- •Don't be shy with the "Off" switch.Frying bacon? Broiling the top of that delicious mac and cheese? Make sure to turn off the stove if you're stepping away even for a minute.
- •Set a timer.We love Thanksgiving Day parades and football games on TV too! Make sure to check on your turkey or casserole regularly and use a timer to remind you that food is cooking.
- •Create a safety zone.Things can get crazy in the kitchen during the holidays. Make sure that only pots and pans are on the stove. Keep anything that can catch on fire – like grandma's crocheted potholders, towels, plastic and clothes – away from the stove.
- •Keep an eye on pets.Fido is used to grabbing a nibble off the counter? Frankie the Feline stalking your picture-perfect pumpkin pie? Prevent a fire by keeping pets away from countertops, cooking surfaces, and anything that could be knocked onto a burner.
