|1. (WO2017038021) COOKING APPARATUS|
|Applicants:||PANASONIC INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MANAGEMENT CO., LTD.
This cooking apparatus (10) is equipped with: a heating chamber (4) in which an object to be heated is mounted; a radiation heater (38) which is provided within the heating chamber (4) and operates in a preheat mode and a cooking mode; and a controller which controls the radiation heater (38). The controller is configured so as to cause the radiation heater (38) to operate in the standby mode between the end of the preheat mode and the start of the cooking mode. In this embodiment, the surface temperature of the radiation heater (38) is maintained in a high state during the standby mode between the end of the preheat mode and the start of cooking in order to allow minimization of uneven browning due to variation in the surface temperature of the radiation heater (38) at the start of cooking.
