Your home is your sanctuary and should be the place where you relax and truly be yourself. In fact, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, people are staying at home more than they have ever before. This means that more people are paying more attention to their home surroundings and in turn, they are motivated to start improving their homes and quality of life.
An interesting effect of this phenomenon is that there has been a rise in demand for better and more innovative household goods so they can enjoy the time spent in their abode. That said, Taiwan Excellence, the prestigious mark of quality and excellence for living solutions from the country held a “Household Goods Online Product Launch”, that focuses on sharing exclusive insights on Taiwan’s household goods industry to the public.
Mr Mark Wu, Executive Director Strategic Marketing Department of TAITRA said that he believes Taiwan Excellence supports products that are not only innovative but must be firmly rooted in helping people live a better life. During the event, four award-winning companies were featured. These companies have produced and marketed some truly incredible household goods that have made a really positive impact on the standard of living.

We’re sure everyone has experienced this at least once, leaving the house or walking away from doing something and having that niggling doubt that you forgot something important like turning off the hair straightener, leaving the door unlocked, or switching off the stove. But with the e+ AutOff, this patented plug-in device automatically helps you turn off your stove which means you don’t need to worry about your kitchen catching fire.
This knob easily fits onto your gas stove and can be installed in just a few simple steps. You can adjust your preferred switch-off time and it will remind you to turn it off when time’s up. But if you’re too busy or can’t hear the reminder, the e+ AutOff will switch it off for you. There’s also a security lock and preset mode that makes it more convenient for you.
