    A flask has a body, base, mouth, and one or more indicia to enable preparation of beverages with a desired temperature. Specific embodiments include the preparation of baby formula and tea. The one or more indicia can show one or more levels, quantities, or both. A level or quantity contained within the flask has a proper percentage of liquid, as calculated and so embedded as a feature into the flask, while the corresponding indicium on the flask for the level or quantity shows the total amount of liquid needed, so that the preparation of temperature sensitive beverage with a desired temperature will be convenient and quick. In another aspect, a method for preparing a temperature sensitive beverage fills a flask up to a volume shown by one or more indicia, heats the liquid in the flask, and combines the heated liquid with unheated liquid to attain a beverage with a desired final volume and a desired final temperature.

    The invention is an improvement of the filter unit in beverage makers. Said filter unit comprises a filter insert and a filter lock, can be placed as a whole onto and removed from the brewing container, and at the same time ensures good sealing of all components. For improved handling, the brewing chamber can be filled and closed outside of the beverage-maker, wherein the particularly large depth of the filter insert offers significant assistance. Closing the brewing chamber by means of the filter closure prevents the beverage base material from oozing out due to a ring engaging in the filter insert and additionally ensures its adequate sealing. By widening the brewing chamber, the beverage-making machine provides a consistent quality of the beverages with of different fill levels.

    A dry processing technique for corn includes the stages of cleaning, conditioning, debranning, degerming and grits breaking, and germ screening and grits extracting. The debranning stage includes first stirred debranning, dampening and second stirred debranning in sequence. The dampening stage uses a dampener (9) to add water of 0.5-5% of the corn weight to the corn, the water temperature is 10-60° C., and the stirred debranning stage is performed within 10 minutes after dampening The height of the corn is controlled within 0.5-3 m during the stirred debranning stage. Stirrers (8, 1, 12, 15) are employed, and the linear velocity of the stirring rod is controlled within 1-6 m/S. The process can increase the output rates of the corn grits and corn flour with a fat content less than 1%, and the germ with a purity of more than 80%.

    A device and method to create additional segments of crust and topping zones on baked products such as pizza. The device is a base with a top surface and a bottom surface opposing the top surface and at least one pattern that protrudes from the surface of the base. Before cooking the baked product, the pattern is embossed into uncooked dough. Additional dough may be applied along the pattern on the flattened uncooked dough along the embossed pattern. The newly created crust results in additional segments of crust and topping zones throughout the pizza. Within the new topping zones, singular or combinations of toppings can be applied. Once baked, the product may be sliced along the crust segments, with each individual slice having toppings and a crust section.

    A cooking rack for bacon, or other food products, includes several articulated planar members defining a series of connected V-shaped structures. Each planar member, which may be defined by a plurality of generally parallel wires or other members, is generally porous. Bacon strips are placed on the planar members, and the rack is placed in a cooking vessel. The porosity of the planar members allows air to flow around the bacon during cooking, and allows liquids to fall from the bacon into a vessel below. The V-shaped structures may include spacers which prevent adjacent strips of bacon from touching each other.
