Easy Dos and Don'ts - To Prevent Burns

Do:

  • Use potholders, gloves and mitts. Never use wet material as a potholder.


  • Adjust burner flames to cover only the bottom of the pan.


  • Check hot food on stoves carefully.

  • Use caution when removing items from the microwave.


  • Wear sturdy footwear that protects your feet.

Don't:
  • Leave hot oil unattended.


  • Lean over pots of boiling liquids.


  • Spill water into hot oil.


  • Allow pot handles or cooking utensils to stick out from counters or stove front and keep pot handles away from burners.


  • Use metal containers, foil or utensils in microwave ovens.
