Future use of cooking oil spurs reminder about fire safety

título

Por LisaMarie Sinatra

I came across this cool little article in Modern Farmer,

And okay, I admit that most of us won’t be flying on planes powered by fruits or seeds in the very near future, but we will still be cooking with oil in our kitchens. So, take the time to play it safe. Learn the do’s and don’ts of cooking with oil on our Cooking Fire Safety Central webpage, and consider the following:

  • Always stay in the kitchen when frying on the stovetop.
  • Keep an eye on what you fry. If you see wisps of smoke or the oil smells, immediately turn off the burner and/or carefully remove the pan from the burner. Smoke is a danger sign that the oil is too hot.
  • Heat the oil slowly to the temperature you need for frying or sautéing.
  • Add food gently to the pot or pan so the oil does not splatter.

Keeping these and other tips top of mind as you cook ensures you and your family can greatly reduce the risk of a cooking fire. And who knows, that next plane you hear flying overhead may just get its power from the stirfry you’re preparing for tonight’s dinner!
