The Kitchen Safe is a plastic container with a lock rigged to a timer to help people avoid temptation. The lock can be set for any amount of time ranging from one minute to ten days, and it can't be opened until the timer reaches zero.

The time-lock container can be used for food, gadgets, toys, money, and almost any other items you want, but shouldn't have. You simply place the item inside the Kitchen Safe, close the lid, set the timer and press the button.

The Kitchen Safe measures 15.2 x 15.2 x 16.5 cm and works inside a refrigerator, but not a freezer. The timer requires two AA batteries, which should last around 6 months. If they run out or are removed, the lock will stay sealed and the countdown will resume once they're replaced.
