Tips For Safe Cooking This Winter

Things to remeber while cooking inside, whether it be pan frying,broiler or oven, or microwave.

PRLog - Feb. 8, 2013 - PETERBOROUGH, Ontario -- Tips for Safe Cooking
Hot comfort foods taste so good when it is cold and blustery in the winter! When cooking your favorite foods remember;

If you are pan frying, keep a pan lid or cookie sheet handy in case grease or oil catch on fire. Slide the lid or cookie sheet over the top of the pan to smother the fire. Never move a flaming pot or pan away from the stove. This can fan the flames and spread the fire. The pan will also be very hot, risking you dropping it and causing more damage. Smother the fire immediately sliding the lid over the pan. Turn off the heat and start the exhaust fan.

Keep your oven clean to avoid grease and food splatters from igniting. Wear your oven mitts to avoid serious burns. When you use your broiler, keep the rack 2-3 inches away from the element. A drip pan beneath the broiler rack will catch fat drippings. Never use aluminum foil as the fat can catch fire or spill over the foil.

When using your microwave use caution and remember food high in fat or sugar heat very quickly even though they may feel cool to the touch. Do not use tin foil or any other metal objects in the microwave. If there is fire, keep the door closed and unplug the oven. Make sure it is checked out by a technician before using again after a fire.

Eat well and embrace life!
