7 Kitchen Safety Tips to Consider | Allstate Insurance


For many people, the kitchen is the heart of their home but it's also a room that can be hazardous if not used and organized properly Following these safety tips may help keep you and your family safe while cooking in the kitchen

First, keep anything that may catch fire, like dish towels or oven mitts, for example, away from your cooktop And remember: You should never leave the kitchen while food is cooking Here's a trick when taking a lid off a hot pan: Tilt the lid away from you to help protect your face and hands from steam If a grease fire starts, don't use water; it'll only make it worse! Quickly put a lid on the pot or pan and have a fire extinguisher nearby We've all burned something now and then setting off the smoke detector but as tempting as it may be you should never tamper with a smoke detector when cooking

If you've got little ones in the house keep a "kid-free zone" of at least 3 feet around the oven and stove Use a safety gate if possible Finally, unattended, plugged-in appliances on your countertop may create an unnecessary risk of fire So play it safe and unplug them For more safety tips, head to allstate
