Features

  • Tall Cone

    The cone is the most important feature of the Smart Cone as it helps to reduce the chance of splashback. It also makes boiling over a thing of the past as there is still space for the steam to escape while increasing the overall depth of the pan. This is an impressive safety feature that makes sure the user can still keep an eye on their food without worrying about being splashed with boiling water or oil.

  • Universal Fit

    Smart Cone has a clever design overall which allows it to fit over almost all pots and pans. The base of the product is wide enough that it can fit over the majority of pans from small to large with relative ease.

  • Stay Cool Handle

    The handle is made of silicone which ensures that the user will always have a cool handle to hold the item from. This allows the user to keep the Smart Cone steady and reduces the risk of slippages. The handle itself is designed to cup the handle of the pan which means the product itself is less likely to move about on the top of the pan.

  • Collapsible Top

    Storing the product is relatively easy as it folds down flat resulting in a compact and easy to store product. This means that the cone itself can unfold and has been designed to be as tall as possible without infringing the users' ability to stir the food.

  • Dishwasher Safe

    Once the product is used it can be cleaned simply by putting it in the dishwasher. As it can withstand heats of up to 500C this means it can be kept very clean without worrying about altering the integrity of the silicone.

  • Bpa Free

    There is no BPA in the Smart Cone meaning it can be used for food production without any transfer.

Pros

  • Chimney Cooking Effect

    Using this item allows for a more even and thorough cook of the food inside. In certain cases it also allows the user to cook a larger volume of food for steaming without worrying about overflow or uneven cooking. This chimney effect makes it easier to time food and makes the overall process much sleeker.

  • Open Top

    The majority of splatter guards on the market cover the entirety of the pan without leaving space to reach the food inside. While this reduces the chance of splatter when something is left in the pan, it isn't a good safety feature as it still has to be removed to stir the food inside. The Smart Cone's open top allows the user to easily reach inside and move the ingredients around without concern of being splattered with hot or colorful food.

  • Universal Fit

    This is a product that only needs to be bought once and it can then be used on all of the pots and pans in the house. It is easy to transfer from pot to pot and doesn't require a lot of effort to attach to each pot as it is used. This is a great money saver as it isn't necessary to buy a variety of items to be able to use it on a variety of pots and pans.

  • Dishwasher Safe

    Ease of use is essential in the product and that goes through to the materials used. High-quality silicone and stainless steel mean this product can be washed in the dishwasher making it even more appealing in modern day society.

  • Handle

    The handle itself is heatproof meaning the user is completely safe from burns. It is also designed to sit neatly over the top of the majority of handles on pots and pans which reduces the risk of the product slipping around.

  • Easy Storage

    Unlike pots and pans which can be very bulky, the Smart Cone can be folding down to lie flat. The silicone top of the product folds into itself.

Cons

  • Small Opening

    The opening at the top of the Smart Cone is quite small which makes it difficult to reach the crevices of the pans being used. This is particularly true of larger, shallow pans where it can be almost impossible to get a good angle without removing the item first.

  • Large Pans

    While the Smart Cone can be used on a wide variety of pots and pans it can't cover larger pans which reduce its use.

  • Height

    The added height makes it better for reducing the amount of splatter however it also makes it a lot easier to knock the pan, especially on front burners.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Use on Back Burner

    As the Smart Cone is tall it makes it a lot easier to catch it when stirring other pots and pans. To reduce the chance of this simply use it on one of the back burners, especially if it isn't being used continually.

Save Time

The Smart Cone is an excellent feature for reduces splatter and pots boiling over. In turn, this greatly reduces the amount of cleaning after a meal has been prepared. This can help keep the hob clean and is easy to clean itself, saving hours of manual labor in the kitchen.

How it's Different from Competitors

The majority of splatter guards are flat in design and don't allow the user to reach into the pot or pan while continuing to be safe from splatter. This can be used very easily as the open top design allows the user to stir and maintain ingredients without suffering from pain or from the splashback going over the hob anyway.

It also improves the cooking of the food in question as it creates a chimney effect. This is particularly important as the majority of splatter guards concentrate simply on the ability to keep an eye on food while reducing the risk of splashback.

Does It Really Work?

Yes! This helps make the overall cooking experience a lot easier and safer while improving the end results. The chance of splatter while using this item is significantly lower than without using a splatter guard. It also makes cooking much easier and more consistent than when using a regular splatter guard.
