What kind of moron leaves ANYTHING on the stove?

If you leave your laptop on the stove (ignoring why you'd even put it there in the first place), you deserve to have it lit on fire.

This happens.

Our friends suffered severe damage to their kitchen and living room/den because their dog accidentally turned on their stove while surfing for food.

I have friend who seem to think the stove top is just an odd-looking counter top.

Annoys the hell out of me.

The frustrating part about these darwinning people is when they share an apartment complex with others and put their safety at risk too. I always learned from an early age not to store shiat on a surface that CAN reach temps of 500F+... ever. Not even for a little while unless it is what youre cooking.

What if it was electric and the controls short out so it turns on? You cant be certain.

Indeed, and that's just a partial list.

My guess is that it was an old model stove with dials on the front where a small child could reach them. Remember those? There aren't a lot of them left. Maybe it was one of the new ceramic top stoves which a small dog could walk on or a large dog reach with its front paws.

My stove is fairly dog safe. Nothing short of a Great Dane could push all the crap off of it and reach the controls. If it were ever turned on, I would know it had to be the cat.

My cats managed to turn on the stove once when I was out Christmas shopping.  After that, the control knobs lived in one of the kitchen drawers, only being brought out as needed.  It was long enough ago that all the possible culprits have since gone to the Great Litterbox in the Sky, there to pee on St. Peter's robes, sharpen their claws on God's legs, and (in the case of Spidey) bite the noses and chins of any angels attempting to sing.

My cats managed that recently. 10 years and not a problem with those two. Then couple weeks ago I was gone a day and a half, come home to what was probably an explosive mixture in the apartment. They managed to turn on the big burner full blast. Knobs now also in a drawer.

It happens. When I lived in Chelsea one of my sloaney neighbours had to replace the door to her flat due to damage from a fire caused by a stack of papers she left unattended on a hot stove.

These stories pop up often enough that you'd think stove manufacturers would have addressed the issue.

My own stove has one of those buttons you have to press to get a flame, but it stopped working, so now I just use matches.

They still make stoves like that, my parents have one like this at their house, it was installed in the early 2000s, and according to the company website they still make models with the dials on front.

data.jsvt.net

I have one of those glass-top thingies in my house (which I farking hate, but it came with the house, so I'll use it until it breaks) and it has dials on the top of the front, where a jumping dog could conceivably activate them.

What kind of moron leaves ANYTHING on the stove?


Seriously, even when I lived in a teeny little studio apartment that had essentially no counter space or storage, only one thing was ever allowed on the stove that wasn't currently involved in cooking, and that was empty pots and pans. That goes triple if you have a gas stove with a pilot light (instead of the newer sparker kind), something could fall in and start a fire even if everything is turned off.

And if you have a pet that could possibly hit the dial with a paw trying to check out the food smell up there, it's never safe to assume it's off.

(somebody, lost track):

They still make plenty of stoves like that - my parents have one of the really high-end professional-grade gas stoves, only about 5 years old, and the dials are in front. Maybe it's mostly just gas stoves and exposed-coil electrics, or maybe just ones that have attached ovens underneath, I don't know. There's a couple very good reasons to do it that way, though - one, because it's a lot harder to burn yourself (or get a sleeve lit on fire) reaching for a dial on the front than on top, and two, because in a smaller kitchen, that's several inches you could use for burners or counter space. Cats, of course, are no safer with top dials than front dials.

If you don't have small kids - or dogs that like to put their front paws up trying to sniff at what's up there - front dials are better.

fusillade762: What kind of moron leaves ANYTHING on the stove?


the moronic kind.

I'm very fire conscious.  If the plug for my stove were easily accessible, I'd probably unplug it while not in use like I do with the toaster.

my toaster is ancient and I don't trust it ever since the eject mechanism failed one morning and I walked into the kitchen to see flames from the toast reaching almost up to the cabinets above it.

My toaster is so old that Sunbeam is written in hieroglyphics.
