Our Innovation:
Gorilla®-stove SwitchBox

Your Gorilla®-stove SwitchBox completes your Gorilla®-stove.
It connects automatically with the temperature-sensor Gorilla®-stove and turns off the electrical stove in case of alarm or hazard.

It protects also against turning on the oven by accident and recognises when people forget to turn off the stove (e.g. dementia or memory disorder) .
Also Gorilla®-stove SwitchBox has 5 years warranty.

A brief overview of the problem and the solution.
(German language, English coming soon).


Works with your existing electrical stove at home

Gorilla®-stove SwitchBox needs no intervention inside the electrical stove, it is switched like a breaker in-between the supply-cable of the electrical stove. Gorilla®-stove und Gorilla®-stove SwitchBox connect automatically without the need to install cable or similar.

Every day

there are burning about

50 kitchens

in Great Britian !

Why does this happen ?
  • You are cooking food and go “quickly”
    - to the phone
    - to the front door
    - to the freezer
    - to the store room
  • Humans with dementia or memory disorder forget to switch off the stove.
  • Infants or pets switch on the stove accidentially.

Why do smoke detectors not help ?

  • Experts recommend not to use smoke detectors in kitchens.
    (frequent fals alarms)
  • When smoke detectors alert, the kitchen is already on fire.
  • Gorilla®-stove uses another system than smoke detectors.
  • The intelligent, learning temperature sensor alerts before a dangerous situation occurs.

"This does not happen to me, why should I need a Gorilla®-stove ?"


Consider the example "saftey belt":
  1. You do not expect a road accident.
  2. Still you fasten your safety belt.
  3. In a car crash the belt can safe lives.
  4. It is similar with a stove guard.

Statistics show:
   The stove guard is more important than the smoke detector

For the experts: How it works

The two products Gorilla®-stove and Gorilla®-stove SwitchBox form together the Gorilla®-stove Kit.

Gorilla®-stove is sitting as a sensor under the cooker-hood and detects overheating, while Gorilla®-stove SwitchBox is installed by a certified installer behind the electrical cooker, observing the flow of electricity into the cooker and switching off the electricity if required.

A huge amount of tests with many different cooker-types have been performed to develop and optimise the technology of the Gorilla®-stove Kit, furthermore official tests have been performed by independent test institutes SINTEF and VTT, Finland.

Of course, Gorilla®-stove is not a guarantee against fire at the stove, but it reduces the risk of a stove fire significantly.
