Don’t Fry Your Kitchen: Cooking Tips for Reducing Fire Hazards

Unless you’re a professional chef in Pismo Beach, California with multiple Michelin stars, you’ve probably burned something while cooking at least once in your life. While a bit of burnt dessert won’t kill anyone, large kitchen fires could cause serious bodily harm and leave you with extensive fire damage. That’s why it’s always a good idea to follow a few key rules when you’re in the kitchen that are designed to reduce the likelihood of experiencing fire hazards while you’re making that perfect meal. Here are three tips to help you stay safe.

Stay in the Kitchen

Whether you’re boiling, frying or toasting, you should always stay in the kitchen while you’re cooking. Attending to your food helps you to prevent fires before they begin. If you need to leave the room for any reason while you’re cooking, turn the stove off and remove your food from the heat until you return.

Use a Timer

One of the best tips is also one of the easiest to follow. Sometimes, it’s hard to stay focused. That’s why it’s crucial to use a timer while you’re cooking. Thousands of fires are started each year simply because someone forgot they were making dinner, and the food sat in the heat for just a bit too long. Timers help to call attention to your food when necessary, and ensure it’s not left to burn.

Keep Your Cooking Space Clean

Keep curtains, pot holders, oven mitts, wooden/plastic spoons and everything else away from the stove while it’s being used. Having a cluttered workspace while you’re dealing with high heat or flames can only lead to disaster. You’ll also need to clean your cooking spaces regularly in order to prevent any grease buildup that could otherwise lead to a grease fire.

Following these tips can drastically reduce the likelihood of accidentally starting a fire while you’re cooking. Taking a little extra time in the kitchen goes a long way towards preventing fire damage and danger in your home.
