What have you done to baby-proof your broilers in the kitchen? Yes, I know it's really "baby-deterrent" as there is no such thing as "baby-proof."
I have the entire upstairs baby-proofed to the point where the 1-year-old can run around and he will be fine for a long time. I am darn proud of this and it's been working for the few months he has been running. (Keep in mind I never leave him alone, etc, but I know that I can sneeze and close my eyes for 1/32nd of a second and he won't get into trouble--heck, I even have the bookcases bolted to the walls.)
The issue, though, is that I can't keep him out of the broiler below the oven no matter what I do. I tried tying it closed and he just stretches the tie. I tried an "oven lock" but it doesn't make enough contact with the broiler to stick so it falls off. I can't figure out what to do. I have done so much Google research that my head is spinning and this topic isn't discussed anywhere--just the "oven" part of it, which is not enough as I need the "broiler" below the oven secured, too.
Any thoughts, ideas, etc? I can't possibly be the only dad who wants to keep a toddler out of the broiler.
