SmartElement™ is designed to be hardwired into electric coil stoves/ranges and must be professionally installed. For a do‐it‐yourself residential plug in version that installs in seconds please see our SmartBurner™ product.
SmartElement with its patented temperature limiting control (TLC) technology controls the temperature of stovetops keeping it below the auto-ignition point of cooking oils and many common household materials. How does it do this? By shutting off the burner element when the temperature reaches about 350°C/662°F. When the element has cooled to below that threshold, the burner turns back on again. Think of it like a furnace for cooking. Just as your furnace turns on and off to regulate the temperature in your home, SMARTElement regulates the cooking temperature of your stovetop.
