Heated viewing window of a fryer
In fryers and other cooking appliances comprising a viewing window, it is problematic that the viewing window becomes steamed up during the frying/cooking process.
When heating means are provided to heat the viewing window to a temperature higher than 100°C, this can be counteracted. This is based on the insight, that steam will not condense to a surface, which has a temperature above 100°C.
The heating means may for example comprise may comprise film heating provided on the viewing window, heating wire in the window, or a lamp directed on the window.
In the hinge of the lid of the appliance an electric contact may be provided which is in contact with the heating means.
