Figure 13 is a similar view on line l3-13 of Figure 11.

Figure 14 is a diagrammatical view of the electrical circuit embodied in my invention.

In the drawings, in which like numerals denote like parts in the different figures, the numeral 5 denotes my improved cabinet and 6 the cover thereof which is hinged as at 7 and fastened in closed position by means of suitable fasteners 8. A handle 9 is attached to said cover by means of which the said cabinet may be carried.

In general, my improved cabinet comprises a preserving or storage compartment 10, a heating compartment 11 and a miscellaneous storage compartment 12. The compartment 10 is provided with a container 13 having therein a reirigerant 14 such as broken ice, or blocks of material commonly known as dry ice, for the purpose of preserving the material in the storage com partment. The said container 13 is provided with a cover 15 and is removably positioned in said compartment between guide bars 16 which are oppositely secured to the walls of the storage compartment. When the said container is in position, the storage compartment 10 is divided thereby into separate compartments l0-A and 10-B in which such articles as nursing bottles 17 may be stored. Spring retainers 18 of any suitable form are provided within the said storage compartments for the purpose of retaining the said bottles in proper position and against the sides of the container 13.

A heating device 19 is provided within the heating chamber 11 for the purpose of supplying means whereby material may be heated. The said heating device consists generally of a circular cup shaped container 20 in which are supported suitably insulated heating elements 21 and 22. These elements consist of coils. of electrical resistance wire which are spirally supported within the container 20 in a suitable manner, such as by means of clips 23 that are fastened to sheets of insulating material 23-B lining the wall of said container for the purpose of insulating the said elements therefrom as clearly illustrated in Figure 9 of the drawings.

A thermostatic device 24 is provided to automatically regulate the temperature within the said heating container 20 and the same is positioned within a recess 25 provided in the said container near the top thereof.

The terminal contact members 26, 26-A and 26B are attached to the bottom 27 of the container 20 and suitably insulated therefrom in any suitable well known manner. The heating element coils 21 and 22 are electrically connected to said terminals in order that'electrical current may be supplied to said heating elements through .an electrical circuit which will be hereinafter described.

The said heating device is provided with a cover plate 28 having an opening 29 therein thru which a bottle, that is to be heated, may be inserted into said heating device. A circuit closing switch 30, as illustrated in Figures 11 to 13 of the drawings, is positioned in the bottom of the heating compartment 11. This switch is designed to be operated, to close the electrical circuit, when a bottle is inserted in the heating unit to the position shown in Figure 4 of the drawings. The weight of the bottle will press the plunger 31 of the switch, causing a contact between the switch bar 32 and the contact fingers 33 and 34 which are mounted-on posts 35 and 36. The said circuit closing device also has posts 37 and 38 to which wires of the said circuit are attached.

Each of the said posts 35, 3'7 and 38 have secured thereto, at thelr upper ends, one of the QQniiIl-Q spring fingers 39, 40 and 41, which extend outwardly, from the top of the said circuit closing device, above the bottom of the heating compartment and in position to contact with the terminals 26, 26-A and 26-3 above mentioned.

Another circuit closing device 42, as illustrated in Figure 10 of the drawings, is provided in my improved cabinet. This circuit closer comprises a plunger 43 on a bar 44 that is adapted to close a circuit between the contacts 45 and 46 on the binding posts 47 and 48 when the said plunger 43 is pressed inwardly. The said circuit closing device is located in the top or the cabinet 5 in a position where the plunger 43 will be pressed downwardly by the cover 6 of the cabinet when the said cover is closed.

Electrical plug receptacles 49 and 50 are provided at a convenient location and preferably on the outside of the said cabinet in order to receive a suitable connecting plug for the purpose o1 supplying electric current to either of the heating elements 21- or 22 in the heating unit.

The receptacle 49 is of a standard design for receiving current from anordinary house circuit such as usually supplied with a standard voltage and the receptacle 50 is or another standard design for receiving a plug such as commonly used with an electrical circuit or low voltage as usually supplied by an electrical storage battery. By the use of said receptacle plugs and of the two elements, of which one is designed for a high voltage and the other for a low voltage, the heating device of my improved cabinet may be used either at home or while travelling byautomobile, at which time the electrical current can be obtained from the storage battery of the automobile.

I will now describe the electrical circuit which I have provided for my improved cabinet and which is illustrated in Figure 14 of the drawings. As can be clearly seen therefrom, when a. current is connected to the receptacle plug 49, a circuit will be completed thru the wire 51, contact post 3'7, and spring member 40 and terminal 26-1-3 to the resistance element 21, then thru the wire 52, the thermostatic device 24, wire 53, terminal 26, contact spring linger 39, contact 33, switch bar 32, contact 34, wire 54 and then thru the contact 46, bar 44 and contact 45 0! the circuit closer 42, and thru the wire 55 back to receptacle plug 49.

The low voltage circuit runs from the receptacle plug 50 thru wire 56, contact spring 41, resistance 22, wire 57, thermostatic device 24, wire 53, terminal 26, contact spring 39, contact 33, bar 32, contact 34, wire 54, and then thru the contact bar 46, bar 44 and contact 45, of the circuit closer 42 and thru the wire 55 to wire 58 and back to the receptacle plug 50.

It will be readily seen from the above description, and from the illustration, that when the high voltage is connected to the receptacle plug 49 the high voltage resistance coil only will be energized and that, when the low voltage is connected to the receptacle plug 50, only the low voltage resistance 22 will be energized. Regardless of which resistance is energized, the circuit will be controlled by the thermostatic device 24 to regulate automatically the temperature within the heating compartment.

This thermostatic device may be adjusted to vary the temperature so that it will correspond to the amount oi material, such as milk in a nursing bottle, that is to be heated. For inwhich is marked on the cover plate 26. I! 6 ounces or 8 ounces are to be heated the knob 59 is turned to the corresponding numbers on the plate,

when the said knob is turned it moves the contact points 60 of the thermostatic device nearer or farther from the contact 61 on the by-metal- 110 bar 62 by means of the thread on the post 63 on which the said contact 60 is carried. It is to be understood that various types of thermostatic control devices may be used, but since their opera'tion is well unders'toodby those skilled in the art, a more detailed description of the same is considered unnecessary.

The operation and use of my invention is as follows:-

Material is stored in the compartment 10 in which is placed the container 13. This container may be filled with either a cooling element or heating element depending on whether the material stored in the compartment is to be kept hot or cold. When it is desired to heat an article such as a nursing bottle, the same is inserted within the heating unit in the heating compartment 11 and the knob 59 is adjusted to the figure corresponding with the amount oi'milk that is to be heated. When the bottle is inserted in the heating unit, the plunger in the switch 30, at the bottom of the said unit is depressed, closing the electrical circuit at that point. The cover 6 oi. the cabinet is then closed, depressing the plunger 43 or the switch 42 thus closing the circuit at that point also. The electrical current is then connected to the corresponding receptacle plug 49 or 50 thus completing the circuit thru one of the corresponding resistance elements 21 or 22, causing the same to be energized. and thus heating the space within the heating unit wherein the temperature is automatically controlled by the thermostatic device as above described.

It will be noted that my improved cabinet is of a double walled construction providing thermal insulation between the diirerent compartments contained therein. Insulating material 64, such as asbestos wool or the like, may be packed in the space between the walls to provide more efilcient insulation.

The inner walls of the various compartments extend partly above the'outer walls of the cabinet, torming an upwardly extending flange 65 surrounding the top or the compartment 10 and a flange 66 surrounding the tops of compartments 11 and 12. The cover 6 is formed with re-' cesses (Hand 68 which are divided by a rib 69 fitting between the said flanges 65 and 66. By the above described construction of the flange and cover, the passage 01' hot or cold air between one compartment and another is further prevented.

It will also be noted that a partition '10 is provided between the compartments l1 and 12. This partition extends to a height even with the top 01' the flange 66 and comes in contact with the cover, thus preventing the passage oi heat from the compartment 11 to the compartment 12 when the said cover is in closed position.
