This machine allows the user to heat a carving knife in a safe and convenient manner, almost instantaneously. This takes out the risk of the more traditional procedure of heating the carving knife using a bunsen burner, alcohol lamp or gas burner. The product allows the use to bring a high heat to the knife almost instantaneously, whilst maintaining safety and convenience. The device is energy efficient, as all energy is turned into heat, which is used to hear the knife. It has a compact design and with a replaceable cap it can be easily cleaned. In cases where the carving knife is left in for too long an error sign will appear and the circuit will be broken, turning the product off.
