  • 43. Watch What You Heat
    The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking.
    Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove.
    If you are simmering, baking, roasting, or boiling food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you're cooking.
    Stay alert! To prevent cooking fires, you have to be alert. You won't be if you are sleepy, have been drinking alcohol, or have taken medicine that makes you drowsy.
  • 44. Kitchen Area
    Keep anything that can catch fire - potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper or plastic bags, food packaging, towels, or curtains - away from your stovetop.
    Keep the stovetop, burners, and oven clean.
    Keep pets off cooking surfaces and nearby countertops to prevent them from knocking things onto the burner.
    Wear short, close-fitting or tightly rolled sleeves when cooking. Loose clothing can dangle onto stove burners and catch fire if it comes into contact with a gas flame or electric burner.
  • 45. Protect Children from Scalds and Burns
    Young children are at high risk of being burned by hot food and liquids. Keep children away from cooking areas by enforcing a "kid-free zone" of 3 feet (1 meter) around the stove.
    Keep young children at least 3 feet (1 meter) away from any place where hot food or drink is being prepared or carried. Keep hot foods and liquids away from table and counter edges.
    When young children are present, use the stove's back burners whenever possible.
  • 46. Cooking Safety
    Never hold a child while cooking, drinking, or carrying hot foods or liquids.
    Teach children that hot things burn.
    When children are old enough, teach them to cook safely. Supervise them closely.
  • 47. If Your Clothes Catch Fire
    If your clothes catch fire, stop, drop, and roll. Stop immediately, drop to the ground, and cover face with hands. Roll over and over or back and forth to put out the fire. Immediately cool the burn with cool water for 3 to 5 minutes and then seek emergency medical care.
  • 48. How and When to Fight Cooking Fires
    When in doubt, just get out. When you leave, close the door behind you to help contain the fire. Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number after you leave.
    If you do try to fight the fire, be sure others are already getting out and you have a clear path to the exit.
  • 49. Cooking Safety
    Always keep an oven mitt and a lid nearby when you are cooking. If a small grease fire starts in a pan, smother the flames by carefully sliding the lid over the pan (make sure you are wearing the oven mitt). Turn off the burner. Do not move the pan. To keep the fire from restarting, leave the lid on until the pan is completely cool.
    In case of an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed to prevent flames from burning you or your clothing.
  • 50. Cooking Safety
    If you have a fire in your microwave oven, turn it off immediately and keep the door closed. Never open the door until the fire is completely out. Unplug the appliance if you can safely reach the outlet.
    After a fire, both ovens and microwaves should be checked and/or serviced before being used again.
  • 51. Smoke Alarms
    Have a working smoke alarm!
    Treat every smoke alarm activation as a likely fire and react quickly and safely to the alarm.
    If a smoke alarm sounds during normal cooking, press the pause button if the smoke alarm has one. Open the door or window or fan the area with a towel to get the air moving. Do not disable the smoke alarm or take out the batteries.
