A common, hockey puck shaped kitchen convenience device is being credited for saving a St. Louis foodie family’s lives from a house fire. Chris Beckford and his wife Janie were fast asleep around 4 AM when their Dinner’s Done notification system went off with its relentless high pitched “come and get it” notification beep.
Janie, who is a light sleeper, was confused as to why Chris was cooking dinner so late. Nudging Chris to go get dinner out of the oven, he reluctantly got up only to discover a house fire in their guest bedroom. Chris and Janie are alive but shaken up after their close call.
“This Dinner’s Done sensor really saved our lives, we may get a few more, even for non-kitchen areas of the house.”, say the lucky couple.
