I am not so great in the kitchen.
I once suffered second-degree burns working at a restaurant after being told to take a plate that had just come out of the oven. Suffice it to say, that job didn’t last long.
I once placed a pan on the stove before removing the paper underneath it. Suffice it to say, I had a lot of ashy paper debris to clean up.
And I know someone who once placed a Pyrex pan on top of a hot stove.
So maybe you’re not the kitchen dummy I am, but that doesn’t mean you’re immune from burns and fires that can occur in one of the most used rooms in your home.
In honor of National Burn Awareness Week (Feb. 3 to 9), we figure now is as good a time as any to go over some safety tips to keep you cookin’ burn-free in the kitchen.
