Handle a Kitchen Fire ! (Oil)

Let us just make sure that we do not get into situation to handle fire. There is nothing wrong in knowing about safety.
Ofcourse we learn a lot during out schooling about combustion. What water can do and all those. Any one could go wrong when he has to handle a fire in his kitchen due to PANIC
When you are handling Oil
  • Do not leave the oil in the pan unattended.
  • Do not pour oil into a very hot pan.
  • Do not use a thin bottom pan for frying. Steel vessels or pans tend to heat up very soon.
  • Keep the lid of the pan near. Once the frying is done, try not to move the oil, close it with a lid and let it cool for some time.
  • Do not pour the hot oil in the sink and put on the tap. It might burn the sink pipe and fire.
What should not be done during grease (oil) fire ?
  • DO NOT lift the pan that has caught fire or about to catch fire.
  • DO NOT try to pour the oil into the sink or put on the water tap. This could increase the fire drastically.
  • DO NOT throw water on the oil pan.
What should be done to put off the fire ?
  • Close the vessel with a lid. or
  • Wet a cloth and close the vessel. (watch the below video)
Most of the small kitchen fire becomes unmanageable when any of the above two are not followed. DO NOT PANIC
  • Banking soda helps to extinguish fire (not baking powder)
  • Put on your kitchen gloves when you have to handle any thing hot.

Do you have fire extinguishers at home ? If YES do u know to operate it ?
  • Check the pressure gauge of the fire extinguisher so that it works when the need arise.
  • Learn how to use the extinguisher.
In case your hands are burnt by oil or fire, keep your hands under the tap and run cold water as long as possible before you rush to a doctor.
