  • Publication number: 20230408082
    Abstract: A separator circuit for a steam generation system. The separator circuit comprises a steamer connection tube and a liquid bin tube that extends vertically between a steam outlet for providing steam to a cavity of a cooking appliance and a recirculation tube for routing condensation back into the provided steam generation system. A slide tube is sloped downwardly from the steamer connection tube to the liquid bin tube for gravitationally accelerating condensation from the steamer connection tube through the liquid bin tube and into the recirculation tube. A vortex section is located between the slide tube and the liquid bin tube and includes a choke wall. The choke wall extends from a first end decreasing a cross-sectional flow path of the vortex section to a second end in a direction of the liquid bin tube.

  • Publication number: 20230122477
    Abstract: A method for estimating a temperature measurement of an item of cookware being heated is provided. The method includes (1) placing a cookware item containing water, on a cooking plate; (2) powering an electric heating circuit with a first power for a first time interval to heat the cookware item as far as the water contained therein boils, wherein said first time interval is determined so as said temperature sensor senses a first steady state temperature value; (3) powering said electric heating circuit with a second power for a second time interval to heat the cookware item to keep boiling the water contained therein, wherein said second time interval is determined so as said temperature sensor attains a second steady state temperature value; and (4) determining, as a function of said first steady state temperature value and of said second steady state temperature value, an induction cooktop gain.
