Title: VALVE FOR A KITCHEN APPLIANCE
Abstract:
A valve for a container of a kitchen appliance comprises an over-pressure emission valve, which may be provided in a lid of the container. The valve comprises a plug for blocking an aperture in the container, wherein the plug is biased towards the aperture such that if over-pressure develops within the container which exceeds a predetermined value the plug is expelled from the aperture to dissipate the over-pressure, and the biasing force then returns the plug to a position blocking the aperture. The predetermined value of the overpressure required to move the plug is less than approximately 15000 N/m2
