Cooking Safety Tips for Lincoln Park

The leading cause of cooking fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. SERVPRO® of Gold Coast /Lincoln Park /Lakeview offers these cooking safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Cook with Caution

  • Be on alert! If you are sleepy or have consumed alcohol, don’t use the stove or stovetop.
  • Stay in the kitchen while you are frying, boiling, grilling, or broiling food
  • If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove
  • If you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking
  • Use a timer to remind you that you are cooking
  • Keep anything that can catch fire — oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains — away from your stovetop

If you have a small grease cooking fire and decide to fight the fire...

  • On the stovetop, smother the flames by sliding a lid over the pan and turning off the burner, and leave the pan covered until it is completely cooled.
  • For an oven fire, turn off the heat and keep the door closed
