A 10 month old boy sustained burn injuries from contact with the inside of a hot consumer gas range lower broiler door. A unique human factors test program was conducted with live children to determine if they could open alternative lower broiler door designs. Safety and functional analyses of alternative broiler door designs are also performed. Finally, techniques for supervising young children around ovens are explored in this paper.
