Abstract (en)

[origin: EP3462812A1] A method is provided for operating a cooker having at least one overflow sensing element associated with a heating element of the cooker, the at least one overflow sensing element having a measurable characteristic. The method comprises: (i) making measurements of the measurable characteristic for the at least one overflow sensing element; (ii) determining, using measurements made at (i) during a calibration period, a reference value for the characteristic for the at least one overflow sensing element; (iii) comparing a subsequent measurement made at (i) with the respective reference value for the characteristic thereby to identify an overflow event if a determined difference between the subsequent measurement and the respective reference value of the characteristic exceeds a predetermined threshold; and (iv) if an overflow event is identified at (iii), generating a warning for a user. The invention extends to a cooker, a cooker controller and a computer program.
