Abstract

Ever-changing work expects technological advancement in all the tasks carried out by humans. Cooking is one such process, which is presently majorly carried out by human beings. Though a lot of automation has been happening in the area of food processing, involving a larger quantity of food production in a commercial or institutional setup. But very less automation is adapted in domestic or household cooking. In the proposed work, we propose to manufacture a system involving computers and electro-mechanical components for cooking two of the most widely consumed Indian delicacies Dosa (Pancake) and Idli (Rice cake). Reported work discusses the detailed mechanical fabrication of the device, including the process of automation implemented on Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). A detailed comparison is tabulated comparing the similar product to highlight the working of the proposed system
