No. 792,506. PATENTED JUNE 13, 1905..



APPLIOATION FILED 1030.11, 1903.

UNITED STATES Patented June 13, 1905.



I SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 792,506, dated June 13, 1905. Application filed December 11, 1903. Serial No. 184,760.

To all whom, it Huey concern:

Be it known that I, JOHN HENRY DOYLE, a

citizen of the United States, and a resident of New Orleans, in the parish of Orleans and State of Louisiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Domestic Utensils for Cooling Liquids, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to domestic utensils for cooling liquids.

It has for its object to provide a cover for domestic utensils having a hollow cooling attachment projecting therefrom into the uten sil and adapted to have water forced therethrough for the purpose of cooling the contents of the utensil.

It has for a further object to provide a device of the character set forth combining advantages in point of eflectiveness, cheapness, simplicity, and general utility.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a vertical sectional view of a vessel having acover applied theron provided with my cooling attachment. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the cover and cooling attachment. Figs. 3 and 4 are perspective views of different forms of connections between a faucet and the inlet of the cooling attachment. Fig. 5 is a perspective view of a form of connection between the outlet to the cooling attachment and the outlet of a sink.

Corresponding parts in all the figures are denoted by the same reference character.

Referring to the drawings, 1 designates the utensil, and 2 the cover thereof having my cooling attachment thereon, comprisingacoil of pipe 3, one end of which is connected with the inlethole 4 in the cover by means of screw-threads thereon engaging screw-threads in said hole and the other end connected to the outlet-hole 5. For the purpose of forcing water therethrough a flexible pipe connection 6 is employed, one end being provided with a metallic threaded nipple adapted to be screwed into the inlet-hole in the cover and the other end slipped onto a faucet, and for the purpose of leading the water therefrom a flexible pipe 7 is employed, one end provided with a metallic nipple adapted to be screwed into the outlet-hole in the cover.

In the form of inlet connection shown by Fig. 3, 15 designatesa pipe having the end 16 screwthreaded to adapt it for engagement with the inlet-hole in the cover and the end 17 flared for insertion over a faucet.

In the form of outlet connection shown by Fig. 4, l8 designates a flexible tube one end of which is provided with a metallic threaded nipple adapted to be screwed into the outlethole of the cover and the other end with a circular flange 19, adapted to fit around the outlet-hole of a sink.

The operation is as follows: It being assumed that jelly has been placed in the utensil in a hot state, the cover is placed on, thereby projecting the coiled pipe into the jelly, the upper end of the flexible pipe connection 6 is then forced over a faucet and the water turned on, whereupon it will be forced through the coiled pipe and out the flexible pipe connection 7 Of course it will be understood if it is desired to heat the contents of the utensil it will only be necessary to slip the upper end of the flexible pipe connection 6 over the hot-water faucet.

I do not desire to be understood as limiting myself to the details of construction and arrangement as herein described and illustrated, as it is manifest that variations and modifications may be made in the features of construction and arrangement in the adaptation of the device to various conditions of use without departing from the spirit and scope of my invention and improvements. I therefore reserve the right to all such variations and modiflcations as properly fall within the scope of my invention and the terms of the following claim.

The vessel or utensil is preferably of metal and cylindrical in form, and the cover or lid thereof is freely attachable to and detachable from the same, as shown. The openings 4 and 5 of the cover, in which the ends of the pipe-coil 3 are fitted, are in direct transverse alinement with the center of the cover, so that the weight of the water or other fluid passing through the coil will be equally distributed with reference to the cover and the latter thereby held in place without undue binding thereof at any one part more than another.

The handle for the cover is located centrally between the openings a and 5, and it will thus be seen that the cover, together with the coil and the flexible pipes connecting therewith, may all be readily and freely placed in position at one and the same time and may be removed in like manner; The cover is flat, so as to cheapen and simplify the construction thereof, as well as to facilitate the placing and removal of the other parts referred to.

Having thus described my invention, 1 claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent- A cylindrical metal vessel provided with a freely attachable and detachable flat cover having openings therethrough on opposite sides of and in direct transverse alinement with the center thereof, and provided between the openings with a handle, a coil for a fluid disposed horizontally Within the vessel, and having its terminal portions fitting in said openings from the under side of the cover, and flexible inlet and outlet pipes each having an end portion thereof fitting in one of the openings from the upper side of the cover, said pipes having communication with the coil, in the manner and for the purpose set forth. In testimony whereof I have signed my name in the presence of the subscribing witnesses.
