Why do Americans have the controls at the back of the stove, rather than at the front?

>> No.17977702

it's so children don't turn on the stove or cause a gas leak

Besides, real stoves have child lock features

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

>> No.17977713

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.

Now I'm intrigued, what inconvenient features do European stoves have

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.

>> No.17977749

we have every type of stove that you could ever want
and my range has the stove controls on the front and oven controls on the back

It's a special design optimised for cooking mac and cheese slop.

Depends on the stove, dumbass. Maybe try visiting places that aren't your mom's kitchen.

>what inconvenient features do European stoves have
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

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

>> No.17977813

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.

just buy one of those stove-oven with push buttons that go inside the panel and then you push back for it to come out when you need it , easy

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

>> No.17978174

My stove has front turny windly bits like the Queen's stoves and I live in the US.

>> No.17979156

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 desu, 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.

>> No.17979497

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.
