Safety Criteria: For gas cookers
Safety is represented by the thermocouple. This safety feature now on all gas tables allows gas to be cut off when the flame goes out. The tip of the thermocouple is visible from the table. When the table is on the gas heats the tip of the thermocouple, creating an electric current. If the gas goes out, there is no more electric current thus cutting off the gas supply. For cookers with vitroceramic coating: The safety of these hobs is generally calculated in number of levels, of safety points. Among these securities we find:
- The child safety : control panel lock
- The overheating safety device : even when the hob is off, its temperature is controlled and can trigger the cooling fan if necessary.
- The overflow safety : the table stops working if liquid overflows
- The detection of containers : the fireplace only works if a pan is present on the latter
- The detection of small objects : the home does will turn on in the presence of an upper metal surface 10 cm in diameter
- Residual heat indicator : Indicates that the surface is still hot
- Low current detection : Used to report a power problem
- Automatic shutdown : The system cuts off the automatic power supply if you forget it
- Bad connection detection : Prevents damage to the table
