    It would seem that way to me too had I not of burned my three year old grandson once when I had a spaghetti disaster. When I found this it was an aha moment for me, and a "wish I had thought of that"!!

    I also bought one for my mother n law that had a stroke and lost some use in her hands, and it works great for her too :) but to each his own. Have a great evening.

    Perhaps for a home cook, otherwise, an accident waiting to happen.

    Looks like I would break that thing in a week or two.

    Whether  transferring to another bowl or to a dinner plate, I handle/control the pasta with spring tongs,

    things like that broccoli with a large serving spoon.  I rarely spill anything, it's all in the wrist.

    the colander was not the problem.
     
    a three year old should not be crawling around on the stove.
    anyone in charge of a three year old should not have been pouring hot pasta over the kid's head.
    or near the kid's head / hands / arms / legs / feet / diaper.

    think first.  like the Dude said, you can't fix stupid - not even with drop gates.

    I did not come here for parenting advice, I came here to share ideas and be a part of something I really enjoyed. You have no idea what was happening in my house when this happen. We were not even near the stove when it happened. I had a house full of people and was preparing a meal and I did not ever say that it was bad. It only splashed a little juice but that was bad enough that I felt horrible.

    I will not post anything else here, and I am sorry that some of you thought this was parenting classes and not about cooking, and I just shared a gadget that I liked. I may not like all the one's you post, but you can bet I would never call you stupid or anyone else on this forum.........Not my style!!

    And one other thing, if you posted a product, and I had never used it I would not treat you stupid for enjoying it!! I am far from stupid, and take a real offense to being spoken to like I am.

    Have a nice day :) and I will be cancelling my account. And FYI 3 year olds do not crawl.......They walk!!!

    as you've not cancelled your account in the last 2 hours,,,,

    first, my regrets you took that so personally.

    speaking as a person who has never made a stupid mistake (NOT) I see your point.

    speaking as a parent who raised three kids - and all were born at an early age, so I got to enjoy the Terrible Twos and Threes....

    the kitchen is a dang dangerous place.

    Handling anything hot - whether on / off / to / from the cooktop or oven - is a situation where the adult needs to ensure the kid is not endangered.

    they're curious, they get into everything and frequently get to things they should not.

    it's up to the adults to ensure they're not in harm's way.

    You shouldn't leave over what one person said. Not all of us feel that way. Accidents happen. My own comment about the colander was directed towards the infomercial gimmick of the product itself, and certainly not aimed at you at all. I hope you change your mind about leaving because this is a great community. Don't let something like this upset you to where you don't get to enjoy all the forum has to offer.
