Talking Trivet/Oven Mitt

The talking trivet and oven mitt are digital enhancements of common household objects. By communicating important messages about a food's temperature, they make far better tools than a simple thermometer. The trivet uses an embedded computer to read time and temperature. It tells a user whether food needs re-warming (is under 90 degrees F); is hot and ready to take out of the oven and eat, but not overcooked; or is so hot that it will catch on fire (above 454 degrees F). This high-temperature alert provides an added safety feature for the home.
