Of course, all for the good of Europe:
Of course. Except that if you ever tried to create a proper crust on a roast, this will be a thing of the past with these new ovens.
And with coffee percolators that switch off after five minutes in order to save power, one can be sure that some thrifty electronician will create an IC that disables this feature.
However, circumventing the 'energy-efficient' mechanisms of ovens will be a little more difficult, at least for the consumer.
