  • Publication number: 20190219325
    Abstract: A storage basket used for storing and displaying food products and packages in a refrigerator or freezer unit may include a single-material first portion including a bottom wall and an upright wall that extends away from the bottom wall. The bottom wall and the upright wall are imperforate, thereby creating a solid barrier to transfer and fall-through of materials contained in the storage basket. The storage basket may also include a single-material second portion coupled to and extending from the upright wall, and the second portion may include a plurality of perforations. The plurality of perforations may permit airflow around and about the materials contained in the storage basket.

  • Patent number: 10260757
    Abstract: An oven rack assembly (2000) can be used with an oven (128?) having sets of liner ribs (1004). The oven rack assembly (2000) includes an oven rack (208), slide system (2018) and subframe (2040). The oven rack assembly (2000) also includes a retention/release assembly (2060) for facilitating retention of a position of the subframe (2040) onto liner ribs (2004) and for facilitating release of the subframe (2040) when a user wishes to remove or move the assembly (2000) from the oven. Attachment plates (2065) can also be included, with the plates (2065) mounted to side stampings (2022). The oven rack assembly (2000) also includes protruding forms (2122) on the subframe (2040) which interact with forms (2124) positioned along the liner ribs (2004) to prevent tipping of the subframe (2040) when the oven rack (2008) is moved to an extended position.
