The insulator is the correct answer to this question. Insulators are paths that don't allow electricity to travel through it easily. In many cases, one wants the ability to have heat trapped to help slow the flow. Many also want the flow to be stopped altogether to prevent electric shocks. Insulators are around us every day.

The material examples include wood, plastic, and ceramics. We also have them in our homes, especially in our kitchens. Take, for example, kitchen utensils, such as a spatula or a spoon. These are insulators because it prevents heat from the pan to spread to the hands.
