  • Publication number: 20210298534
    Abstract: A removable handle is designed to cooperate with a cooking container having a side wall extended upwards by an outwardly-curved portion including a free end and includes a latch that can be moved between an open and a closed positions. The latch includes a locking panel designed to generate a force on the free end in the closed position, under the action of a means of pressurization, the force having a vertical component F for locking the free end against an upper supporting body. The latch has a protruding body and the handle includes a hollow body or reciprocally. In the closed position, the protruding body and the hollow body are fitted into each other to prevent the latch from recoiling when the free end generates, on the locking panel, a force having a component F1 opposite to the vertical component F with an intensity greater than a predetermined value.

  • Patent number: 11083326
    Abstract: A ground coffee dispenser intended to cooperate with a coffee machine, includes a ground coffee storage reservoir provided with a contour and a bottom, and a ground coffee distributor pouring a predefined quantity of ground coffee from the reservoir into a brewing area of the machine. The distributor includes a disk driven in rotation, curved blades being attached onto a lower face of the disk. The quantity of ground coffee poured is defined by a peripheral space provided between the diameter of the periphery of the disk and an inner wall of the contour, close to the bottom of the storage reservoir. The bottom of the reservoir includes an opening for transferring the ground coffee arranged under the disk. The curved blade extends from the periphery towards the inside of the disk to transfer the ground coffee admitted by the peripheral space into the transfer opening when the disk rotates.
