Introduction to Canadian Patent 38686

Emma L.T. Robertson, of Port Hope (Durham, Ontario), has invented certain new and useful improvements in frying pans. Patents have already been granted on frying pans having a duet or ventage leading into the stove for the purpose of carrying into the fire the odors or emanations arising from the cooking of the contents. In each of these patents is shown a cover entirely closing the top of the pan, which would have to be removed when it was ncessary to attend to the contents. The removal of this cover then breaks the current of the air through the pan to the fire. This lets the fying pan odors to prevade and taint the atmosphere. It seems that these existing patents do not accomplish the result they were constructed for.

Innovative frying pan design

Canadian patent 37676 is Robertson's invention to devise a frying pan and cover by by means of which the odors and emanations arising from the cooking will be carried directly into the fire. The contents of the pan watched and attended to without removing the cover. The invention consists of forming in the pan a duct or ventage leading into the stove, and a cover having an open side to enclose the greater portion of the pan.
