Great Kitchens make cooking fun. It is a place where we depend on preparing all our favorite recipes and getting our desired meals. However, it could turn into a fire trap when in the wrong hands. For everyone, Kitchen safety is a priority and failure to adhere to some kitchen safety guidelines strictly could be hazardous.

It is safe to consider basic kitchen safety rules to reduce fire risk.


1.     Microwave Safety: To avoid fire outbreak, you are advised to plug your microwave directly into an outlet rather than an extension, except the extension cord is rated for its use. Additionally, be sure you don't use containers that have aluminum foil because these foils have metals in them that cause sparks, which may result in fire. Use a microwavable safe dish such as a paper plate, glass plate, and bowl. If your microwave catches fire, turn it off and call for help.

2.     Be close by

It is important to stay nearby when cooking, except for slow burners. Fire may begin within seconds when cooking or frying foods becomes too hot. Food can quickly transient from browning to burning and eventually into flames. Turn off your cooker when getting far away from the kitchen.

3.     Switch off Appliances: The use of appliances is safer when plugged directly into an outlet than an extension cord. It keeps the electrical appliance within the safety ratings, which avoids cable heat-up that can cause an eventual fire outbreak. Unplug your appliances after use.

4.     Understand your Equipment and Handle them properly: Getting familiar with complex kitchen tools and equipment is necessary for cooking. However, it is important to read instructions that come with appliances and understand how to use them. You won't be needing the services of a qualified restoration company when you do this.
