This is the best solution I have seen for this problem. It sends a beeping
noise every few minutes to remind you the burner is still on. My microwave
has a similar reminder that I have left something in there after it finishe
d cooking that I find very helpful. This would probably be just as effectiv
e. You put them on your burner knobs. If you leave a knob without one if yo
u want to cook something for a long time you can choose to do that on a bur
ner you find you don't use often like the one the tea kettle is on. I leave
the kettle on that one most of the time in case I turn that burner on by a
ccident which would make the kettle whistle after a time. If I'm going to k
eep something on the burner on very low like when cooking beans I set a tim
er. After I left eggs boiling on the stove and came back to eggs exploding
all over the place when the water boiled out i don't trust myself. I mean,
who wants to stand over the burner doing nothing for 15 minutes? Okay, blam
e the ADD but luckily there now is a solution for people like me. This is v
ery late but I think the things only came out recently.

I find that beeping on a microwave very annoying. Can't say I've ever
had a problem forgetting something in the microwave after it's cooked.
But the beeping every few minutes, while I'm trying to do something else,
talking to someone, now that's annoying.
And the burneralert thing is even dumber. Who wants the stove beeping
every 3 mins while it's on? Turn on 3 burners and it must really be
something. They aren't synchronized so you'd have beeping almost all the
The website sucks too. Have to sit through 1 min of BS video before
it even shows what it is and what it does.

I just put a 30 minute spring wound timer on my old cooktop when my
daughter was learning to cook. It only controlled the front two
burners but those were the ones she used.
It solved the problem.
Now my father in law wants one but it is not as easy with a glass top.
My old one was metal with spiral burners. I just drilled a hole and
put it in front of the line of controls.
