I love these covers. The way my gas stove is positioned in my kitchen, it is very easy to accidentally turn the left one on when I am stretching to put away things in the cupboard above my stove. I did that a few times and found these covers. They protect you from accidentally turning on the stove and they look nice. They are also very easy to pop on and off to clean (and I just put them in the top rack of the dishwasher) and they are easy to open up when you want to use the stove. In my situation, I am not using them for child or pet protection, but I can see that they'd be very useful for those scenarios as well. Highly recommended.
