Multi-layer-plate (MLP) provides improved thermal, chemical and mechanical properties. High temperature degree, uniform Temperature Distribution (TD), heat capacity and inertness of utensil material are significant parameters in cooking. In this study the main objective is analysis of the TD all over the two different structure of cookware. Analyzed structures have different behavior so we can use them in different propose. In another part we concerned about heat loss from heated cookware. We compared the insulated pan with non-insulated pan. Based on results the insulator improved the heat retaining of pan. It reduces the energy consumption. We employed Finite Element Method (FEM) for analyzing transient thermal behavior of models.
Keywords: temperature distribution; finite element method; cookware; bi-layer plate
