Kitchen Safety: 8 Tips to Avoid Thanksgiving Cooking Mishaps!

Have these tips in mind to keep your holiday cooking safe! 

  • Stand by your pan! Unattended cooking is the top cause of kitchen fires. This threat is three times greater on Thanksgiving! 
  • Don’t wear loose-fitting clothing with long sleeves near ranges or ovens. 
  • Watch kids so they don’t come into contact with hot stovetops. 
  • Turn pan handles toward the back of the stove. 
  • In the event of a fire, call 911. 
  • Cover a pan with a lid to smother the flames. 
  • Never pour water or flour onto a fire – that can make the fire worse. 
  • Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen!

Here's to a safe Thanksgiving!
