Safety in the Kitchen

  • Never leave cooking unattended. Turn off appliances as soon as you are done, and unplug electrical appliances when not in use.
  • Keep your stove-top and oven clean to prevent built-up grease from catching on fire.
  • Wear snug-fitting sleeves while cooking. Loose-fitting clothes can catch fire when they dangle near hot burners.
  • Keep dish towels, potholders, curtains and other flammables away from the stove.
  • Prevent burns by turning pot handles inward so they cannot be bumped or pulled over by a child.
  • Never allow children or pets to play in the area where you are cooking. Create a 3-foot “child/pet free” zone near the oven/stove.
  • Watch out for microwave burns. Use potholders to remove food, remove lids carefully to prevent steam burns, and test food temperature before eating.
  • Do not overload electrical outlets. Make sure your hands, and the floor you are standing on, are dry before handling electrical appliances.
