Worked for us, may or may not work for you
I was surprised by the number of mediocre to negative reviews of these after I sent a friend here to buy them for her grandson. I get what people are saying and why they wrote negative reviews, but they did however, work for us and I will buy more now that my daughter can reach the knobs.First off, regarding melting, presently we have a range – nothing below to generate heat, so no issue there. However we did have a freestanding stove and didn’t have a melting problem probably because of both the angle of our control panel and the fact that we have small children and we would never leave our oven open, even cracked.Yes, my son eventually learned how to open these up once he was tall enough to see what he was doing. Prior to this we never gave him a chance to learn how to open them up – if he was fiddling around with them at the stove he was told “no” and removed.My knobs don’t easily come off, so the whole thing coming off wasn’t an issue for us. Removing the knobs is a great option – if you don’t have a husband like mine who would never ever remember where I put them. ;-)I liked these if anything, for me. On two occasions I came in and dropped loads of groceries on every surface – including the stovetop – and bumped a knob and accidentally turned a burner on. (I won’t have that problem now with my gas range.) But it was enough to make me think about buying knob covers for my clumsiness.
Same problem as below and there is a solution
Save your eight dollars and just take off the knobs for a while. I store them in a locked cabinet and then when I cook I just put them back on then remove them when Im done. Then when your child is old enough just put them back on. I have found this to be the easiest method of protection concerning stoves.PS I also had the same problems as below thats how I came to this idea
I bought these after we moved because our new house had knobs on the front instead of on the counter surface. THey fit my oven knobs very loosely so my son likes to make them spin around and around. Also a few of my knobs pull off easily. My son just grabs hold of the covers and off they come, both knob and cover. Then it’s a neat toy with the knob rattling around inside the cover. They do keep him from turning on the stove so they do what their suppose to. I’m just not sure if it’s worth it. It probably depends on your stove.
Might be great, but check your knobs first!
We couldn’t use these covers because our stove knobs have to be pushed in to light the gas stove. The backs on these cases are flat and have a small opening for the peg to go through before you reinsert the knob. If you have to push your oven knobs in to turn on the stove, this will absolutely not work. They seem to be made of pretty sturdy plastic and they shut nicely. I was looking forward to using them, but we’re just going to have to remove the knobs after every use, and keep a closer eye out for hands that turn up or down the heat when the stove is lit… They would probably work well on an electric stove, since they don’t have to be lit.
I like it
I like this item its great to keep kids away from the oven. But 1 already broke due to opening and closing each time I turn the fire out.
Works as expectedKeeps baby hands out of the kitchen knobs..Fits almost any size knob…(its made of plastic – dont expect it to live forever)
Work like a charm
Easy to put on, easy to open for using your stove top knobs, and impossible for our 14 month old to remove.
These work well for our stove. Easy to open with one hand, when you need to adjust the temperature. They are loose on the knobs so our duaghter can move or turn them to her heart’s content, and it does not affect the heat setting.
Not great, but they stop the kids from touching the knobs
My kids are well behaved, but like any kid they are curious. These stopped them from messing with the knobs because it wasn’t as easy and with gas, that’s important for more reasons than fire or heat.They only get 3 stars because they aren’t very heat resistant, and frankly are a pain in the butt on my island range because the knobs are so close together. Now, if that wasn’t part of the point they’d get two stars. But that’s actually a feature to some extent. Ultimately the kids are now old enough that they know better so they are off.They fit the knobs well, and cause issues even for an adult to use, so that stops the kids pretty well.In the end, they did their job and I’m not sure there is much out there that are better.
For the most part, they work great
These are the second set of stove knob covers we’ve purchased. The first set fell victim to my slow learning curve, which I will blame on the sleep deprivation that comes with parenting small children.These attach very easily – slide of your stove knob, put the open cover over the area, slide the knob back in place and close. They open and close easily for adults – pressure in a certain area releases the latch, and when you pull on the cover it opens, exposing the stove knob.Overall, I love these. They’re very affordable, and they come in a set of 5 (unlike the package of 4 made by another brand, of which I had to purchase two to make sure I could cover all of my knobs).I have two complaints: first, when the cover is open, it hangs down over the oven door. If you’re cooking with the stove top and the oven, and happen to open and close the oven door while the knob cover is open, the hinge snaps and you’re down a cover. This is where my slow learning curve came in – I snapped and broke three in one week, forgetting that I could not close the oven door while a knob cover was slightly ajar.Lastly, my daughter has now figured out that if she pulls on the entire cover, she can eventually work it off of the stove, knob, cover and all. This takes steady work for a little one and after attempting it twice she lost interest.Overall, I still like this set, and I think it does a better job than its competitor.
Easy to use
These are very easy to use and impossible for the kids to open. They are able to pull them off (taking the whole knob with them) but that doesn’t really bother me. They’re safe and easy to reattach in 2 seconds.
Great for the price!
I have 20 month old twins! Great price, east to install and has kept my kids from turning on the stove. Only downfall is that I have to take them completely off before I turn on my stove eye.
We really like these!
I understand this product has had mixed reviews for various reasons, but so far our 1 year old has not figured out how to undo these. I placed them on the knobs before he started getting curious about them (just in time, actually), so now when he reaches for them they just spin and he moves on. So far so good – highly recommend!
I have placed these stove guards on my stove, even though my knobs are located at the top of my stove. I was worried that when my son begins to climb he would be able to get the stove on and hurt himself. The only downfall I have found with them is that they do get hot, but that is because they are located just over my burners. Overall they are a good product and I am very pleased with them, especially for the price.
Things you never think you’ll need until your kids tries to burn your house down with gas. Great buy, cheap and easy to put on and use. After having them on a couple of weeks you forget you even have to work around them.
Can you say big
These are a great investment because my little one loves turning knobs, but they are very big when placed on the stove. My stove isn’t stainless steel….maybe it was made for a larger model stove. But they do the job just fine.
These are great!
When my baby started walking the knobs on the stove were his obsession…we found these and they solved our problem!! at first they are a bit annoying but you get used to them…we’ve had them on for 2 years now… i just have to clean them every couple of weeks…Great idea!
Did not fit my Bosch stove handles
These were too small, and did not fit my Bosch stove gas handles. =( Sad I couldn’t use these, but the concept is great.
I am no longer worried that my infant touches those buttons. They are easy to handle, resistant to heat, and look…well, alien-like on my stove. :)I recommend them.
Very happy with these!
We weren’t sure what to expect with these but were pleasantly surprised. They are a bit bulky and take a big of getting used to, but our daughter won’t be turning on the gas knobs on anytime soon!If you have a gas stove, buy these.
love the idea but…
plastic melts in heat. These are plastic, if you leave the oven door open for any amount of time the metal pin hinge in the cover conducts the heat from the oven and melts the hinge…
And the clear looks very nice in the kitchen and not very noticeable
my 18 month old has yet to figure them out. And the clear looks very nice in the kitchen and not very noticeable.
These are good…
One did break eventually, but I got quite a bit of use out of them. They’re the first stove knob covers that I’ve found to work. I also cut the backs of them a bit and use them over door knobs. They work well that way too.
Poor choice. Would like to find better covers.
I was excited to get these to protect my 15 month old from turning on the stove, but when they arrived, I discovered that you must remove the stove knobs in order to install the covers. I wish I had known! The stove in our apartment doesn’t have removable knobs.AND as soon as my daughter saw the covers, she wanted to play with them. I can only imagine how much more a toddler would WANT to play with the stove knobs with these covers on! In my opinion, it was a poor choice on my part and a waste of money. :(Having a hard time finding covers to fit over knobs without having to remove them. If anyone has an idea, please let me know! Thank you.
Believe it or not we had to buy these knobs because of our DOG! He kept turning on the stove while trying to see if there was any food left out. We are now expecting our first baby and I suspect these will provide double duty protection for the dog AND the baby. The knobs on our stove are pretty tough to pull of, so I don’t foresee that being an issue. Either way, I’d rather have the knob pulled off than have the gas turned on accidentally.
Too big to all fit
These are quite oversized, so if your knobs are close together they don’t work at all since you can’t even put them all one at once.
Highly effective and easy to install
Given some of the reviews, I was skeptical of this product, but there didn’t seem to be much else available so for $8.50 I decided to give it a try. I am happy that I did.The knobs couldn’t be easier to install, and they are easy to open when you’re using the stove (I can do it with just one hand). If your kid is a mechanical genius, he/she might be able to get them open (in that case, just save your $$ and pull the knobs off completely when you’re not using the stove), but our 15-month old hasn’t done anything other than spin them a little. (They are probably more effective if you install them *before* they get interested in the stove.)As far as heat-resistance, we have the knobs on the front of the stove. We use the oven a lot, and the heat hasn’t caused any problems. If your knobs are on top, that might be different.
I love these! It keeps my 2 year old from turning on the stove which he could do at 16 months!
We like these. They keep the toddler from turning the gas range burners on, but not the nicest looking things.
They work and aren’t too ugly
They work and aren’t too ugly — not much more to be said. The install easily, prevent the baby from turning the stove on, and all told don’t look too bad.
