has for the primary object the provision of a sim
ple and inexpensive device of this character in
which various kinds of vegetables may be easily
from the vegetables and pass through the screen
and quickly washed of foreign matter, the latter
passing to a sump which may be conveniently
emptied.
vention consists in certain novel features of con
10 struction, combination and arrangement of parts
to be hereinafter more fully described and
claimed.
For a complete understanding of my inven

vegetables being left in the body may then drain
free of water.
Having described the invention, I claim:
1. A vegetable washer comprising a body hav
ing a side wall provided with an opening, a screen
disposed within said body, a partition supported
within the body below said screen and provided
with a horizontally disposed ?ange throughout lo
the greater portion of its periphery having its
ends terminating short of said opening, said par
tition being concave and sloping toward said
opening to provide a sump, said partition being
provided with raised portions at each side of the 20
opening adjacent to and outwardly of the ends
of said ?ange, whereby a restricted passage is
formed adjacent the opening having a size sub
stantially equal to the size of the opening, the
highest points of said raised portions being in the
same horizontal plane as the ?ange, and said
raised portions and ?ange adapted to engage said
screen and support the latter in a horizontal
plane above said opening.
the body i is positioned on a support in a verti
2. A vegetable washer comprising a body hav
cal position and located adjacent the lower end
ing a side wall provided with an opening, a screen
of the body is a partition 2 forming an integral
part of the body and sloping towards an opening
3 formed in the body. The Walls of the opening
disposed within said body, a partition supported
within the body below said screen and provided
35 are beveled to be engaged by a gasket 4 carried
by a hinged door 5. The door at one end is hinged
to the body and is equipped with a latch member
6 capable of being moved into engagement with
the keeper 1 carried by the body for retaining the
40 door in a closed position. A portion of the door
is of an increased thickness, as shown at 8, and is
of substantially tenon-shape to fit Within a cor
respondingly shaped opening of the gasket 4.
With the door in a closed position leakage from
45 the sump will be prevented.
The partition 2 is concaved, as, shown in Fig
ures 2 and 3 to provide the desired slope towards
the opening 3 and to form the sump.
Removable from the body and resting upon the
0 partition is a screen 9. The body is equipped with
handles ID to facilitate carrying of the device.
In operation, the body is partly ?lled with
water and the vegetables are placed therein rest
ing upon the screen 9. By agitating the vegeta
