How does StoveTop FireStop Microhood work?
1. StoveTop FireStop Microhood attaches to the wall below microwave ovens or kitchen cabinetry. When flames from a grease fire on the front burner touch the bottom of the device, the front ramp opens. While the front ramp is designed to deliver fire-suppressing powder directly to the front
burner, a rear canister will deliver powder to the back burner if needed.
2. Upon flame activation, the device emits a short “pop” noise, alerting the resident that the device has activated. The petals of the StoveTop FireStop canister open, releasing the fire-suppressing powder.
3. The powder pours out via the ramp and suppresses the fire in the pan. After the fire is out, the resident should turn off the burner to prevent re-ignition, if it is safe to do so.

"A resident left a skillet burning and a fire started, but the flame was extinguished by StoveTop FireStop before too much damage could be done. This could have been a disaster in the apartment community. We are very glad that we had installed StoveTop FireStop."
— Linda O'Neal Property Manager, Edgewood Drive Apartments - HSI Management Inc.
"Royal American Management has been using StoveTop FireStop Automatic Fire Extinguisher in our apartments since 1994. Prior to installation of the product, we averaged a kitchen fire per month. We found that more fires occurred during the school months with school-age children fixing snacks on the stove and then leaving the burners on. Average cost of each fire was around $3,000.00. Since installing StoveTop FireStop, we seldom have kitchen fires and have calculated our cost savings from cooking fire-related losses at approximately $100,000.00. I have personally installed StoveTop FireStop in my home and would recommend this product to companies and individuals for both safety and loss control due to fires."
