2 Claims. This invention is a division or our original applicationi for Cooking stove or range, Serial No.. 586,912, filed January 15, 1932, which is now Patent No. 2,013,931, issued September 10, 1935,
and relates generally to gas or electric cooking apparatus and particularly to a combination oven, broiler and table-top and straight line range or stove and is designed to provide a'construction in which a maximum cooking space and work top area are provided in association with a relatively smaller low oven and low. broiler.
An important feature resides in the particular construction of the combined oven and broiler compartments, whereby they are closed by a 18 single door, constructed to control and operate at will, the sliding movements of a broiler pan carrying support when said door is opened and 7 closed. 4
Another feature resides in the particular broilgo er pan supporting mechanism and the means associated with it, whereby it may be anti-frictionally and slidably mounted either for hand or automatic operation."
' Another feature resides in the constructionof I a rack carrying sliding support for cooking vessels within the low oven and whereby said rack .may be antifrictionally mounted for easy operation into and out of the low oven.
a A further important feature is that of the par- 80 ticular arrangement of the broiler compartment immediately over the low oven compartment, whereby the person using the range need not be compelled to stoop or bend over to examine an otherwise handle or have access to the broiler pan,
i I the construction being such that the broiler compartment is approximately on the waist level of the operator. To our knowledge the prior practice has been to arrange the broiler either at the top of a high-type oven or below the same. In the accompanying drawings,
. Figure 1 is a perspective view of the range with the top entirely closed, but showing. the oven and broiler compartment door open and the broiler pan and support moved outwardly by the said door;
Figure 2 is "a vertical section through the range,

Figure 7 is a detail view of the of the broiler pan, and
Figure 8 is a detail view of the supporting end of the oven rack.
Referring now to the drawings by numerals of reference, i indicates generally the stove or range, the combined cooking and table-top at 2, and the low oven at 3.
With particular reference to Figures 1 and 2, we have shown the main body portion of the range, which includes the said low 'oven as supporting the cookingand table-top 2, the latter being of an elongated rectangular form and including a-front portion, generally indicated at 4, side plate members 5 and a rear plate member I.
These members 4, 5 and 6 provide compartsupporting end ments 1 and II, the former of which housesburners I connected with a transverse centrally disposed manifold 9, thevalves III for whichare controlled through the medium of operating rods -l I, which extend through the forward compartment [2 and through a panel II, where they are operated by handles ll in a manner fully described in our copending application, Serial Number 570,675, filed October 23, 1931. The rear compartment 1 which houses the burners and associated parts maybe separated from the forward compartment by a central longitudinal partition 1' of the nature described in said application. 7
The forward compartment may contain drawers l5 suitably mounted in any preferred and conbeing counter-balanced by a tension spring 20.
The rear burner compartment is suitably ventilated for cooling purposes by providing the rear plate 8 with openings 2|. I
ventional manner and may serve to receive kitch- At its from; edge, the forward longitudinal work or table top section is provided with a hinged leaf 22, said leaf being coextensive in width and length to that of the work section which at times it is adapted to cover as shown in Figure 1.
One of the principal features of the present invention relates to a construction in which the combined cooking and table-top is considerably wider than the low supporting oven, so that the former extends laterally upon each 'side of the side walls of the oven, as clearly illustrated b1- several of the figures. and particularly in Figure 3, in which the lower edges of the walls deflning the combined'top are provided with rectangular angle iron frames 24 and 24' through which it is suitably mounted upon the body of the low oven. The construction and arrangement affords a maximum cooking and working top surface with an oven body relatively smallerin width.
Referring now to the low oven construction, it will be observed that it is provided with side and rear insulated walls 21 and-23 respectively.
and a front downwardly swinging insulated door the atmosphere through openings 40 in .the back .adaptable under certain conditions for cooperation with the guide rollers 50 mounted upon the of the oven body. Similarly, the oven compartment is ventilated through a duct 4i formed between the bottom of the floor partition 33 and a spaced plate 42, the fumes and gases given oil. during cooking being passed through openings 43 in said plate 42 and to the atmosphere through an opening 44 leading to the filter 45.-
Arranged within the broiler compartment is a brofler pan supporting device comprising a slidable bar 46 in the form of an inverted T.
said bar being formed at its front -end with a pan supporting bracket 41, said bracket having a forwardly and upwardly extending arcuate or curvilinear flanged guide member 43, which is innerend of the arm ll of a vertically movable broiler pan pull-out" device l 2.l
The broiler "pull-out" device is provided with a vertical guide post 53 which slides within a recess 54 in the swinging door and is limited in its reciprocatory motion-to the extent of the wid of the slot 55 in said door. In normal podti n, through pressure of the coiled com-' pression spring 53, housed in the lower end of Q the recess .54, the pull-out" device will bemaintained at the upper end of the slot II, and the guide rollers'out of engagement with the flanges of the curvilinear guidevmember 43 and at such time the door "may be opened without pulling out the broiler pan support and access may be .had to the lower oven compartment in the usual manner.
Whenitisdesiredtopullthebroiierpan support and with it the pan, out of the broiler compartment 3i, the operator, by pressing downwardly upon a thumb-piece I! or similar member rigid with the "pull-cu device '2, causes engagement of the guide rollers 33 with the -out of the oven compartment.
flanges 43: then, swinging the door downwardly will result in the rollers following down the.
flanges and pulling out the broiler pan support, much in the manner of the operation set forth in our copending application Serial Number 570,675, flled October 23, 1931-, which is now Patent No. 1,974,222, issued September 18, 1934.
The broiler pan, shown at 59, is provided upon one end with a bracket 60, rigid therewith, and
comprising a portion 6i having openings 82 which receive the books 63 of one 'of a series of.
vertically disposed notched or recessed portions 34 formed in a pair of parallel" vertical plates 35, preferably integral withthe web of the bracket 4'|. The brace 66 of the bracket serves to support the pan in horizontal position by resting against the edges of said plates v85. I
Obviously, the pan may be placed at the desired vertical elevation with respect to the broiler burner 33 by simply tilting said pan upwardly upon its support and thenlifting it off and placing it upon the lower or upper of the vertical series of hooks 63.
It maybe here remarked that the horizontal floor partition 30, which includes the spaced plate 42, is supported upon rails 68 on the inner side plates 69 of the oven side walls 21.
To guide the slidable bar 48,- which supports the broiler pan carrying bracket 41, we provide on the surface of the floor 30 of the broiler compartment, a channel trackway Ill having opposed inwardly directed flanges Ii, which overhang the lateral flanges of the T-bar, the latter at its rear end being proVided with antifriction rollers 12 which move in the channel trackway. Journaled in the floor 30, toward its forward end and having itsperiphery lying within the trackway, is an anti-friction bearing roller 13, which with the rollers 12 permit the rack to be moved intoand out of the oven without frictional engagement with stationary parts of the structure. 1
A very similar arrangement is employed for supporting a slidable hanging rack carrier 14 for the low oven compartment 32. Mounted upon the inner plate 42 and extending centrally thereof in the direction of the depth of the oven, as in the case of the broiler compartment, is a channel trackway 15, the, rack carrier comprising a T-shaped bar 16, slidable therein. -The slide bar, at its rear end, is provided with an anti-friction roller 11, while the trackway .at its forward end is provided with a pair of antif'riction rollers It for the purpose of allowing the hanging rack to be easily moved into and The slidable bar 16 is provided .at its rear end with a depending rigid if-shaped rack carrier II and has a vertical series of recesses 80, each in the form of a bayonet slot for the purpose of supporting at the desired elevation within the oven compartment one or more cooking utensil holding racks 8 I ll, rest against the rear vertical flanges I! there of and thereby braces the rackso.'that it is maintained horizontally. The bar It is also provided at its forward end with a flnger hold or other suitable device 32, wherebyit and the rack carrier and racks may be moved out of the oven when the door is open. s
It will thus be seen that with the arrangement shown, we have combined within a single main compartment, a broiler compartment and an oven I Each rack at-its rear is pro vided with downward extensions 32', which, when .the rack is'in position on the depending carrier compartment, both of which are closed by a single swinging door and which door is provided with means cooperating with one of said compartments, whereby at the will of the operator,
, abroiler pan mayor may not be withdrawn oven compartment burner 34 is connected with said manifold by piping 86. The oven burner 34 is' arranged within a bottom compartment 81 to which access may be had through a removable panel 88, the entire range structure being supported by appropriate Tgs 90.
ably disposed within said broiler compartment,
3 What we claim is: g 1. In a cooking range, an oven, a broiler compartment above said oven and separated therefrom by a partition, 9. broiler pan support mova single door for said oven and said broiler compartment, and means supported by said door for moving said broiler pan support out of said broiler compartment when said door is opened.
2, In a cooking range, an oven, a broiler comm partment above said oven and separated therefrom by a partition, a broiler pan support slid-' ably mounted within said broiler compartment,
