Safety Tips

Never use water to extinguish grease fires. Use baking soda or a Multipurpose ABC fire extinguisher.
Keep a pan lid or baking sheet nearby when cooking. Use it to cover a pan that catches fire.
Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove so that no one can bump them or pull them over.
Stand by your pan. If you leave the kitchen turn the burner off.
