My son Donnie is now 16 months old and with that comes more curiosity and getting his hands into absolutely everything. I try to encourage his curiosity in the world around him and let him explore his surroundings as much as possible however it can do a number on the nerves. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen and Donnie has decided that he likes to “help out” and this is TERRIFYING!!! He's now able to reach up to the stove and turn the knobs!!
To remedy this I ordered the Dreambaby – 4 Pack Stove Knob Covers from Amazon. As I ordered a couple of things I was able to take advantage of their free shipping option which was great. The shipping was super fast too! To my surprise the package arrived extremely quick – in fact it arrived the very next day!! I'm in Toronto so the product must not have had far to travel.
The instructions for the covers are very simple – it's just a matter of taking the knobs off the stove and placing the open covers where they need to go then replacing the knobs and closing the top. They fit the knobs of my stove perfectly and really do live up to expectations – Donnie's little curious hands are not able to open the covers and also prevents him from turning the knobs. I should also point out that for an adult it's quite easy to open the covers and I don't find that I have to struggle with them when I'm busy in the kitchen.
I have read a few other reviews for the covers and noticed that a few people have complained that they did not fit properly. The knobs on my stove are about 2 inches in diameter which leave a little bit of wiggle room for the covers so they fit just fine for me. You might want to keep this in mind when considering purchasing these.
Overall I think these are definitely worth purchasing. So far so good – they do the job as advertised.
