Gas and electric cooktops should have automatic shut-off timers on them such as microwave ovens have. Think of all the increased safety with automatic shut-off features. No more ruined meals, houses and apartment kitchen fires, ruined pots and pans, etc.
The new cooktops with wireless apps could be turned on an off by even a cell phone. How many times do we get distracted while cooking with kids, phone calls, other things to do.
This appliance is needed and is long over due, especially, with an aging baby boomer generation.
Thank you in advance for your time, interest and support.
