You may know you need to keep the kids away from the oven, but don't forget these extra safety measures. Install knob covers or remove the knobs completely to keep your child from turning on any burners, especially if you have a gas stove. Install a latch on the oven door to keep it from being opened and a splash guard to protect your child from any hot splatters. Finally, always turn pot handles inward when cooking to keep your child from reaching up and pulling any pots or pans down on top of him.
