Por LisaMarie Sinatra

A recent report on ConsumerReports.org highlights their seven scariest kitchen accidents and reminds people that taking extra precautions while cooking during the holidays can mean a world of difference in terms of your safety and the safety of your family.

Leading the Consumer Reports list of accidents is cooking fires, followed by injuries from knives, cookware, food processors, microwaves and blenders. It’s also important to note that during this time of year, still more injuries occur when people attempt to use turkey fryers, a practice NFPA greatly discourages.

NFPA de 2013 “Home Fires Involving Cooking Equipmentreport states that in 2011 Thanksgiving was the leading day for home cooking fires, with three times as many fires occurring on this holiday as any average day of the year. Christmas comes in second, with Christmas Eve rounding out the list in third place.

Now that we’re into November, let’s do our part to practice cooking safely. We all know that it gets chaotic around the holidays, but if you can carve out (oh! no pun intended!) just a few minutes to review NFPA’s cooking safety tips, it’ll go a long way to protecting you and your family from harm. So, before you start that mad dash to plan your menu and grocery shop, take a moment to download the cooking safety checklist and infographic and read through the information thoroughly. These and our videos are also great to share with other members of your family and your friends, so send them an email today!

In the end, no matter where you find yourself this holiday season, NFPA has a whole suite of great resources to help you plan a wonderful, safe holiday meal. Así que adelante, check out our Cooking Fire Safety Central webpages then relax and enjoy this special time of year with the ones you love.
