Preventing Kitchen Fires

Keeping your appliances clean and well-serviced, unplugging electrical equipment and installing a smoke detector are all steps that can help to prevent a kitchen fire. In the latest post from Cooker Solutions, we take a look at ways you can prevent fire in the kitchen in more detail, keeping you and your home safe.

Installing a Smoke Detector

It is important to have a smoke detector installed in your home, far enough away from the kitchen so as not to raise the alarm each time you cook food, but close enough to the kitchen to detect smoke that signals a fire.

Service and Clean Your Appliances

Keeping your kitchen appliances clean and well-serviced will help to reduce the risk of a fire, ensuring that all elements are working correctly and that there is no flammable build-up of grease.

Unplug Electrical Appliances

When your appliances are not in use, it makes sense to unplug them. Some appliances will draw electricity even when they are not in use, so not only could turning them off save you money, it could also prevent your items such as the thermostat overheating and causing a fire.

Quick Tips

Tie your hair back and roll up your sleeves when cooking

Never leave cooking food unattended

Keep tea towels and washcloths away from the cooker

Remove jewellery, especially long necklaces and dangly bracelets
