Each of these applications are hereby incorporated by reference in their entirety into the present application.
  • FIELD OF INVENTION
  • [0002]
    This invention relates generally to the field of packaging and more particularly to a packaging with improved reclosable opening which is suitable for household usage, especially for use as packaging for foodstuff in microwave oven.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0003]
    Frozen or shelf stable prepared foods that are intended to be reheated using microwave oven are becoming increasingly popular. Excess food or food being prepared in advance can be packaged and stored. Consumers only need to heat up those packaged food in the microwave oven prior to consuming.
  • [0004]
    During the heating of the food in a microwave oven, the moisture content of the food is rapidly heated and transformed into steam. As the temperature of the packaging increases during heating, the pressure within the packaging increases. Consumers usually puncture holes or cut a corner or pierce holes on the packaging to allow the steam to vent from the packaging during heating.
  • [0005]
    Thus, a packaging having a weakened sealing or a valve which allow the steam to vent during the process of heating would provide an improved method for heating food in microwave oven. In the prior technology, packaging with weakened sealing or valve which allow the steam to escape from the packaging are disclosed. However, these packaging are only suitable for the food manufacturer as it is not practical for a household user to have a thermal sealing machine or a heat sealer to seal it after putting the foodstuff into the packaging.
  • [0006]
    In the present invention, the packaging is modified to cater for the need of household users, who do not have access to a thermal sealing device, by having a reclosable opening, a diverting means and weakened sealing on the packaging. A reclosable opening functions as an opening for inserting the object, especially foodstuff into the packaging. The packaging can be closed up by reclosable opening to store, without using heat sealing or other adhesive. On the other hand, a diverting means is predisposed in such a manner and having a dimension sufficient to cover the reclosable opening. The diverting means is joined with main packaging sheets at the upper portion to direct airflow away from the reclosable opening. When the increased internal air pressure builds up to a critical point, the weakened sealing ruptures to allow air to vent through.
  • BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0007]

  • [0032]
    FIG. 1 shows the top view of a packaging of the current invention. According to the present invention, flexible three-side-sealed pouch (100) is one form of the preferred embodiment. The flexible three-side-sealed pouch consists of a packaging body comprising an upper front main packaging sheet (102), a lower front main packaging sheet (201) and a back main packaging sheet (not shown) which are sealed together to form an edge-to edge sealing, reclosable opening (101) preferably zipper, a diverting means (103) and weakened sealing (104). The zipper (101) is predisposed in such a manner to be covered by the diverting means (103). In accordance with current invention, FIG. 1 also illustrates a diverting means (103), which is predisposed in such a manner and having a dimension sufficient to cover the reclosable opening (101) to direct airflow away from the reclosable opening (101) when there is an increase in internal air pressure. When the increased internal air pressure builds up to a critical point, packaging will rupture at the weakened sealing (104) to allow the air to vent through. The critical point is reached when the internal air pressure is greater than external air pressure to a sufficient extent to rupture the weakened sealing (104).
  • [0033]
    In the practice of current invention, the diverting means (103) is an extended part from the upper front main packaging sheet (102). The diverting means (103) can also be another film, which sealed between the upper front main packaging sheet (102) and back main packaging sheet form a flange or flap. According to the current invention, the front main packaging sheet (102) and its extended part, the diverting means (103) is made of a first material. In another preferred embodiment, front main packaging sheet (102) and its extended part, the diverting means (103), may be made of second material as shown in FIG. 6.1. The sealing between the front main packaging sheet (102) and back main packaging sheet will thus become the weakened sealing (104) in FIG. 6.1.
  • [0034]
    To accomplish an important function of the invention, there is shown in FIG. 1, a weakened sealing (104), created by disposing of a film made of a second material. The film is disposed between two layers of the main packaging sheet, preferably on the top part of edge-to-edge sealing. The sealing between the second material with any one of main packaging sheet is weaker than the sealing among the main packaging sheets. The edge-to-edge sealing will be further discussed in FIG. 8.
  • [0035]
    The weakened sealing (104) can also be a seal with a width smaller than the sealing width of the rest of the edge-to-edge sealing as shown in FIG. 2. FIG. 2 shows the top sealing area, the weakened sealing (104) with sealing width smaller than other sealing area, wherein the sealing bar used to create top sealing is having a width smaller than the sealing bar for other sealing areas. The smaller sealing width is weaker compared to a sealing, which is sealed by the same means but with wider sealing.
