Title: ELECTRONIC OVEN WITH SPLATTER PREVENTION
Abstract:
This disclosure includes an electronic oven and an accompanying control system that avoid boiling or splattering in a heating chamber of the oven while an item is being heated in the chamber. A disclosed method which can be executed by the control system includes evaluating sensor data from a visible light sensor and sensor data from an infrared light sensor. The controller is communicatively coupled to the visible light sensor and the infrared light sensor. The method also comprises generating a splatter prediction in response to the evaluation of the sensor data from the visible light sensor and the sensor data from the infrared light sensor. The method also comprises decreasing a power level of the microwave energy source in response to the splatter prediction. The controller is also communicatively coupled to the microwave energy source.
