Safety in the Kitchen
Many foods are fried. Be careful when frying foods. When you add food to a frying pan, the hot oil may burn you. When you remove food from the pan, the hot oil may burn you. Use a long-handled utensil when frying food. It will decrease your chances of being burned.
Keep pan handles turned in toward the center of the stove. Handles that stick out over the floor can cause great harm. A curious child may pull on the handle and spill hot oil all over her body.
Do not leave towels or napkins on or near the stove. These could easily start on fire. Do not wear loose clothing with floppy sleeves while cooking. Loose clothing can get caught on pan handles. It could also fall into hot grease and may start on fire.
Be very careful when frying foods. Hot oil is painful and causes deep burns. Do not move or carry a pan with hot oil in it. It could burn you.
