Safe Electric Stove

SAFE ELECTRIC STOVE is a stove that enhanced the ‘safety’ and ‘energy efficiency’. It uses the heat-resistant silicon surface instead of ceramics glass. There are shape memory alloy spring units under the silicon and the surface is pressed down along the shape of the pot. So user can use various kinds of pots and arrange them flexibly. The stove heats up only the spot where pots are placed. The pressed down surface holds the pot and prevents it from slipping on the surface. Until the heated spring gets cool enough, the surface maintains the lowered shape so that user can recognize intuitively whether the stove is hot or not.
