- What's Included
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 Direct Wire 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 Direct Wire Kit is not only great for residential home use but also dorms, apartments, senior living homes and office buildings where distraction is easy.
The CookStop Direct Wire Kit is designed for homes and buildings with built-in cook tops. Rather than plugging into a socket, these cook tops are typically wired directly to the home's wiring. CookStop has created a power unit that is wired into a standard electrical junction box for these types of installations. The Direct Wire Kit should be installed by a qualified electrician.
The CookStop Kit is also available in the following models, sold separately:
The CookStop control unit is preprogrammed to automatically shut-off the stove if left unattended for more than 5 minutes. This however can be adjusted when needed for meals that are slow cooking and do not require someone to be in the kitchen consistently. The control unit can also be programmed with lockout times in which the stove will be unable to power on without an override. This feature is ideal for families with young children or for seniors who would require the assistance of someone else to help or be nearby.
