We have a galley kitchen, so i just put a gate up to keep her away for a while; it also kept her from falling down the basement steps, because we had to leave the door open so the cat could access his litter box.
But when the gate was no longer necessary, and she STILL was tempted by the stove, we just took the knobs off. They come off to clean, anyway. Then we would only put them on when we were actually cooking.
For a few months the big word around here was "HOT". It ended up being one of her first words!
She never had any interest in opening the oven door; we were spared that. But man, they do love to twiddle knobs. My nephew broke his family's dishwasher that way...
