  • Patent number: 10327580
    Abstract: Provided is a coffee maker where a heated state coffee liquid can be obtained by performing an extraction operation in an extraction unit, and can be sufficiently cooled down to a temperature, to provide tasty iced coffee, and in which a cooled state of the coffee liquid can be maintained. An ice basket is arranged inside a server, and is disposed to receive and disperse the coffee liquid that is dripping from an extraction unit. The ice basket is formed in a vertically elongated shape, and internally includes an ice storage. A liquid feeding hole, which feeds the coffee liquid inside the ice storage to the server, is formed in a peripheral edge portion of a bottom portion.

  • Patent number: 10333489
    Abstract: A crystal unit includes an AT-cut crystal element and a container. The AT-cut crystal element has an approximately rectangular planar shape. The AT-cut crystal element includes a first inclined portion, second inclined portions, and a first secured portion. The first inclined portion is inclined such that the crystal element decreases in thickness from a proximity of the first side to the first side. The second inclined portions are disposed on respective both ends of the first side, the second inclined portions being formed integrally with the first inclined portion. The second inclined portions are inclined gentler than the first inclined portion. The first secured portion and a second secured portion are formed integrally with the second inclined portion. The first secured portion and the second secured portion each project out from the first side to outside the crystal element to be used for securing with the securing members.
