Appliance accessories for OCD

I used to take the rotor arm out of the distributor of my first car whenever I had to park it on the street. Although it made a rubbish pendant, I always knew the car would be there when I returned.

Appliances could be designed so that integral parts involved in the distribution of power to heating elements or hot plates are removable and wearable.
Simply touching the Smeg bracelet or belt buckle will give the OCD sufferer the reassurance they need.

Good concept, but one could forget to remove the key component unless it was needed in the next step.

Belt buckle is good, your pants would slip if you didn't have the component.

I could see this developing into an intricate smart keychain, and you could not start your car unless you had disarmed all the devices of choice in your home before you left.

True [normzone], but at least they'd only need to return to check the stove/remove the component once. The keychain is good.

Stares at beloved Smeg and ponders which bit to feed unto key ring.[+]
