The SAMAG Uses a Magnetic Field to Reduce the Risk of Cooking Injuries

I can't think of another appliance quite like the SAMAG. This stovetop accessory is a creative solution to reducing the risk of possible injury in the kitchen -- especially when there are children running around. You'll notice that the invention appears to be a simple bar sort of shape that's certainly compact and graspable, yet it isn't immediately obvious how it works.

Inuta Graudina's innovative gadget creates a magnetic field that's strong enough to cause two large metal saucepans to become stuck to the cooktop. This prevents flying toys and flailing kids from knocking hot pots around, exposing scorching burners and spilling supper as it simmers. The Electrolux SAMAG won't, of course, prevent wounds that might result from touching the vessels themselves, but this handy gizmo is a great step in the direction of drama-free food preparation.
