Cooking Safety Tips

Do you want to avoid a recipe for disaster? Follow this advice:

  • Look when you cook. Take any pans off the heat if you have to leave the room. If your pan does catch fire do not remove or attempt to extinguish it. Get out, stay out and call 999.
  • Do not use a chip pan, use a thermostat controlled electric deep fat fryer instead
  • Do not leave children alone in the kitchen whilst cooking with the hob or oven
  • Do not place anything metallic in the microwave
  • Keep electrical leads and cloths away from the hob
  • Avoid cooking if you have been drinking alcohol. Get a takeaway instead!
  • Keep the oven and grill clean, a build-up of fat and grease may catch fire
  • Take care if wearing loose clothing as it can easily catch fire particularly when using the hob
  • Set the timer on your oven to keep track of your cooking. When you have finished cooking, double check that you have turned off the oven
  • Do not use matches or lighters to light gas cookers. Spark devices are safer.
