Among all the cooking equipment in the market today, homeowners still choose gas stoves as their primary cooking partner because it is more energy efficient, durable, and convenient. When properly installed and maintained, a gas stove is a relatively safe appliance. However, it pays to be cautious during its use to avoid injuries and potential risks.
So equip yourself with these 3 gas stove safety tips to help make your home a danger-free zone and ensure your safety and the safety of your family.
Consider Your Cookware
Gas stoves are compatible with most types of cookware. However, to guarantee safety, the right size of your cookware must also be considered. When your gas stove is set to high, the flames should not extend up to the sides of the cookware where there is danger of reaching and burning your fingers. Using metal spoons to stir your cooking food may also result in burn injuries to your hand.
Check for Clogs
To prevent accidents, gas flames should never be left unattended. In case of delay in lighting up, turn the burner off and wait for a while before turning it on again. The recurrence of this interval may be caused by clogged burners and must be checked. Avoid and resolve this issue by keeping your burners clean and properly assembled all the time.
Cook with Care
Eliminate the chances of knocking the cookware over and spilling food everywhere by holding its handle firmly or instead, keeping it to the side. Use the back burner if the handles are protruding beyond the countertop so that small children cannot grab them and burn themselves with boiling hot food. Also, avoid using loose clothing or leaving dish towels near open flame because these can easily catch fire.
Gas stoves are truly a great appliance to have and as long as you take good care of them and follow safety precautions while cooking, you should be able to use them with no difficulty.
