The leader in kitchen fire prevention

It is only the beginning

According to the National Fire Protection Association unattended cooking

fires are the number one cause of home fires in the USA.

CookStop™ was developed to help prevent the possibility of dangerous, unattended cooking fires and to help seniors to live safer, independently, and longer in their own homes. CookStop™ is also appropriate for student housing, busy families, families with latchkey kids, and people with disabilities.

Our Company

CookStop™ was founded by three Silicon Valley veterans with over 75 years of combined experience providing high-technology solutions and training in the computer network and Internet security industry. Their goal is to focus this experience on improving people’s lives by making their homes safer to live in, longer.

Dan Haugen, President and COO: Dan has over 25 years of experience in technology. He worked as a Senior Field Engineer and Manufacturing Test Engineer for Digital Equipment Corporation. He served as Senior Project Manager for Support Operations at Lucent Technologies and as a Manager of Special Projects at RedBack Networks. Before joining Agate, Dan implemented training programs for SkyPilot Networks and was instrumental in the design and construction of Mobile RF platforms for Training and Testing.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide reliable, technology-based products designed to make homes safer to live in and to provide peace of mind for all families, with special emphasis on helping people stay independent in their own homes.  


CookStop is a patented, MET labs approved to UL 916 and CSA C22.2 No. 205 safety device that turns off an electric stove when left unattended.  CookStop uses computer-controlled, motion-sense technology to determine someone’s presence in the kitchen.  When they leave the cooking area, CookStop™ begins a countdown. As long as they are moving in and out of, or around the kitchen, CookStop™ continuously resets the countdown timer to full. However, if they do not return to the cooking area within the countdown period, CookStop™ will turn off power to the stove.

CookStop works immediately upon installation to make electric stoves safer. However, CookStop is also highly programmable and can address the Activities of Daily Living (ADL) requirements of a diverse population. We encourage caregivers to become involved with the assessment and recommendation for their client’s CookStop settings.
