Cooking Fire Safety Checklist from Domino's and NFPA 1. Clean your oven. Oven fires can occur when oil/grease and burnt on carbon deposits are overheated and ignite. 2. Clean your stove tops. Crumbs of food and grease can quickly ignite when the open flame of a stove top is turned on. 3. Keep anything that can catch fire -- oven mitts, wooden utensils, food packaging, towels or curtains -- away from your stovetop. 4. Follow manufacturer's instructions and code requirements when installing, cleaning, and operating cooking equipment. 5. Always plug cooking appliances directly into an outlet. Never use an extension cord for a cooking appliance as it can overload the circuit and cause a fire. 6. Check electrical cords for cracks, breaks, or damage. 7. Have a "safety zone" where children and pets are not allowed, of at least 3 feet around the stove and areas where hot food or drink is prepared or carried. 8. Always wear short, close-fitting or tightly rolled sleeves when cooking. Loose clothing can dangle onto stove burners and can catch fire if it comes in contact with a gas flame or electric burner. 9. Always stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If you leave the kitchen for even a short period of time, turn off the stove. 10. While simmering, baking, roasting, or boiling food, check it regularly, remain in the home while food is cooking, and use a timer to remind you that you are cooking.
