    This is a great product, extremely easy to install. I’ve had a house fire in the past, so am extra cautious around the kitchen. You simply plug the microwave into the plug so it can auto turn off if needed (so it’s safe when you’re not home), and the alarm is magnetized to be placed on the microwave. I tried the test button and it’s very loud. I think this could be used for more than just microwaves as well.

    The way this item works is to detect an overload or surge of power coming from the microwave, which could cause smoking. It connects to the wall, the microwave plugs into it and the smoke detector adheres to the microwave via a magnet. Should smoke be detected, the device will automatically shut off power to the microwave. This is all in theory as thankfully we've not yet had a situation where the microwave malfunctioned to that degree! I would, for peace of mind, recommend this for any student!

    I think the pioneer technology safety sensor is an excellent backup safety system for what could happen if a microwave fire occurs. It is easy to hook up and simple to use. I can’t yet see if it will actually work as I have not yet had a microwave fire or smoke from my microwave, but I think it is an excellent safety back up. I hope it never has to be used for its purpose, but it gives me comfort of mind knowing it’s there.

    This little device offers a piece of mind for me. Safety is very important as most fires I feel start in the kitchen. The unit is very small and you do not even notice the device once installed. I have the sensor on the side of the microwave. The magnetic feature holds up the sensor. The sensor has not gone off but I’m hoping it will not ever go off.

    Have you ever accidentally set the microwave instead of to 2 minutes to 2 hours? Well, I have, and the result wasn't pretty. It didn't burn down the house, but it easily could have gotten there. With this little device that should never happen again. It is very sensitive and cuts the power to the microwave at the first sign of smoke. It may be a little too sensitive, as it sometimes gives a false alarm, especially when I make popcorn. But I'm perfectly willing to live with a false alarm every once in a while and be safe all the time.

    The safe T sensor system is quick add-on safety product for portable or other cord connected microwave ovens that are not built-in and have accessible exhaust vents. It is safety tested and certified by ETL. The system consists of a plug-in module that has an outlet to plug-in the microwave oven and a cord connected sensor module that has a magnetic back to allow attachment on the microwave oven below or adjacent to the exhaust vent. It functions to monitor the output exhaust and if it senses smoke that might occur if food starts to burn it immediately disconnects power to the microwave oven. Note that it does not extinguish a fire, but in the event of a fire disconnecting power is important. Microwave ovens are are intended to be used as attended appliances and this product does not change that but offers an added safety feature. Thorough installation and use instructions with pictures are provided with the system including cleaning instructions for the sensor module. While it has some use limitations and in general not intended for built-in microwave ovens, it is still a nice safety add-on for microwave ovens that meet the specified use criteria.

    A simple, clever device that could save you money -- or your life. I ordered this unit after my elderly mother put a casserole in the microwave and set the time like she would have on a traditional oven. Fortunately, we noticed it before anything caught fire, but this device offers insurance. Setup is dead easy -- just figure out where your exhaust vents are, and attach the sensor there using the magnet on the back of the unit. Then plug the adapter into the outlet and the microwave power cord into the adapter. At the first sign of smoke. the unit will cut power to the microwave. Frankly, it's a feature that should be standard on microwaves, but until it is, this does the trick. Highly recommended.

    PIONEERING TECHNOLOGY Safe-T-Sensor: Cooking Fire Solution for Microwave Ovens, Grey Is a must have for microwave oven or the conventional oven for the safety. With fire hazard all over the house, there are never too much of safety precaution at home or work place. I also have experience the food get burnt in the microwave. Fortunately, I found it early enough and our smoke alarm was turned on. With this device, it will cut the power automatically at the first sign of smoke. This will prevent further development of fire. You just need to plug it in between the wall outlet and the microwave oven. It will do the rest to protect you and your family.

    I hope I never can tell you how this works. Several years ago we had an incident with overcooking a back of popcorn which smoked up our kitchen. I'm hoping that just having this in place will keep us from ever repeating that incident. The worst part of the installation is you need to allow time to clean the counter under the microwave when you move it out to get to the plug and you have to rest the clock on your microwave. It was super easy to install. Realize that if you have your microwave plugged into an outlet right behind the microwave, this will make it stand out a little farther from the wall. The sensor has a nice magnet that holds it in place. The sensor also has a red LED on it so plan on a new glow on the side of the microwave. I have included the instructions in my pictures if you are interested.

    Fast & Easy Peace of Mind. So simple, unplug your microwave, plug this device in, plug your microwave in to this plug and place the sensor by the vent on the microwave and you are all set. If something starts to burn in the microwave the sensor will detect the smoke and cut the power to the unit. Although i haven't burnt anything to test it I have installed it and look at it like an insurance policy. Hopefully I will never have to use it.
