Title (EN) TOASTER
(FR) GRILLE-PAIN
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A variable-width toaster is described, in which the food-supporting carriage (5, 60) adapts readily, robustly and in a cost-effective manner to different width settings of the toasting chamber (2, 70). Respective elongate members (51, 52; 61, 62) are mounted to either side of the toasting chamber and are linked together by linking members (53a - 53n; 63a, 63b) which form part of the food-supporting surface and are pivotally attached to the elongate members to accommodate lateral relative movement between the elongate members as the width of the toasting chamber is varied. In one embodiment, unitary linking members (53a - 53n) link the two elongate members (51, 52) and the elongate members are urged apart by a spring (54). In another embodiment, chevron-like linking members, comprising pairs of pivotally associated linking members (63 a, 63b) are employed.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un grille-pain de largeur variable, comprenant un chariot porte-aliments (5, 60) qui s’adapte de manière facile, robuste et économique aux différents réglages de la largeur de la chambre de grillage (2, 70). Des éléments allongés (51, 52, 61, 62) correspondants sont montés sur les deux côtés de la chambre de grillage et sont reliés par des éléments de liaison (53a - 53n ; 63a, 63b) qui forment une partie de la surface porte-aliments, et sont fixés par pivotement aux éléments allongés afin de permettre un mouvement latéral relatif entre les éléments allongés, la largeur de la chambre de grillage étant modulée. Dans un mode de réalisation, des éléments de liaison unitaires (53a - 53n) relient les deux éléments allongés (51, 52) et les éléments allongés sont séparés par un ressort (54). Dans un autre mode de réalisation, on utilise des éléments de liaison de type chevron, comprenant des paires d’éléments de liaison (63a, 63b) associés par pivotement.
