Don’t cook if you have been drinking alcohol.
Take care when cooking with oil – if it starts to smoke it is too hot, so just turn off the heat and leave to cool. Don’t add water!
Children should not be left alone in the kitchen when cooking on the hob, and keep the saucepan handles and matches out of their reach.
If you have to leave the kitchen, take pans off the heat and keep electrical leads, tea towels and cloths away from the cooker.
