The invention applies a thermoelectric generator (TEG) to devices/home appliances for enhancing improve power consumption. The TEG converts thermal energy into electric current based on the difference of temperature gradient of the TEG materials with different Seebeck coefficient, making a reduction to total electricity for the operation of an appliance/device. Further, the electric current generator TEG provides power to a sensor attaching to pot utensils, e.g., a temperature sensor for monitoring food temperature, without relying on the continuous input of external electricity.
