Cooking with gas can be convenient and efficient, but it also poses a fire hazard if proper safety measures are not taken. Here are some things you should not do when cooking with gas to avoid a fire.
Do not leave your cooking unattended. Always stay in the kitchen while cooking, and never leave a pan or pot unattended on the stove.
Do not wear loose clothing. Loose clothing can easily catch fire, so make sure to wear close-fitting clothes while cooking.
Do not use flammable liquids near the stove. Keep flammable liquids like alcohol and oil away from the stove to avoid accidental fires.
Do not place anything flammable near the stove. Avoid placing anything flammable, such as paper towels, dish towels, or oven mitts, near the stove.
Do not use the wrong cookware. Use only cookware that is designed for use with gas stoves. Avoid using lightweight or thin-bottomed pans that can easily tip over or warp when exposed to high heat.
Do not overload the stove. Do not place too many pots or pans on the stove at once. Overloading the stove can cause pots to tip over or flames to flare up, increasing the risk of fire.
By following these guidelines and practicing good fire safety habits, you can help prevent kitchen fires and keep your home safe.
