Who left the coffee maker on?

(picture of coffee maker) This picture shows my coffee maker. It works pretty well except for one problem. The on/off switch, in front of the coffee maker, about 1/2 inch above the bottom, can be easily activated by accidently pushing a sponge or dinner plate against it. I noticed this problem when the cleaning lady accidently turned it on, twice, while cleaning the kitchen. Good thing it didn't burn the house down.

Design suggestion

When you decide where to place a control, you need to consider the environment that it is used in.
