Claims:
1. “THERMAL KNIFE FOR BUTTER AND DERIVATIVES” comprising a resistor compartment, hereinafter called a spreader (01) with low voltage resistor (02) inserted inside it, this unit is fixed to the handle (03) made up of a battery compartment (04) on the underside of the handle (03), an on/off button (05) and a warning light (06) on the upper side of the handle (03). It is characterised by the fact that on switching on the on/off button (05) the warning light (06) lights up indicating “in use” and the spreader (01) reaches sufficient temperature to handle the butter and derivatives easily without altering the taste and quality of the product.

Description:

This utility model patent is for a model of knife with inserted electric resistance to facilitate consumption of refrigerated foods such as butter and derivatives.

There are electric knives and knives with different types of surfaces and cutting edges but there is no knife similar to the one described above.

We can confirm it is inconvenient that butter and its derivatives are stored under refrigeration to preserve their nutritional properties and this makes them difficult to handle because in a refrigerated state the product is solid.

To achieve the necessary creaminess of butter and its derivatives and the fastest handling, a microwave or bain-marie is used or knife points are heated, endangering the health and safety of whoever uses these methods.

Taking into account the difficulty in handling butter and derivatives in a refrigerated state, a model of “THERMAL KNIFE FOR BUTTER AND DERIVATIVES” was developed, covered by this patent. It comprises a spreader with in-built low voltage electric resistor, a handle with battery compartment, on/off button and warning light which advises, when the button is switched on, that the resistor inside the spreader has reached sufficient temperature to handle the butter and its derivatives easily without altering the taste and consistency of the product.

The attached drawings show the construction of the THERMAL KNIFE FOR BUTTER AND DERIVATIVES, covered by this patent in which.

FIG. 1 shows an exploded view of the knife;

FIG. 2 shows the compartment for the resistor, called spreader;

FIG. 3 shows the low voltage resistor;

FIG. 4 shows the handle;

FIG. 5 shows the handle with the on/off button, light and spreader;

FIG. 6 shows the handle, battery compartment and spreader.

As illustrated in the above figures, the “THERMAL KNIFE FOR BUTTER AND DERIVATIVES” model covered by this patent, comprises a resistor compartment (2), spreader (1) made of aluminium, polytetrafluorethylene (Teflon), polystyrene, plastic or any similar material, a low voltage resistor (2) inserted inside the spreader (1), connected to a handle (03) made of aluminium, polytetrafluorethylene (Teflon), polystyrene, plastic or any similar material, consisting of a battery compartment (04) in the underside of the handle (03), on/off button (05) and a warning light (06) in the upper side of the handle (03). When the on/off button (05) is switched on the resistor (02) reaches sufficient temperature to handle the refrigerated butter and derivatives easily without altering the taste and quality of the product. It is logical that the THERMAL KNIFE FOR BUTTER AND DERIVATIVES” constructed in this way can be made available in various sizes to meet users' different needs.
