Gas range safety

spiffy_dude | Jun 24, 2007 02:44 PM

I'm buying new appliances and I'm considering a gas range because I love the idea of having more responsive heat. Now, I've never had or even used a gas range before. I'm a bit uneasy about using gas appliances, but I admit that I don't know much about them. My concern is with safety. See, the thing is my wife is quite forgetful and clumsy. On top of that, we have a large dog that's curious about everything. Am I right to be concerned? Or are there sufficient safety features that come standard with gas ranges? Any safety/maintenance tips that I should know about?
