Cooking should be a source of joy, not concern.
StovMinder® is designed to allow those who love to cook, but occasionally might be forgetful, to cook with a minimum risk of stove fires, which are a major cause of kitchen and building fires.
Whether it is you, or someone you love, StovMinder® is designed to alert you if something has distracted you away from the stove for a period long enough to cause a potential concern. This alert allows them to return to the stove, and tend to it, greatly reducing the likelihood of a stove fire. The videos give additional details on how it works.
Several patents have been issued for the StovMinder® technology. The issued patents are numbered: 9739489, 9389020, 8921743, and 8610036 and may be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netahtml/PTO/srchnum.htm
