stove with timed turn-off?

Post by brandy » Thu Mar 26, 2020 2:26 pm

Kitchen fires are a major cause of house destruction.
Are there any stoves that have a timer on at least one burner--preferably a small one--so it can be set to either minutes or even hours an then turns itself off?

I don't know the answer to your question but I have changed some things in my kitchen. Instead of a stove top kettle, I use an electric kettle that shuts off automatically. No more forgetting that kettle is on stove when the phone rings or that text comes in that distracts you.

Great question.
I use an electric countertop oven and an induction hotplate with a timer for these options. I have often wondered why more ranges and other appliances don't have timer options as a safety feature.

I know nothing about the product but it looks like this company has models for gas and electric stoves --- https://iguardfire.com/?v=4326ce96e26c
I guess it all could be much worse. | They could be warming up my hearse.

Our kenmore glass top electric range has both a timer and "sensa something". Sensa something turns off the burner if there is no pan on it.

I use a microwave to heat things, including water for beverages, soups, left-overs, etc.
I looked into an induction hotplate a couple of years ago, but apparently it makes a LOT of noise, so didn't get one. Is that true? Even on the video, it sounds noisy then they turned it off... ARE they noisy?
I do stove top cooking and have searched for an affordable (to me) reliable timer, even one that's heavy enough to use with an electric skillet and slow cooker, and plug into the wall.
I googled skillets with timers, but didn't see any.
I've tried TWO fireaverts, couldn't get either to work. These are pretty expensive to have only a one year warranty. Haven't tried the iGuard.
I have a 30 minute timer to use with 15 amp things.

A gas stove with mechanical knobs? I've never seen such. It'd have to physically turn the valve off or interrupt the flow of gas.

The device linked earlier looks very innovative.

My parent's electrically controlled gas oven has an auto off timer.

Electric? No experience.

Edit: just looked at the pricing for that gas valve.... $700???

Some Empava gas appliances have timers that need to be set for the ovens to operate.

My induction cooktop ( a single standalone one from Amazon, a good one though) is pretty quiet. Once and a while there is a slight whistle, but if I stir it a bit it stops. I like it a lot.

Do you know the brand and, ideally, model?

Off timer for oven, not cooktop.

My oven has an off timer but I've never seen that for stovetop burners. Are you afraid you will forget something is on the stovetop? Use a timer. Of course there are all kinds of timers you can buy that are mechanical or electronic, but I use my Google Home. Assuming you have wifi, they are cheap (can be head for $30) and you can set timers via voice. You can have multiple timers. Ranges often have timers as do microwaves too that can be used.

Gas range cooktop. 6 burner.
I wish there was an auto shutoff feature as well.

Although my range has an auto reminder feature in our home.
"Dear. . . did you turn off the stove?"
"Dear. . you left the stove on again. . . . :confused

As another user pointed out, the timer is for the oven only. Not he top burners. Whirlpool though. It's >10 years old. Electronic keypad.

What model range is that? I'm guessing it's not from Home Depot... :)
