Upcoming induction machine (Heylo)

I love High-Tech but my eyes just glared over watching this. Too much tech. What am I going to do with it when some proprietary component goes bad and it's no longer supported? I'm always thinking about the other end of how am I going to go out of the deal down the road. Who am I going

Timer question

I'll suggest a timer that has electrical certification for North America: UL, CSA, etc. (Not CE, which is meaningless) Unfortunately, there is plenty of stuff online that isn't properly certified. Wall outlet GFCI is fine, just test that the GFCI works regularly. I personally prefer a smart outlet over a basic timer, but if you don't need

Timer question
