There is no specific example to cite for this one, as it is visible ''everywhere'' in Neelix's kitchen.  It is an ergonomic and safety nightmare.  He leaves kitchen utensils, including sharp ones, lying about in unsafe positions, but the most blatant example of this problem is visible in his ''burner setup.''  Neelix's burners are positioned so high that, while he is operating the stove, the tops of the pots are at almost the level of his neck or chin.  This is very unsafe and an ''absolute ergonomic nightmare.''  Burns in the kitchen ''are a very serious matter'', and having pots (and burners) filled with hot liquids at that height is asking to have them tipped over onto someone.  This is even more appalling considering that he is operating his kitchen on a spaceship that tends to swerve and bounce about at any possible moment.

Barring that, watch him try to cook in those pots, and the absolutely awkward ways he must hold the utensils to stir anything in them, to realize the other reason those positions are moronic.  Stew pots should always be lower then chest level; it just makes everything much simpler to manage.  In point of fact, this is why many industrial burners designed for use with high-capacity stockpots actually have stove-tops sometime a ''half foot lower'' then normal commercial ranges.
