Prevent Kitchen Fires by Automatically Powering-Off Stove if Left Unattended

July 20, 2012 Leave a comment

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) estimated that in 2010 there were 156,400 cooking related home fires and the leading contributor to these was unattended stovetops. This is something that can happen to anyone because you never know when a distraction will arise that pulls you away from the kitchen for longer than expected. It could be a phone call you weren’t expecting but need to take, someone at the door, a child requiring your undivided attention and the list goes on and on. Here to help protect you when these distractions occur is the CookStop 3 Prong Plug In Kit which acts as a fire prevention aid for an electric stove. Once installed, the control unit’s motion sensor will monitor the movement in the kitchen whenever the stove is turned on. As movement is detected it will reset the 5 minute count down timer and continue this process as long as someone is in the kitchen. If, however, the person cooking ends up being pulled out of the kitchen for longer than 5 minutes then the CookStop device will automatically shut-off power to the stove to prevent overheating and potential fire. The CookStop 3 Prong Kit is not only great for residential home use but also dorms, apartments, senior living homes and office buildings where distraction is easy.
