Ceramicx has developed a number of patents for the IR heating of foodstuffs; both domestic and industrial.
Ovens such as custom infrared ovens can be built that will cook foodstuffs in a fraction of conventional time (twenty minutes to roast a chicken, for example) and will also simmer and steady-heat according to need.
The patents that were produced for Applica contain the Ceramicx infrared heat technology design. However Ceramicx retained the rights to these patents for use in the commercial food industry in Europe and are happy to engage with these companies. We also have a number of other patentable ideas available for the white goods industry.
