Cooking Safety

  • Always turn pot handles, so children can't reach them or pull them over.
  • If grease catches fire, smother it first with a lid, or use baking soda to smother the flames. Turn off the burner if you can, and never use water to put out a grease fire.
  • Keep dish towels away from the stove top and watch loose fitting garments from catching on fire, especially the sleeves.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher handy and available.
  • Practice safe cooking and never leave your cooking unattended.
