Title (EN) TOOLS FOR SHAPING A FOOD ITEM
(FR) OUTILS DE FAÇONNAGE D'UN PRODUIT ALIMENTAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems and methods for shaping food items are provided. The systems and methods can shape the food items into taco shapes. A system can include a basket, a tool, and an insert. The basket includes troughs and a handle. The tool includes guides that receive patties made of, for example, potatoes, meat, and/or other food items. The insert includes wedges sized and shaped to fit through the guides and into the troughs of the basket. The tool is assembled with the basket in use, and frozen patties are placed in the guides. The insert is assembled with the tool such that the wedges contact the patties. The assembly is placed in hot oil to cook the patties. As the patties cook and soften, the insert moves downward relative to the tool and basket, and the wedges urge the patties into the troughs and into a taco shape.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés pour façonner des produits alimentaires. Les systèmes et les procédés peuvent façonner les produits alimentaires en formes de taco. L'invention concerne un système qui peut comprendre un panier, un outil et un insert. Le panier comprend des creux et une poignée. L'outil comprend des guides qui reçoivent des galettes constituées, par exemple, de pommes de terre, de viande et/ou d'autres produits alimentaires. L'insert comprend des coins de forme et de dimensions s'ajustant dans les guides et dans les creux du panier. L'outil est assemblé avec le panier lors de l'utilisation, et des galettes congelées sont placées dans les guides. L'insert est assemblé avec l'outil de telle sorte que les coins entrent en contact avec les galettes. L'ensemble est placé dans l'huile chaude pour cuire les galettes. Au fur et à mesure de la cuisson et du ramollissement des galettes, l'insert se déplace vers le bas par rapport à l'outil et au panier, et les coins poussent les galettes dans les creux et en forme de taco.
