Todah Rabbah Thank you so much for taking the time to read about my Shabbos Safe Hotplate!

Risks and challenges

B"H
My name is BenTzion Davis and I am an Electronic Engineering Technician in New York, New York.

This is just a quick summery of the story behind the Shabbos Safe Hotplate, to hear part of my story you will need to read the full BIO.

I believe G-d has had a divine hand in this project from the beginning. I was asked by many friends some time ago if there was a food warming hotplate that I would recommend. I have had experience in the past repairing broken hotplates as a favor for friends and neighbors. It had always bothered me that the best selling hotplate found in most Jewish homes was built so cheaply. Even the New version promising to be triple tested cost only dollars to manufacture. Most families trust these brands because they are a Heimish brand and they seem to last. The problem is that the internals are either made for a few cents or they damage easily, and the wiring degrades significantly because of the excessive heat and cheaper materials.

One of the conversations about recommending a food warming plate was a discussion among friends on social media. I explained exactly what to look for in a hotplate and how I would design one if I could. It was mentioned why don't you? I made a drawing and schematic of the basic improvements that I would add to the design. I would use a common tubular style heating element found in any electric oven for long service life, safety, dependability and affordability. I would give it longer legs to raise the heat from the counter top. I would install thermal circuitry to restrict the flow of electricity to a minimum and cut the electricity if there was any abnormal change in heat. Finally use only industrial grade wiring and a three prong circuit breaker to avoid any accidents.

I emailed over 25 different factories over seas trying to find one that could manufacture my design to my quality standards, with all my safety features, at an affordable price. It was impossible, as the cost of testing, certification, fabrication and various costs kept it in a price range out of reach of your common consumer. Until the 25th factory had a stainless steel unit already in manufacture, and with the addition of my safety features would meet my specifications exactly. My dream was a reality, they were able to send me a prototype within a month.

Now to cover the ETL safety certification, and the minimum factory order I need to pre-sell 1000 units before manufacture. I wrote a blog advertising my design and my plans to launch a Kickstarter and the response from the Jewish community was unbelievable. Over 2458 page views in the first few weeks. This convinced me that it was time to act now, that I needed to get my design out there.

BE"H and with your help I would love to know that there are a thousand Jewish homes with my hotplate observing a safer Shabbos and sleeping better at night.
