Cooking Safety Tips From Rhumen Manager
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 24, 2015 ) Edmonton, Alberta -- Cooking fires are a common cause of home fires and injuries while unattended cooking is considered the most common cause of kitchen fire. Product manager Rik Humen, shares some tips that would help customers maintain safety in their homes that will help prevent fires. Rhumen Quality is the distributor of Rhumen Quality Silicone Oven Mitts, which is also considered as a good addition to the kitchen since it is flame resistant.
Humen says, "There are things that can be done in order to prevent cooking fires. Most of these things just require common sense but a lot of times, these things are just taken for granted. For instance, using the stove when a person is sleepy or has consumed alcohol is obviously dangerous but is always taken for granted. Ensure complete awareness when using the stove or stovetop."
Humen also recommends staying in the kitchen when grilling, broiling or frying food. If there is an important reason to leave the kitchen, ensure that the stove is turned off. Humen adds, "When baking, roasting or simmering food, ensure that you check it always. Set a timer as a reminder that something is cooking and never leave the house."
Humen recommends keeping flammable things away from the stove top. Wooden utensils, food packaging, pot holders, dish towels and curtains are some examples. Humen also suggests using Silicone oven mitts for pot holders since these do not easily catch fire.
If a cooking fire has begun, Humen recommends getting out of the house as soon as possible and close the door to contain the fire. Call 911 or the local emergency number. If planning to fight the fire, make sure that other people in the house have already gotten outside and that there is a sure way out.
When cooking, it would be helpful to have a lid close by that could help stop small grease fires, says Humen. Covering the pan with a lid and then turning the stovetop will stop a small grease fire. When dealing with oven fires keep the oven door closed and turn the heat off.
