IEC 60335-2-13:2009 deals with the safety of electric deep fat fryers having a recommended maximum quantity of oil not exceeding 5 l, frying pans, woks and other appliances in which oil is used for cooking, and intended for household use and similar use, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V. The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fifth edition of IEC 60335-2-13 are as follows:
- the scope is changed to cover household and similar use;
- additional instructions are added to reflect the content of the scope (7.12).
The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication. This bilingual version (2013-07) corresponds to the monolingual English version, published in 2009-12.
Key words: Appliances, deep fat fryers, frying pans
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60335-1:2010 .
