3. Blenders and Beaters
A 3-year-old girl was helping her mother make cupcakes for her birthday party. But as the little girl leaned over the food bowl to look, a few strands of her hair got caught up in the mixer. The beaters pulled more in, winding her hair so tight it ripped a clump off her head, resulting in a bald spot the size of her mother's palm.
Blenders and beaters can also break little fingers that get caught inside them. So remind your kids ahead of time to keep their fingers away, and be sure to tie your child's hair back every time they help you in the kitchen.
4. Toasters and toaster ovens
The lever on a toaster can attract the interest of children, and the slot on the top just begs to have something put inside, which might be a child's hand or something that is flammable.
5. Coffee makers
These can be as dangerous as a stovetop, but are often overlooked. It contains a burner which keeps a glass pot of scalding liquid hot for extended lengths of time, and thus, can be very dangerous. Keep your coffee maker far to the back side of the counter, and make sure that the cord is secured so that it can't be pulled on. Warn children that the coffee maker can be hot to the touch. Also try to avoid making large pots of coffee that you'll keep on the warmer for extended periods of time.
6. Dishwashing machines
Small children have been known to crawl inside and become trapped in these. We've seen a few cases of children dying inside dishwashing machines.
