How to Avoid Burning Yourself

The stovetop

  • Never leave a burner on high heat unattended.
  • Never walk away from oil or sugar as it's heating.
  • If you’re making something that needs to cook for a long time at a low temperature, set a timer so you remember to check it often.
  • Don’t leave the gas on for longer than 10 seconds if it’s not lighting. Turn it off briefly to allow it to disperse before trying again.

Pots and pans

  • Always keep a potholder handy.
  • Open lids away from you, and watch out for steam when doing so.
  • Always use a folded up kitchen towel or pot holder when grabbing something hot.
