Default Warning! Warning! Warning!

If you brew on a range, you need to be aware of this deadly hazard:




This came with my new range and included a bracket to bolt into the floor.

You can't make this stuff up!

Who doesn't stand on the oven door while boiling their wort?

sad thing is, some people try to use the oven door as a step and get hurt very badly.... probably the same people that sue because their hot coffee was hot...

Jeez, that's almost as stoopid and "lawyerly" as these;

Yeah. They've been including brackets since the early 90's. Especially for apartment units.

The bracket was originally intended for a child safety device but, more and more companies have to protect seemingly normal people from themselves.

IIRC, it was originally required by code in commercialized residential because a kid used the door as a step, the range toppled over, and somehow managed to trap the kid inside the oven box. Of course, the kid was too damned younge to be home alone, but was. And the range manufacturer got sued for the act.

Most home inspectors are checking for them to be installed, and some local jurisdictions in NC are requiring them to be properly installed prior to issuing a certificate of occupancy on a new home. Its not in the residential code here yet but they can require it because the manufacturer shows it as a proper installation.

Too many people use that example as the poster child for frivolous lawsuits, when in reality, there was much more to the story than simply some ditzy woman spilling coffee on herself and instantly calling her lawyer to cash in...

Read here. Now you know.

Anyway...
