Cooker heating rings that are designed in the shape of letters,
numerals or other symbols, so that you can easily tell which
one to turn on. According to their size and volume, letters or
numbers would naturally provide greater or lesser heat
ranges. Especially useful for multi-ringed stoves,
and will work
equally well for gas, electric or infra-red. In a large restaurant
kitchen, sequences of numbers or letters could be shouted
out by the chef to his/her minions by way of instructions.
||Sell the size=, not the s+
||so is it an A shaped knob for an A shaped ring? +1
||design your own? @ for an @ ring - great.
||How would the minion know which hotplate was which when there's a pot on top of it?
||are you serious BH ? well if the hot
plates were shaped as: & W @ R and one
was covered, then you would determine
which one it was by looking at the
uncovered ones. The knob for the one
that was on would also indicate this
---- dooooh this is very basic stuff.
||Just A, B, C, D with knobs the same shape would be great. I still get it wrong wile looking at the little diagram.
||this is an old Idea, so my interest in it is
somewhat dim, but anyway [nomocrow]
the symbols or letters need to have a
degree of shape and surface volume to
create a larger surface area for heating up
ie '&' is better than 'V', but 'B's, 'M's and
'A's are ok along with a few other letters
