WILKES-BARRE, Pa., July 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Kitchen fires are a common occurrence fueled by the combination of everyday distractions, hot kitchen stove burners, and the grease laden environment of the kitchen. According to the National Fire Protection Association, a home fire occurs every 88 seconds and cooking is the leading cause of home fires. The Insurance Journal states that fire-related claims are also the most expensive.
Auto-Out Venthood is a stovetop fire suppressor that works automatically upon flame-activation. Sold in a pair, the devices attach with a magnet to the underside of the range hood, positioned above the burners. Upon flame-activation from a grease fire Auto-Out automatically opens, releasing a safe and environmentally-friendly powder that smothers the flames. By helping to prevent grease fires from spreading past the cooktop, Auto-Out can keep disastrous fires at bay.
