Safety tips in the kitchen

The kitchen is the hub of the home. It is where family members cook and share food together. Being the busiest area of the house, however, it is also where accidents and injuries commonly occur. In fact, most home fires start in the kitchen.

To prevent accidents, it is important to keep the kitchen safe and clean at all times. Solane, the countrys favorite cooking gas, provides the following safety tips:

Keep your kitchen organized. Designate specific areas in the kitchen for cooking, eating and storage of food ingredients, utensils, and all other necessities. Put knives and other potentially dangerous objects and substances away from childrens reach. Keep flammable materials and substances, like curtains and cooking oil, away from the stove.  Install a smoke alarm and fire extinguisher for emergencies.

Observe cleanliness. Ensure that all utensils are clean and dry before and after using them to avoid food contamination. Use hot and soapy water to clean utensils, sink and countertops. Wash and dry sponges and dishcloths after use to prevent bacterial growth. Do not forget to clean clutter and any spills in all areas of the kitchen, especially the floor, to avoid accidents.

Prepare food carefully. Always wash your hands before and after food preparation. Avoid wearing loose clothes when preparing food because it might catch fire from the stove or get caught in the cooking equipment. When frying, keep the oil from splattering by heating it slowly then putting the ingredients gently in the pan. If the oil overheats and catches fire, cover the pan with a lid then turn off the burner. Never throw water on burning oil to avoid spreading a grease fire.

Attend to your cooking at all times. Unattended cooking is the main cause of kitchen fires thats why its wise to stay in the kitchen during food preparation. Even if you are using an oven or a timer, its advisable to check it from time to time. Never forget to turn off the stove and all electrical equipment in the kitchen before leaving the area for an extended period of time.

Use authentic LPG cylinders. When using LPG for cooking, purchase only an LPG cylinder from reputable dealers and do not accept one that is not in good condition. The 11kg Solane LPG cylinder is available in 2 variants: the A/S type which has an automatic shutoff safety feature, and the POL type (“de roskas”) which is the more common alternative. Both types come with an innovative safety cap and seal, which protects the LPG tank by preventing dust and dirt from entering the valve which normally causes leaks. . The seal also ensures that the cylinder is filled properly and legally by Solane.

Place the LPG cylinder in a well-ventilated area in your home and away from sources of ignition. Always follow the manufacturers instructions regarding the use and maintenance of your LPG cylinder and gas appliance.

Observing basic rules of kitchen safety can go a long way in protecting yourself and your loved ones from accidents. Without recipes for disaster, you can focus more on cooking homemade dishes that are sure to delight everyone at the table.

Like everyone else, aging means CHANGE – psychological, behavior, intellectual even in physical. It is a stage of life were people age differently and experience aging differently based on the lifestyle factors like smoking, among other things or heredity. The question is how soon do we notice aging-related changes. Most people reach their peak noticing some changes at around age 30. Some age-related complaints are common like Uneven skin tone, wrinkles, fine lines and facial sagging. As the skin ages, the collagen loses its elasticity causing it to appear sagging and fine lines and wrinkles are visible on the face and neck.  

So how do Non-Surgical Facelifts work?

Fotona 4D Non-surgical facelift is a non-invasive treatment intended to freshen and rejuvenate the face without surgery. Our face is the most visible part of a person which creates a huge part of any first impression. With age, these muscles begin to tire and drop making your skin sag and wrinkle.
