Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1213542A2] In conventional ovens the heating elements are controlled by a thermostat which cycles the temperature between a minimum and maximum cavity temperature. The cycling is constant over the whole cooking time. According to the invention the energy supply is controlled by the obtaining of a stable cycling, subsequent to which the temperature drops a predetermined amount, followed by renewed feeding of energy until stable conditions again prevail, and the process repeats itself. This type of control permits considerable energy savings. <IMAGE>
