Stoves & cooking range facts

June 24, 2009 RENU

  1. Clean away any grease, oil or debris from the area around burners to prevent fires.
  2. Keep pot handles turned inward, away from the edge of the stove.
  3. Don’t wear long, loose sleeves that can hang over the stove while cooking.
  4. Flammable fabrics, such as towels, dish rags or curtains can be ignited merely by being used or stored near a gas or electric range.
  5. Vapors from contact cement, gasoline, cleaning fluids or other flammable liquids can be ignited by the pilot of the kitchen range.
  6. If using matches to lit burners, always light match before turning on the gas.
  7. Never use water to put out a grease fire. Use baking soda, or if a fire is in a pan, smother the flames with a lid. A fire extinguisher in the kitchen is also recommended.
