NEN-EN-IEC 60335-2-15 deals with the safety of electrical appliances for heating liquids for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V. Appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops and other premises for normal housekeeping purposes, are within the scope of this standard. If the appliance is intended to be used professionally to process food for commercial consumption, that appliance is not considered to be for household or similar use only. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in household and similar environments. However, in general, it does not take into account children playing with appliances and their use by very young children. It does not take into account the use of the following appliances by children: - pressure cookers; - glue pots with a water jacket; - livestock feed boilers; - sterilizers; - soy milk makers; - wash boilers. It does not take into account the use of the following appliances by young children without supervision: - cooking pans; - slow cookers; - steam cookers; - tea makers; - rice cookers; - coffee makers; - kettles; - egg boilers; - milk heaters. It is recognized that very vulnerable people may have needs beyond the level addressed in this standard.
