Rik Humen On Cooking Safety Tips
(EMAILWIRE.COM, February 11, 2015 ) Edmonton, Alberta -- Cooking fires are the most common cause of home injuries and home fires where the leading cause of kitchen fire is unattended cooking. Rik Humen, product manager of Rhumen Quality Silicone Oven Mitts in Amazon, shares some tips to maintain safety at home and to prevent fire. The Silicone oven mitts are said to be a good addition to any kitchen as it is flame resistant.
"There are some things that you can do in order to avoid cooking fires. Most of these use common sense but sometimes, these things are easily forgotten. For example, if you have consumed alcohol or is sleepy never use the stove. Make sure you are completely alert when using the stovetop or the stove," Humen says.
Humen also suggests staying in the kitchen when broiling, grilling or frying food. If there really is a need to leave the kitchen, turn the stove off. "When roasting, baking or simmering food, make sure to check it every now and then. Stay at home when food is cooking and set a timer as reminder," Humen suggests.
Humen also warns to keep things that can catch fire away from the stove top. These things can include wooden utensils, potholders, food packaging, curtains or towels. Humen suggests using silicone oven mitts that are usually flame resistant.
In case a cooking fire has started, Humen says to just get out of the house and close the door in order to contain the fire. "Immediately call 911 or your local emergency hotline. When trying to fight the fire, ensure that others have gotten out and that you have a sure way out," Humen adds.
Humen suggests keeping a lid close by when cooking to help stop small grease fires. This can be done by covering the pan with the lid and turning off the stovetop. For oven fires, turn the heat off and keep the oven door closed.
