Mississauga, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - October 29, 2015) - Pioneering Technology Corp. (TSXV: PTE) (OTC: PTEFF) of Mississauga, Ontario, ("Pioneering"), North America's leader in cooking fire prevention technologies and products is very pleased to announce today that the Company's SmartBurner product is now available to consumers in the United States through Home Depot via www.homedepot.com.
Pioneering's patented SmartBurner is product engineered to help prevent cooking fires, the #1 cause of household fire and fire injuries in North America.
SmartBurner not only helps prevent cooking fires, but also helps reduce energy consumption, improves cooking performance and dramatically enhances the aesthetics of electric coil stoves and kitchens. Since its introduction in early 2015 the SmartBurner has enjoyed significant success in the United States selling into multi-residential business to business channels delivering a positive return on investment for customers.
Now, for the first time in the U.S., the product is available to residential consumers through Home Depot. SmartBurner provides a safer environment and peace of mind for those with aging parents who continue to live independently, for young double income families, for university students and/or for people living on their own for the first time. The SmartBurner also offers an aesthetic upgrade to any electric coil stove. In Canada, consumers are able to purchase the SmartBurner product at Home Hardware stores across the country.
"Residential consumer interest in the product is extremely strong and we are asked repeatedly by consumers in the United States where the product can be purchased. Today, we are thrilled to be able to announce that the SmartBurner is now available to the general public in the United States with one of the country's most innovative and trusted retailers, Home Depot," said Pioneering CEO Kevin Callahan.
The new easy to install SmartBurner offers similar temperature limiting control (TLC) technology as the Company's flagship commercial product (Safe-T-element) engineered to help prevent stove top cooking fires, reduce energy consumption and deliver a return on investment. Pioneering's TLC technology has been installed in over 130,000 multi-residential housing units across North America to date, without a single cooking fire being reported. Up until recently the technology has had to be professionally hardwired into the stove. The new "easy to install" SmartBurner (consumer version) has the technology built right into each of the burner elements, so now anyone can install the technology in seconds.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, stovetop cooking is the number one cause of household fire in North America (44% of all household fires - up from 20% in 1980), a multi-billion dollar problem annually in North America.
