  • Patent number: 6572911
    Abstract: An oven utilizes a convective heat transfer mechanism for cooking the food products where the oven provides heated gas in the form of columns or streams and which are directed to at least one surface of a food product within the oven. Moisture, in the form of steam, is introduced within the convective heat transfer mechanism. Thus, an effective moisture environment can be created at and around the surface of the food product that is cooked under the influence of the heated gas/steam columns or streams. More preferably, steam is introduced within the convective heat transfer mechanism for creating a moisture environment substantially surrounding the entire food product during its baking.

  • Patent number: 4708054
    Abstract: Biscuit creaming apparatus (1) comprises a stencil tube (2) rotatably mounted on a rotatable stencil sleeve (3), the stencil sleeve having spaced-apart outlet ports (5) alignable with discharge orifices (6) in the stencil tube. Alignment can take place with both the tube (2) and sleeve (3) stationary whereby cream supplied to the stencil sleeve is caused to discharge from the discharge orifices of the stencil tube at an angle, (preferably between about 45.degree. and 120.degree.), to the vertical, during air purging operation, such that a tray (47) can easily be placed in position to collect the cream for reuse. Alternatively, alignment with the stencil sleeve (3) stationary and the stencil tube (2) rotatable thereabout, causes cream supplied to the stencil sleeve to discharge downwardly and sequentially from orifices (6) in the stencil tube on to biscuit shells carried by a conveyor band 44.
