A young girl who got her hand caught in a juicer has been taken to hospital with the appliance still attached.

We hope this poor little girl makes a speedy recovery. Accidents so easily happen and we hope mum isn’t beating herself up too much.  We all know how bad that horrible mum guilt is.

It was reported the pre-school aged Victorian girl has hand injuries after she got her hand caught in the juicer in Port Arlington on Friday morning, an ambulance spokesman says.

She was taken to Geelong Hospital in a stable condition with her hand still stuck in the appliance, reports 9 news.

Kids in the Kitchen

Adult supervision is always recommended when children are using any kitchen appliance.

For younger children (ages 6-12), it’s recommended that an adult is always watching.

Explain to the kids the concept of sous chef (an assistant chef) and how vital they are in restaurants and that they can be your sous chef in the home kitchen, listening to your instructions and making sure the meal is prepared properly and safely.

Always remember to unplug appliances when they are not in use so your child cannot accidentally turn them on. Don’t allow electrical cords to dangle where your child can reach and tug on them, possibly pulling a heavy appliance down on themselves.

  • yep you need to be vigilant and be aware that they are just little and keep them away from danger. educate them on not touching things that are dangerous and why it is dangerous


  • My pre school aged kids are not allowed in the kitchen area apart from the cutlery drawer to get non sharp items to help set the table for meals….because they want to help. They can’t safely reach things on the benches as they are higher than normal ones. Items not being used are always switched off at the power point. Many are then stored in cupboards when they have gone cold. At school age they are allowed to help with some things under strict supervision.


  • Thats terrible!


  • This sounds horrendous. You truly can’t be too careful.


  • There can be so many dangers in the kitchen indeed. While cooking, using appliances, cutting… Hopefully the girl’s hand is fine!!
