Never try to cook when tired. I have a Kraft Vegemite cook book too that was given to me many years ago and absolutely treasure it. Whether you have a gas or electric stovetop, be sure anything that can catch fire is far away from the burners, including kitchen towels, paper towels, oven mitts, cookbooks and cooking oils. Stay in the kitchen until the cooking is done. But it is important to stay collected and act quickly to limit the amount of damage it causes. You can only save lives and reduce damage if you know what to do correctly. So we know that some ingredients will extinguish grease fires while others will spread and make the fire worse. Cold water in hot oil can lead to splashing of the oil making the fire worse. Water – we grow up understanding that water extinguishes flames but this is far from a good idea if it is a grease fire.
The morning before Christmas is a good time to unwrap it and check that it is OK. If this doesn’t work then it is time to look at other methods. Your dressing can then be covered with tiles or paint to taste. Pouring water on hot grease can cause the oil to splash everywhere, and may even spread the fire to other parts of the kitchen. Salt in the water will also keep a cracked egg inside its shell. Plus there are bedroom doors and kitchen doors, amongst others that will need to installed. However, there are common kitchen items that you can use as well to extinguish a grease fire if you don’t have the proper fire extinguisher on hand, making it a little easier on yourself to address such a situation. One of the most common sources for not only kitchen fires but home fires is grease. The best way to put out a grease fire is to use a fire extinguisher designed specifically for these types of fires.
Use a thermometer to monitor. Monitor the temperature of the grease at all times. This fire extinguisher contains PKP, which is a dry-chemical fire suppression agent and it’s 4 to 5 times more effective than CO2 and twice as effective as baking soda against class B fires, like grease fires. Throw salt, baking soda, or sand onto the fire to smother the flames. These will help if you need to smother the flame. 2. Smother the fire. Even as the water vaporizes, it can carry grease particles within it, which will help spread the fire. Never spray water onto a grease fire. Grease fires are one of the most common causes of fires in the home so it is only right that we put some of our attention on to this subject. Here are some common kitchen items and ways to put them out before they spread too far. Keep all flammable items away from stove where they could ignite.
If the fire has spread beyond the cooktop to anything nearby—curtains, counter, cupboard, wall—do not attempt to get near the stove. Never attempt to do any cooking when under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Keep a metal pot lid nearby while cooking just in case a grease fire starts. Leave the pot or pan right where it is. To be sure the fire is out, leave the lid or tray on until the pot or pan has cooled down. When possible, remove the heat source first before trying to remove the oxygen by using your metal pot lid. Always keep a metal pot lid next to where you’re working in case of fire. If you haven’t yet had the chance to invest in a proper fire extinguisher then you need to keep some things close at hand in case of fire. We recommend that you print these tips off and keep them somewhere they can easily be accessed should the time come. I use your salt tips a lot. It does require a lot more baking soda than it does salt but if it’s there, use it. Baking Powder – please don’t get this confused with baking soda mentioned in the section above.
Baking soda CAN be used but baking powder CAN’T. Scientists consider baking soda a type of salt. If you have baking soda or salt handy, dump it on the fire. If you don’t have a metal lid that’s large enough to cover the pan, you can try using a baking sheet instead. These toilets are big enough to carry one particular occupant. Vaporizing water can carry grease in it, which is another way the fire can spread. Remember, oil and water just don’t mix. You should always strive to use a cooking oil with a high smoke point for frying. Never leave food cooking on the stove unattended, whether frying, broiling, boiling or grilling. Grease fires occur when cooking oil is overheated. When placing the food into the oil, do so slowly to avoid oil splatter. Flour – I remember after we had had our fire a friend of mine jokingly stated “you should have put flour on it.” Our fire wasn’t hot oil but it just goes to show how wide these rumors spread. As a newbie to Vegemite you have to be carefull what you put it on.
