        Shit take. Struggle half a lifetime with child locks because you can't educate your kids

          If you struggle with child safety locks, then that's an indictment on your mental capacity or lack thereof

            Is it more or less effort to open a thing with a child lock on it? Exactly. Now fuck off and slap your kids like a normal parent does or let them learn by failing instead. Both are better.

        If you teach your kids right, they'll know the stove is hot and stay tf away from the burners, they're not going to crawl over it.

          fucking + and - buttons
          >oh, so you want medium heat? start at 0 or 15 and go up or down until you get there
          >oh, you want to shut off only one heat? too bad the off button will switch off all of them, you'll have to hold the - button during 15 seconds until 0 is reached
          it only happens in cheap stoves, but fuck this shit, I won't get an expensive stove while renting

    Its so our fat guts dont accidentally brush the controls while were cooking. I would know because I got a gas stove with front facing buttons recently and I keep burning my food like this.

    not sure where you get your info (troll) but every stove I ever owned (or used) has the controls on the front.

    In America we have the option for both. Try going to an appliance store and finding out for yourself.

    Having controls in the back, especially for a gas stove, is a safety feature that I shouldn't have to explain.

    I bet it is pretty frustrating, though, being such a manlet that you can't reach the controls!

    I'm American and I'm not sure I've ever seen a stove with the burners at the back like this before, maybe once at a friend's apartment.
    My stove at home has the burner dials in the front, and the oven controls in the back. Always made sense to me tbh, having to reach your arm over what could turn into a sudden gout of flame sounds really unsafe from a design standpoint.

      This, idk if I've ever seen the burner knobs on the back. If I did it was some crazy roach motel shit I saw as a delivery driver.

        I wonder if maybe it's a more common design element on coil or induction stoves? The reaching-your-arm-over thing is probably less of a risk when you're not using a gas stove.
