The NEW SmartBurner™ intelligent cooking system provides all the features and benefits of the original Safe-T-element™, now available to the general public and can be installed by anyone.

Celebrity Chef David Rocco has called the product ‘brilliant’ and a must have for anyone who owns an electric coil stove. Why? Simple. It cooks food better. With a more even heat, food is less likely to burn or cook unevenly. It allows for easier and faster cleaning with no chance of food falling in between the coils. It saves money by reducing the amount of energy needed to cook food AND it substantially reduces the number one cause of household fires – cooking fire.

SmartBurner is a new, state‐of‐the art consumer version of the highly praised commercial product Safe-T-element. Finally, individual households can transform their old electric coil stoves and ranges in seconds. Looks Smart. Cooks Smart. Saves Smart.

Safe T Sensor™ is engineered to help prevent microwave fires and nuisance/false alarms by interrupting power to the microwave at the first sign of smoke.

Helps prevent false alarms that result in:
Building evacuations—not practical or safe to evacuate seniors, hospital patients, students, hotel guests, offices (loss of productivity) etc.
Fire department responses—costly and put firefighters and private citizens at risk.
Tenant apathy—the third time the alarm trips in the middle of the night or otherwise people stop getting out of bed or evacuating.
Proven Technology:
Installed in university dorm rooms, hospitals, seniors homes and office buildings throughout North America.
Significantly reduces nuisance calls/fire runs and saves money (a lot of money).
Presently a simple plug and play aftermarket solution—in time will be an integral component of microwave ovens.

Pioneering Technology Corporation is proud to introduce RangeMinder, state‐of‐the-art technology that has been designed and engineered in Canada and will help prevent unattended cooking fires throughout North America. Compatible with most major brands of gas, ceramic and electric coil stovetops, RangeMinder™ remembers you are cooking even when you forget.
