You may be a good cook or you may be a bad cook but all of us should also be a SMART COOK. 1. While cooking always supervise yourselves and the kids around in the kitchen. 2. Keep all the handles of your pots inwards, avoid wearing loose long sleeves in the kitchen, keep the ventilators open and keep the exhaust fan on. 3. Never pour water on an oil fire. Instead carefully slide a lid over the pan and put off the burner. 4. When not cooking keep the knob of the cylinder closed. 5. Have the gas tube checked every month to ensure that there are no leakages. If you smell gas, turn off the cyliner immediately, open all windows and no not turn any electrical applicance on. ANY MORE SUGGESTIONS FROM OUR SMART COOKS?

Yes I do hope these tips benefit many here. What about you? Do you go to the kitchen to cook or help out or are you just a smart eater?

Good to know that you help around in the kitchen. I think just by helping you would learn to cook one day.

When ever a smart eater goes into the kitchen he should be aware of all that is going on there and see that things are safely kept. And ofcourse be vigilent.

You have some very good advice. Never ever leave young children cooking in the kitchen unsupervised. And the one about keeping the handles turned to the back is also good advice. If your stove has the knobs on the front and you have little kids running around remove those knobs so they can't turn on the stove while playing with them. Better yet keep them out of the kitchen unless Your in there with them. But sometimes they will get in there no matter what you do. Never ever set a hot pan where a small child can reach it or they can turn it over on them selves.

While I have something on the stove cooking I try and remain in the kitchen itself and finish all the small jobs and cleaning there. So there is not question of forgetting what is on the stove.

You are lucky now that you do not have to cook regularly. But whenever you go to the kitchen if you learn to be careful then the habits automatically stay with you. Hows dad now?

You make some very good points there. I am always telling my partner to turn the saucepan handles in as he often forgets to. A wet teatowel put over the top of the pan also works for an oil fire. Another one is if you have long hair tie it back when cooking as the last thing you want is to set your hair alight.
