  • Publication number: 20190150663
    Abstract: A grilling device includes an oven section having an outer wall with opposing side portions and an encircling body portion extending therebetween. The body portion has an access opening and the grilling device includes a lid that selectively covers the access opening by means of a handle attached thereto. The grilling device also includes opposing hinge elements connected to opposite sides of the lid and to the side portions of the outer wall, as opposed to the encircling body portion. In particular, the hinge elements are connected to respective rear areas of the side portions. Accordingly, the path of opening the lid has a different shape or curvature and thereby positions the handle substantially lower than if the hinge elements were connected to the body portion adjacent to the access opening. The opposing side portions have a substantially oval shape and the hinge elements have an elongated configuration.

  • Publication number: 20060069598
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for distributing stock in a distribution network. The distribution network may include a source location and a plurality of target locations. In the disclosed systems and methods, the stock requirements of the target locations may be categorized into a plurality of requirement types, wherein each requirement type reflects a category of stock requirements for one of the target locations. In addition, the plurality of requirement types may be prioritized by order of importance and/or the plurality of target locations may be prioritized for each requirement type based on at least one sequence rule. Based on the prioritized requirement types and/or prioritized sequence of the target locations, the stock may be distributed to the plurality of target locations.
