Safety in the kitchen is essential when you have small children. The stove will be of much interest to toddlers because that is where they see their parents clattering pans and turning all those interesting knobs.

Types

Stove Knob Covers: The clear view covers are designed to go over the top of the stove's knobs. They are universal in design and require no adhesive. The covers have a hinged lid that pops open when the covers are pressed to allow access to the knobs. The covers come in a pack of five.

Stove Knob Stops: The grey coloured stops work by sliding under the burner knob, which prevents the knob from being turned. The lock allows adults to disengage the stop when using the stove. The tops attach to the oven with adhesive. The stops come in a pack of five.

Stove and Knob Guard: The clear guard is supported by the oven door handle. There are different designs for electric and gas stoves. The guard is designed to cover the knobs and also protect children from touching the top of the stove. No adhesive and no permanent mounting is required. Adults have access to the knobs from a space behind the guard.

Considerations

Price is always something to consider. The stove and knob guard is the most expensive, retailing at £17.5 in 2010, but it also is two safety items in one. If you already have a stove guard, then it would be more economical to buy one of the other two items, which retail around £5 to £6 in 2010.

Consider how active and interested your child is in the stove knobs. What works best for your child might be different for the next child. Keep this in mind when reading reviews on the products.

Do you want something that uses adhesive and is more permanent or something you can remove. If the child is a visitor at your house then you may not want the safety knobs on all the time. If more than one person is using the stove, consider what will work best for everyone.
