Title: A METHOD AND COOKING APPARATUS FOR PREPARING FOOD MATERIALS
Abstract:
The invention provides a method for preparing food materials (3) within a cooking apparatus (1), wherein the cooking apparatus (1) includes a stirrer (4) with a stirring element (14) and an actuator (15) configured for driving the stirring element (14), and wherein the method comprises: stirring the food materials (3) in a cooking space (2) of the cooking apparatus (1) by the stirring element (14) with heat applied by a heat source (5); and adjusting the introduction of the heat into the cooking space (2) by the heat source (5) and/or the rotation speed of the stirrer; measuring the difference in pressure and/or temperature between opposed sides of the stirring element (14) that face respective rotational directions of the stirring element; and controlling the amount of heat being applied into the cooking space (2) and/or the rotation speed of the stirrer (4) based on a resistance indicating signal dependent on the measured temperature and/or pressure difference. Furthermore, the invention provides a cooking apparatus that is prepared to execute the inventive method.
