With the development of technology, the electric cookers have become more and more powerful, more and more complex, then bring new usability problems, such as difficult operation, unclear of function meaning. Aiming at these ergonomics problems, this study first proposes to use a combined means of usability testing and EEG to evaluate display interface of electric cookers. The index system of intelligent electric cooker display interface ergonomic evaluation is built on questionnaire survey and research on the related documents. The three chosen intelligent electric cookers are evaluated on this basis. Consequently, ergonomics problems of electric cooker display interface are discovered and related proposals for improvement are proposed. These ergonomic problems, which are found to avoid problems in the design and redesign process of intelligent electric cooker, provides direction of designing the electric cooker display interface.
