Big mistake

When you turn the knob the igniter engages and immediately
is on high. I was making a pot of coffee and turned the burner
down to very low after percolating the coffee.
I guess a breeze blew out the small flame and it was not noticed.

Later I prepared a pot for the next morning and set it on the burner.
Got up at five, went to turn the burner on and then noticed the knob
was not in the right position. Went to turn it off and it hit the igniter.
WOOOOOFFFFF. Singed the hair all up my arm and slightly burned
my fingers.
Guess the "alert" did not pick up the gas as I had a window open.

I liked the separate igniter on the last stove as it was totally
separate from the burner knobs.

Lesson learned

That kind of problem is why I got a single-cup electric coffee brewer. Mine (a Black & Decker) doesn't use "pods" but a regular (small) filter and my own ground coffee.

I don't like having the stove burners turned real low.

When I am plugged in, I use electric also.
When I am not, I use the perc.
I also do not cook on high heat, as the burners
need to be turned down.

This was a lesson learned and I came out OK.

That's a "French Press" also known as a "Pec-o-later"..very popular in all the gyms.

Couldn't resist either......

On a serious note, glad you were not seriously hurt which you could have been. The open window/vent probably saved you. I remember my Dad always opened a window behind the stove and/or turned on the vent fan on our older truck campers before lighting the stove. Kinda like turning on a bilge blower and running the fans before cranking the gasoline inboard engines. Still a habit I have today. (He also went outside every night and turned off the propane...even going without the propane heater on a cold night)
