Have you ever burned yourself when you cooked something?

Cooking is an art, but it is not for everyone. When the type of food is even harder to do, it can all get trickier (especially if you're a very distracted person). So, getting burned ends up being an almost natural accident in the kitchen. Has this ever happened to you?

Oh yes! I have an aloe Vera plant to rub gel on when I burn myself.

Actually I have burned myself when I was doing something on the stove. I was so angry at a person so I stupidly poured boiling water on my hand and have the scar to show for it. At that time the person was of no use and did not think to put it under cold water right away.

Sure enough. I burnt myself the other day taking a dish out of the oven and burnt my arm on the oven door. Still hurts!!

Yes I have burnt myself ,while cooking. But there was no severe burns. Its natural to get burns when we cook food in kitchen,but we must be really very careful when handling gas burners. If we are not careful while using it, we may end up getting ourselves burnt. So we have to have full concentration when we are cooking..

Never, never, never! Ok, maybe once or twice or a few times Usually hot oil on a frying pan is the culprit

no cause when I cook I don't want any distractions around me so I make sure that no one will be in the way or be distracting me.

I've been making applesauce lately, and when it splashes on me, I have to quickly get the area under running water. Hot applesauce is very dangerous because it can result in serious burns very quickly. I got burned over a month ago when it splattered onto my chest, and it's still not healed. A whole bunch splashed onto my hand a few days ago, but I got it under water fast, so it didn't leave any marks.

Yes, sometime It could be because of the hot cooking oil, hot pan, hot open, or hot cooked food.
