Wow, a strong opinion. I fail to see, however, how this would bump the cost of the appliance, all the features are alreayd there. I understand the importance of parenting and attending to your kids, trust me. If you did as well you would understand accidents sometimes happen.

My point was that a free (or nearly so) change could be made to prevent a child being burned. I didn't ask for governement regulation (you might look up the meaning of nanny state) just the option to buy something I think would be useful.

I also bought outlet covers and a baby gate for the top of our stairs, guess that was a mistake huh?

Unbelievable! You're begging for the nanny state to enelop us at an even faster rate! How about some parenting instead of bumping the cost of kitchen appliances? My grandson is passing through the toddler stage unscathed and it's because he's been taught boundaries rather than relying on technological boundaries. What he's learned will serve him well as he continues to develop and become a functional member of society. Will your son only leave things alone if he can't access them? Really?

Oven Door Lock Mystery

My experience with OEM oven door locks is that the door lock is JUST for the pyrotectic oven cleaners, to keep a superheated oven from being opened, and singeing your eyebrows.  The door lock is usually not offered on non-cleaning or catalytic self-cleaning ovens, as the lock is not intended as a child lock.

I do understand that a door lock operated from the higher, more out-of-reach control panel could additionally be a desired feature for child safety.
