BASIING COVER FOR ROASTING FANS.
'APPLICATIQN FILED JUNE 9, 1921.

1 UNITED STAT CATHERINE mernnor DETROIT, mrcnroan L j f 'nAsrrnecovnn son ma ma IPANS.
T0 aZZ whom it may concern.
Be it known that I, CATHERINE A. GILL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, have invented a new and useful Bastin Cover for Roasting Pans, of which the fol owing is a specification.
This invention relates to culinary utensils and particularly to covers for roasting pans.
The object of the invention is to provide a cover for roasting pans, which, while serving as a closure for the pan to prevent the escape of moisture arising in the form of steam or vapor, as from a roast of beef, fowl or the like, will also function to collect and condense such moisture and to distribute the liquid condensation in the form of drops uniformly over the surface of the roast, as in the ractice of basting to prevent burning or rying out with consequent loss of the nutritious contents. i
In attaining this object the invention contemplates forming the cover, which is preferably oval in shape, by stamping the body and end or head integrally from a single sheet of metal, said head being depressed or concaved centrally within the body and having" struck upon the inner face thereof a plurality of depending ribs radially extending from a central area to a peripheral margin of said head. Within said central area there is also depressed a plurality of semi-spherical knobs distributed and disposed to adjoin the terminals of one or more of said ribs, and which are adapted to serve as dripping points from which the liquid condensation conducted thereto by said ribs is discharged upon the surface of a roas enclosed beneath said cover.
A preferred embodiment of the invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein, p
Fig. 1 is a plan View of the improved cover.
Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal vertical sectional view of the same. 7
Fig. 3 is a view of the cover in central transverse section, I
As is usual with articles of this character, the improved cover is formed of sheet metal substantially elliptical in shape and comprises the top or head 1 and deep marginal flange or body 2. Said body at its lower edge is return-bent and projected slightly outwardly as indicated at 3 to form a seat to engage the pan as indicated by dotted Specification of Letters Patent: Pate ted A 25 .1922;

slightly dished or concaved and is provided with a considerable number of ribs 4: upon its under surface, which may be formed by indenting the upper face of said cover, said ribs being spaced and distributed to radiate from a central to the peripheral portion of the top. At the inner ends of said ribs, conical depressions or semi-spherical knobs lines Fig. 2. The top 1 of the cover is i 5 are formed, the same being symmetrically distributed throughout the central portion of the cover. The function of said ribs is to conduct the drops of liquid condensing and gatherin upon the top 1 to the center portion of t e cover, the inclination of the ribs the cover, saidknobs having a depth somewhat greater than thatof the ribs 4, so as to receive the drops of liquid guided by the ribs and to establish definite dripping points.
A roaster provided with a cover constructed as above described is rendered self-bast- 3 ing, the basting being accomplished by the liquid condensing upon the top 1, flowing on the ribs 4 and dripping from the knobs 5. Because of the uniform distribution of these ribs and knobs throughout the ,central portion of the top, the condensed liquid is caused to dripupon the entire central portion of the roast so as to flow thereover and maintain the surface of the same continually moistened, and thus prevent drying out of the nutritious juices.
It is a desirable feature of the described construction that it is not necessary to maintain the roasting pan and its cover accurately leveled to insure proper functioning of the cover to effect basting. A slight inclination of the pan and cover will not be suflicient to counteract the guiding inclination of the ribs 4, resulting from the dished formation'of the top 1.
What I claim is:
*1. A roastin pan cover having a dished top, formed with a plurality of ribs upon its under surface radiating from a central portion of said top and formed at the inner projections for guiding condensed vapor to said knobs from the area of the top "surrounding said central :portion.
3. A roasting pan cover having a dished 5 top and a plurality of depending knobs-distributed upon the central portion of the under face -of;said "top, said knobs-forming from the surrounding portion of the top to 10 said dripping points. 7
In testim'ony'whereof I sign this specification.
