so that the calcine is supported on a lower transport surface and adjoined at the top of an upper surface Trans¬ port. The bottom conveyor extends on a first side with the discharge and on a second side to a discharge area. The optionally provided upper conveyor can be on the first side free access area between the Austrags¬ device and the lower conveyor so that material discharged material can fall directly from the discharge to these same free area of ​​the lower conveyor.

In the transport surface of the lower and / or of the optionally vorgese¬ Henen upper conveyor about depressions are provided which lead to formation of individual Röstgutportionen such as cakes, dumplings or cylinders. To turn compress the roasted material in the recesses, a voltage applied to the transport surface with depressions in a vor¬ given conveyor section, moving or fixed, the contact surface is provided. The discharge device is tuned to the roasted or to the roasting process. In order to enable the toasting a product web with individual portions, preferably a portions donating Austragsor- is gan, such as a cellular wheel, is used. Optionally, a continuous discharge end member, such as a screw discharge is provided, in which case but are needed for the portion forming additive.

There are also embodiments provided in which are located between the discharge and the lower transport surface Behandlungsvor¬ directions about the shape to be roasted good and / or add the Good ingredients. For example, patties or dumplings can be formed, optionally coated with ingredients or be filled. In addition to in the prior art, in particular from DE 33 28 244, known molding devices such as a vertical cylindrical in conceivable on the upper optionally funnel-shaped aus¬ opening formed dough and eventually abandoned filler wer¬ to, and in the lower region a suction device is provided for drawing the dough, so that the coming out of the cylinder mass reaches approximately in the shape of dumplings on the transport surface.

In this case, a single dumplings a filling before beating up the sheet of dough or applied. The dumplings according to the invention is then spherical in the (semi-) recesses, movable heating platens or roasted on conveyor belt surfaces or cooked.

The roasted and optionally senk¬ of an ejection device rather ejected to the conveyor belt direction, material passes from the heating device, or the transport surface - is optionally substituted by a control and / or a disrupter - to at least one Aufnah- meorgan, preferably a receiving vessel, which at the end of För¬ rough andes, possibly laterally therefrom, can be positioned. For example, transversely to the running direction of the conveyor belt lying cylinder of the roasted material to be pressed by a laterally disposed ejection punch in cylindrical tubes of edible material, so that the consumption may be carried out an ice-cream in cones similar and no packaging waste remains. As a particularly expedient has also been found wenig¬ least a filling tube for introducing sauces or the like can protrude into the axis of the sleeve or of the cup and to fill the draw in Heraus¬ remaining cavity accordingly.

A disrupter is then provided when the calcine should come into the receiving vessel in loosened form. If necessary, the guiding device is also designed so that the roasted Ma¬ TERIAL passes in patty form on a receiving vessel such as a plate.

The inventive device can be cleaned well and quickly delivers high-quality and flawless from the standpoint of food hygiene Röstbeilagen constant roasting.

Both in the Platteniösung and in the band, the possibility exists that several roasted dishes, including gen mentioned Beila-, ready simultaneously. For this purpose, in each case several, preferably saw two or possibly four, working in parallel lines vor¬ preparation. In this case, only those of the desired insert ge number is corresponding number of sets einge¬ Zubereitungsiinien means of a controller, respectively. In order to provide parallel lines preparation portions a discharge device is at least so formed that at least two separated portions are ge can be laid onto the transport means. If necessary, but any preparation line includes own transport.

The controller is preferably connected to a control panel, via which input the desired number of inserts and the Zube¬ reitungsvorgang is triggered. In order to prevent the roasted inserts emerge without a receiving vessel adjoins the Austrittsöff¬ voltage, preferably a sensor arrangement is provided which detects the presence of a receptacle and passes it on to the control for release of the preparation and / or output operation. If necessary, the preparation process is triggered directly by the insertion of a receiving vessel.

The control of roasting depends on their application. In restaurants and snack bars, the device is be¬ the staff driven and delivers side dishes that come about on plate with other parts of a dish. The inclusion of vessels or plates are guided by the staff to the outlet opening of the guide device, so that it is advantageous, if necessary, if the preparation can be set in motion without einge- Iegtes collecting vessel, but the Austre¬ th from the guide device only when pickled vessel takes place. For this, the guide would have a restraining device for at least one serving include that is open in engaged vessel or opened. When the roaster is operated by the customer, the control must somewhat analogous to the controls of known beverage, be insbe¬ sondere coffee machine, trained. Among them is the connection of a known value or cash card machines and / or a delivery device for receiving vessels. The controller optionally monitors other operating parameters, such as the pressure falls below a lower reservoir level in the Vorratsbehäl¬ ter, the closed position of a reservoir Einfüllorgans, the temperature of an optionally provided refrigerated container, or the Kühlme¬ diums, and the temperature at least one heating plate, or . a heating element. During preparation of individual operations, the controller controls the actuation of the discharge device, the transport means of the optionally provided discharge gate and the optionally provided disrupter. The operation of the mixing elements is preferably also controlled by the controller, rotate continuously about those in the working condition of the roaster.
