Have you ever had a fire in your home? What if I told you there was a way to help stop oven fires before they ever start? Most house fires occur because of a lack of attention. Simple changes can help prevent you from the devastating effect of a house fire.
Mark and I LOVE watching Shark Tank. With my interest in marketing and Mark’s interest in new ideas, it’s a fun show that we can both get into. Some products make us shake our heads, some make us hungry, and others have us looking at the product website to see if we can fit it in our budget. We’ll sit there and guess which Shark might give the entrepreneur a deal and whether they’ll follow through after the show.
One deal we were thrilled to see go through was FireAvert. A simple plug-in for your stove that will auto shut-off your stove in case of fire.
How does it work? Simple really! When your smoke alarm goes off, the FireAvert responds by cutting power to your stove. In case of a fire, you won’t be worrying about turning the stove off because it’s already off. More likely, though, because smoke comes before a fire, your stove will shut off before the fire ever starts.
Having experienced a few house fires myself, this product is golden! When I saw it on Shark Tank, I knew it had to get a deal. Stove Fires are the #1 cause of house fires in the US! Who wouldn’t invest in a product that would benefit every home in America?
While fairly simple to install, being familiar with your home’s electrical breakers will be beneficial. You’ll need to cut power, for your safety, to the stove before plugging it in. Once plugged in, follow the easy to understand directions for syncing your FireAvert with the smoke detectors you already have. Now would be a great time to check the battery in your smoke detectors as well.
While a bit of an initial investment on Amazon, I believe it’s a peace of mind money can buy! The only downside I currently see to FireAvert is that they only work on electrical stoves. As a gas stove loving girl, I hope to see a future product for gas stoves. I’ve been told they’re working on it and hope to eventually have something for gas stoves.
