    Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD



    [0001] The present invention relates to the field of kitchen appliances, and specifically relates to a heating appliance.

    BACKGROUND



    [0002] Heating appliances such as an electric kettle, a rice cooker and the like are becoming more and more common in daily life, and current heating appliances such as an electric kettle, a rice cooker and the like mostly display working state thereof by a LED (light-emitting diode) lamp, or display water temperature information and the like by a digital tube. With the development of projection technology, the projection technology has been applied to some of the kettle products, but the current products with projection technology set the outer casing to be transparent or translucent material, and at the same time dispose the projection box inside the product, and then project to the outer casing of the product. However, in this way, the user needs to observe the projection content through the outer casing of the kettle body, resulting in that the projection content viewed outside the outer casing of the kettle body is relatively fuzzy. At the same time, due to the limitation of the volume of the outer casing itself of the kettle body, disposing the projection box inside the product may result in that both the object distance and the image distance cannot be made relatively large due to the space limitation, so that the content of the projection cannot be made very large.

    [0003] Therefore, how to propose a new heating appliance with an improved projection function has become an urgent problem to be solved.

    [0004] WO 2018/093234 A1 provides an induction-heating cooking device having, inter alia, a projection unit and a reflection plate. The projection unit consists of a small projector and is able to display cooking information on the reflection plate disposed in the induction-heating cooking device. Therefore, the displayed information can be observed by a user through a transparent area of the top plate of the cooking device.

    [0005] The kettle disclosed in CN 107 149 404 A having a projection function, which allows information such as temperature and time generated inside the kettle to be projected to the outside of the kettle through a projection imaging device, wherein the projection imaging device can be a convex lens.

    [0006] KR 2017 0037122 A discloses a cooking auxiliary device of a cooking system that can project information related to cooking in the form of image on the surface of cooking containers placed on the cooking system. The projection is achieved by the image projection unit provided in the rotating part of the cooking auxiliary device, wherein the rotating part of the cooking auxiliary device can rotate relative to the cooking system.

    SUMMARY



    [0007] The present invention aims to solve at least one of the technical problems existing in the prior art or related art.

    [0008] Therefore, one object of the present invention is to provide a heating appliance.

    [0009] In view of this, the embodiment of the first aspect of the present invention provides a heating appliance, comprising: an appliance body; and a projection assembly which is mounted on the appliance body and is able to project a projection toward the outside of the appliance body.

    [0010] The heating appliance provided according to an embodiment of the present invention comprises the appliance body and the projection assembly, and the projection assembly is mounted on the appliance body. Herein, the projection assembly can be mounted either inside the appliance body or outside the appliance body. The projection assembly is able to project a projection toward the outside of the appliance body. That is, the projection assembly is able to perform projection directly outside the appliance body, so that the projection generated by the projection assembly is located outside the appliance body. That is, the projection assembly is able to generate the projection directly outside the appliance body, so that the user is able to directly view the projection generated by the projection assembly outside the appliance body. With this structure, since there is no block from the outer casing of the product when the user views the projection, the projection viewed by the user is clearer. In addition, with this structure, since the projection is outside, the position of the projection can be selected according to actual needs to determine the size of the projection, so that the product is able to adjust the size of the projection according to the actual needs of the user, and the size of the projection is not limited by the volume of the outer casing and the like of the appliance body, which improves the usage experience of the user.

    [0011] Wherein, the outside of the appliance body comprises the outside surface of the appliance body and the space outside the appliance body.

    [0012] In addition, the heating appliance provided according to the above embodiment provided by the present invention also has the following additional technical features:
    In the above technical solution, the projection assembly comprises: a lens; a display apparatus which is able to emit projection light rays, irradiate the projection light rays onto the lens, and form a projection outside the appliance body by the lens.

    [0013] In this technical solution, the projection assembly specifically comprises the lens and the display apparatus, and the lens is able to be mounted on the appliance body and is used to adjust the light rays, so that the size, the position, and the like of the projection is able to be adjusted. The display apparatus is provided with information to be projected such as characters or patterns to be projected, and the display apparatus is able to display contents to be projected thereon such as characters or patterns to be projected. The specific display principle may be a transmission display principle or a refraction display principle. Specifically, the contents that need to be displayed may be illuminated first, or other portions other than contents to be projected such as characters or patterns to be projected may be illuminated, so that the contents to be projected such as characters or patterns that need to be projected is able to be converted into projection light rays related to information to be projected to be highlighted. After the characters or patterns that need to be projected are highlighted by the projection light rays, the projection light rays are able to be irradiated onto the lens first, so that the projection is able to be formed when the light image passing through the lens is irradiated onto other objects, such as a screen or a cooktop. So far the projection display of characters or patterns to be projected is able to be achieved.

    [0014] In the above technical solution, the display apparatus comprises a light transmitting member and a light emitting source; the light transmitting member is provided with information to be projected, the light emitting source, the light transmitting member, and the lens are sequentially spaced apart along the same direction, and light rays emitted by the light emitting source are able to be irradiated onto the light transmitting member, and are able to be irradiated onto the lens through the light transmitting member.

    [0015] In these technical solutions, the display apparatus comprises the light transmitting member and the light emitting source, wherein the light transmitting member is provided with information to be projected, that is, provided with characters or patterns or the like that need to be projected. When mounting the light transmitting member, the light transmitting member is able to be mounted corresponding to the lens, so that light passing through the light transmitting member is able to be projected onto the lens. The light emitting source is used for emitting light. When being mounted, the light emitting source is able to be mounted on the appliance body corresponding to the light transmitting member, so as to illuminate the characters or patterns on the light transmitting member. The light that is irradiated onto the information to be projected is able to be irradiated onto the lens through the light transmitting member, and then the projection is able to be formed outside the product. With this structure, the light transmitting member and the light emitting source are two parts, which are able to make the structure of the light transmitting member more diverse. Of course, the light transmitting member and the light emitting source can also be one part, such as an integrated structure. When specifically disposing, the light emitting source, the light transmitting member, and the lens may be sequentially spaced apart along the same direction. For example, the light emitting source, the light transmitting member, and the lens may be sequentially spaced apart from the top down. That is, herein, the light emitting source, the light transmitting member, and the lens are preferably disposed on the same line. Of course, when a part such as a reflector is used, the light emitting source, the light transmitting member, and the lens may not be disposed on the same straight line.

    [0016] Of course, in other solutions, projection can also be performed without the transmission principle, and can also be performed by the refraction principle of light.

    [0017] In any one of the above technical solutions, preferably, the light transmitting member is made of light transmitting material, the light transmitting member is provided with opaque patterns or characters, or the light transmitting member is made of non-light transmitting material, the light transmitting member is provided with a light transmission hole, and the light transmission hole is able to form at least one character and/or at least one pattern.

    [0018] In these technical solutions, on the one hand, the light transmitting member may be a transparent structure made of light transmitting material (such as transparent material). At this time, some opaque patterns and characters may be disposed on the light transmitting member to be the projection information to be projected. Thus, when the light emitted from the light emitting source is irradiated onto the light transmitting member, the place where the characters and the patterns are disposed cannot transmit light, but for the place where the characters and the patterns are not disposed, the light is able to be irradiated onto the lens through the light transmitting member. Thus, the characters and patterns after projection are able to be displayed in a shade manner. The opaque patterns and characters may preferably be made of a coating such as ink. Of course, the light transmitting member can also be made of non-light transmitting material. At this time, the information to be projected such as characters or patterns is able to be disposed on the light transmitting member in the form of a hole. For example, if a triangle needs to be projected, a triangular hole is able to be disposed on the light transmitting member. If a character needs to be projected, the corresponding character hole is able to be engraved on the light transmitting member. Thus, when the light emitted by the light emitting source is irradiated onto the light transmitting member, the light is able to pass through the holes corresponding to the character and the pattern. For the place where there is no character or pattern, the light of the light emitting source is blocked. Thus, when the light source passing through the hole is irradiated onto the projection surface such as a cooktop, the corresponding content is able to be projected, so that the characters and patterns which need to be projected are able to be displayed in a highlighted manner.

    [0019] In another technical solution described above, preferably, the light transmitting member is a display screen on which the information to be projected is able to be displayed, and the heating appliance further comprises: an information supply member which is connected to the display screen, is able to transfer one or more kinds of the information to be projected to the display screen, and is able to change the information to be projected on the display screen.

Preferably, the information supply member is able to be disposed corresponding to the display screen, so that the display content on the display screen is able to be controlled to change by the information supply member, so as to achieve projection of different contents. Thus, various parameter contents such as real-time temperature and heating power of the product are able to be displayed in real time by the projection assembly, so that the user is able to know these parameter information of the product in real time. Herein, the information supply member may be specifically a part such as a circuit board or a sensor capable of communicating with the display screen.

    [0021] In any one of the above technical solutions, preferably, the information supply member comprises a collecting apparatus and an electronic control board; wherein the collecting apparatus comprises one or more of a temperature detecting member, a TDS detecting apparatus, a movement sensor, a liquid level detecting member, and a pressure sensor.

Specifically, the display screen is able to be connected to the electronic control board or the collecting apparatus such as the temperature detecting member, the TDS detecting apparatus, and the like. Thus, the contents on the electronic control board, the temperature detecting member, the TDS detecting apparatus, and the like is able to be projected through the display screen, so that the parameters such as a temperature, a pressure, a TDS, a liquid level and a pressure of the product are able to be displayed in a projection manner for the user to view.

    [0023] Wherein TDS is the total dissolved solids, that is, the TDS detecting apparatus here is used to detect how many milligrams of lysate is contained per liter of water. The fixed content here comprises the content of organic matter and inorganic matter.

    [0025] In these technical solutions, the light transmitting member is able to be divided into a plurality of areas, each of which is provided with the content that is able to be displayed in a projection manner. At the same time, the light transmitting member is able to be rotatably and/or slidably mounted on the appliance body. Thus, by the rotation of the light transmitting member, different information to be projected is able to be placed in the irradiation area of the light emitting source, so that the content of the projection display is able to be changed to achieve the projection display of various contents.

    DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS



    [0084] In order to understand the above objects, features and advantages of the present invention more clearly, a further detailed description of the present invention will be given below combination with the drawings and specific embodiments. It should be noted that the embodiments in the present application and the features in the embodiments may be combined with each other without conflict.

    [0085] In the following description, many specific details are set forth in order to fully understand the present invention, but the present invention may be implemented by other manners different from those described herein. Therefore, the scope of protection of the present invention is not limited by the specific embodiments disclosed below.

    [0086] A heating appliance provided by an embodiment of the present invention will be described below with reference to Figs. 1-13 .

    [0087] As shown in Figs. 1-13 , an embodiment of the first aspect of the present invention provides a heating appliance, comprising the appliance body 1 and the projection assembly 2, as shown in Figs. 1 , 4 , 12 , and 13 , the projection assembly 2 is mounted on the appliance body 1 and is able to project a projection toward the outside of the appliance body 1.

    [0088] The heating appliance provided according to an embodiment of the present invention comprises the appliance body 1 and the projection assembly 2, and the projection assembly 2 is mounted on the appliance body 1. Herein, the projection assembly 2 is able to be mounted either inside the appliance body 1 or outside the appliance body 1. The projection assembly 2 is specifically for generating the projection 8, and the projection assembly 2 is able to project a projection toward the outside of the appliance body 1. That is, the projection assembly 2 is able to perform projection directly outside the appliance body 1, so that the projection generated by the projection assembly 2 is located outside the appliance body 1. That is, the projection assembly 2 is able to generate the projection 8 directly outside the appliance body 1, so that the user is able to directly view the projection 8 generated by the projection assembly 2 outside the appliance body 1. With this structure, since there is no block from the outer casing of the product when the user views the projection 8, the projection 8 viewed by the user is clearer. In addition, with this structure, since the projection is outside, the position of the projection is able to be selected according to actual needs to determine the size of the projection 8, so that the product is able to adjust the size of the projection 8 according to the actual needs of the user, and the size of the projection 8 is not limited by the volume of the outer casing and the like of the appliance body 1, which improves the usage experience of the user.

    [0089] Wherein, the dotted lines in Figs. 1, 4, 5, 12, and 13 indicate light rays. For convenience of description, the projection is simplified into a straight line in Figs. 1 , 4 , 5 , 12 , and 13 . However, in actual process, the shape of the projection is not necessarily a straight line, and the projection may be specifically information such as the character in Fig. 8 and the character in Fig. 3 , and of course, may also be information such as a pattern.

    [0090] Wherein, 88: 88 in Fig. 3 is the projection content in a specific embodiment.

    [0091] In the above embodiment, as shown in Fig. 5 , the projection assembly 2 comprises: the lens 22; the display apparatus 24 capable of emitting projection light rays, and the display apparatus 24 is able to irradiate the projection light rays onto the lens 22 and form the projection 8 outside the appliance body 1 by the lens 22.

    [0092] In this embodiment, the projection assembly 2 specifically comprises the lens 22 and the display apparatus 24, and the lens 22 is used to adjust the light rays so that the size, the position, and the like of the projection 8 is able to be adjusted. The display apparatus 24 is provided with information to be projected such as characters or patterns to be projected, and the display apparatus 24 is able to display contents to be projected thereon such as characters or patterns to be projected. The specific display principle may be a transmission display principle or a refraction display principle. Specifically, the contents that need to be displayed may be illuminated first, or other portions other than contents to be projected such as characters or patterns to be projected may be illuminated, so that the contents to be projected such as characters or patterns that need to be projected are able to be converted into projection light rays related to information to be projected to be highlighted. After the characters or patterns that need to be projected are highlighted by the projection light rays, the projection light rays are able to be irradiated onto the lens 22 first, so that the projection 8 is able to be formed when the light image passing through the lens 22 is irradiated onto other objects, such as a screen or a cooktop. So far the projection display of characters or patterns to be projected is able to be achieved.

    [0093] In the above embodiment, as shown in Fig. 5 , the display apparatus 24 comprises the light transmitting member 242 and the light emitting source 244; the light transmitting member 242 is provided with information to be projected, and the light emitting source 244, the light transmitting member 242, and the lens 22 are sequentially spaced a part along the same direction. The light rays emitted by the light emitting source 244 are able to be irradiated onto the light transmitting member 242, and is able to be irradiated onto the lens 22 through the light transmitting member 242.

    [0094] In these embodiments, the display apparatus 24 comprises the light transmitting member 242 and the light emitting source 244, wherein the light transmitting member 242 is provided with information to be projected, that is, characters or patterns that need to be projected, etc., and the light emitting source 244 is used for emitting light, so as to illuminate the characters or patterns on the light transmitting member 242. The light that is irradiated onto the information to be projected is able to be irradiated onto the lens 22 through the light transmitting member 242, and then the projection 8 is able to be formed outside the product. With this structure, the light transmitting member 242 and the light emitting source 244 are two parts, which are able to make the structure of the light transmitting member 242 more diverse. Of course, the light transmitting member 242 and the light emitting source 244 can also be one part, such as an integrated structure. When specifically disposing, the light emitting source 244, the light transmitting member 242, and the lens 22 may be sequentially spaced apart along the same direction. For example, the light emitting source 244, the light transmitting member 242, and the lens 22 may be sequentially spaced apart from the top down. That is, herein, the light emitting source 244, the light transmitting member 242, and the lens 22 are preferably disposed on the same line. Of course, when a part such as a reflector is used, the light emitting source 244, the light transmitting member 242, and the lens 22 may not be disposed on the same straight line.

    [0095] Of course, in other solutions, projection can also be performed without the transmission principle, and can also be performed by the refraction principle of light.

    [0096] In any one of the above embodiments, preferably, the light transmitting member 242 is made of light transmitting material, the light transmitting member 242 is provided with opaque patterns or characters, or the light transmitting member 242 is made of non-light transmitting material, the light transmitting member 242 is provided with a light transmission hole, and the light transmission hole is able to form at least one character and/or at least one pattern.

    [0097] In these embodiments, on the one hand, the light transmitting member 242 may be a transparent structure made of light transmitting material (such as transparent material). At this time, some opaque patterns and characters may be disposed on the light transmitting member 242 to be the projection information to be projected. Thus, when the light emitted from the light emitting source 244 is irradiated onto the light transmitting member 242, the place where the characters and the patterns are disposed cannot transmit light, but for the place where the characters and the patterns are not disposed, the light is able to be irradiated onto the lens 22 through the light transmitting member 242. Thus, the characters and patterns after projection are able to be displayed in a shade manner. The opaque patterns and characters may preferably be made of a coating such asink. Of course, the light transmitting member 242 can also be made of non-light transmitting material. At this time, the information to be projected such as characters or patterns is able to be disposed on the light transmitting member 242 in the form of a hole. For example, if a triangle needs to be projected, a triangular hole is able to be disposed on the light transmitting member 242. If a character needs to be projected, the corresponding character hole is able to be engraved on the light transmitting member 242. Thus, when the light emitted by the light emitting source 244 is irradiated onto the light transmitting member 242, the light is able to pass through the holes corresponding to the character and the pattern. For the place where there is no character or pattern, the light of the light emitting source 244 is blocked. Thus, when the light source passing through the hole is irradiated onto the projection surface such as a cooktop, the corresponding content is able to be projected, so that the characters and patterns which needs to be projected is able to be displayed in a highlighted manner.

    [0098] In another embodiment (not shown), preferably, the light transmitting member 242 is a display screen, and information to be projected is able to be displayed on the display screen, and the heating appliance further comprises: an information supply member which is connected to the display screen, is able to transfer one or more kinds of information to be projected to the display screen and is able to change the information to be projected on the display screen.

    [0099] In these embodiments, the light transmitting member 242 is also able to be disposed as a display screen, and the character and the pattern which need to be projected is able to be directly disposed on the display screen. Preferably, the information supply member is able to be disposed corresponding to the display screen, so that the display content on the display screen is able to be controlled to change by the information supply member, so as to achieve projection of different contents. Thus, various parameter contents such as real-time temperature and heating power of the product are able to be displayed in real time by the projection assembly 2, so that the user is able to know these parameter information of the product in real time. Herein, the information supply member may be specifically a part such as a circuit board or a sensor capable of communicating with the display screen.

    [0100] In any one of the above embodiments, preferably, the information supply member comprises a collecting apparatus (not shown) and an electronic control board (not shown); wherein the collecting apparatus comprises one or more of a temperature detecting member, a TDS detecting apparatus, a movement sensor, a liquid level detecting member, and a pressure sensor.

Specifically, the display screen is able to be connected to the electronic control board or the collecting apparatus such as the temperature detecting member, the TDS detecting apparatus, and the like. Thus, the contents on the electronic control board, the temperature detecting member, the TDS detecting apparatus, and the like are able to be projected through the display screen, so that the parameters such as a temperature, a pressure, a TDS, a liquid level and a pressure of the product are able to be displayed in a projection manner for the user to view.

    [0102] In any one of the above embodiments, as shown in Figs. 7-11 , the light transmitting member 242 is provided with a plurality of areas, each of which is provided with information to be projected, and the light from the light emitting source 244 is able to be irradiated onto at least one area on the light transmitting member 242; wherein the light transmitting member 242 is able to move relative to the light emitting source 244, and the irradiation area of the light emitting source 244 on the light transmitting member 242 is able to be adjusted by the movement of the light transmitting member 242.

    [0103] In these embodiments, the light transmitting member 242 is able to be divided into a plurality of areas, each of which is provided with the content that is able to be displayed in a projection manner. At the same time, the light transmitting member 242 is able to be rotatably and/or slidably mounted on the appliance body 1. Thus, by the rotation of the light transmitting member 242, different information to be projected is able to be placed in the irradiation area of the light emitting source 244, so that the content of the projection display is able to be changed to achieve the projection display of various contents.

    [0104] Wherein, the characters such as "drink more water", "boiling water", "cheer" and the like in Figs. 7-11 are the contents that are able to be projected in a specific embodiment. Herein, the characters such as "drink more water", "boiling water", "cheer" and the like are only for exemplifying, rather than the specific limitation to the content to be projected, and the substance of the content to be projected is able to be arbitrarily set according to actual needs.

    [0105] In any one of the above embodiments, preferably, as shown in Figs. 7-11 , a plurality of areas on the light transmitting member 242 are disposed along the circumferential direction of the light transmitting member 242, and the light transmitting member 242 is rotatably mounted on the appliance body 1; or a plurality of areas on the light transmitting member 242 are disposed along the lateral direction of the light transmitting member 242, and the light transmitting member 242 is slidably mounted on the appliance body 1 along the lateral direction (not shown in the embodiment).

On the other hand, a plurality of areas may be disposed along the lateral direction of the light transmitting member 242 (for example, disposed in the horizontal direction), and the light transmitting member 242 is slidably mounted on the appliance body 1 along the lateral direction. Thus, the projection contents of the different areas are able to be placed under the irradiation area of the light emitting source 244 by the lateral sliding of the light transmitting member 242, so that the irradiation area of the light emitting source 244 on the light transmitting member 242 is able to be adjusted.

When the driving member comprises the manual member, it is preferable to expose a portion of the manual member outside the appliance body 1, so that the user is able to push the manual member to achieve the driving movement of the light transmitting member 242. Specifically, for example, the manual member is able to be completely disposed inside the appliance body 1, and then an operation window is provided on the appliance body 1 so that at least a portion of the manual member is able to be exposed through the operation window. Of course, the manual member can also directly extend out of the operating window so that the portion of the manual member is able to be directly located outside the appliance body 1. When the driving member comprises the automatic member, the driving member is able to be completely hidden and mounted in the appliance body 1, and the automatic member does not need to be manually operated, thereby simplifying the workload of the user and improving the usage experience of the user.
