Safety in the kitchen

  • Knives used for cooking are often very sharp so be careful not to cut yourself
  • When cutting food, try and cut away from your body so that if the knife slips it doesn't cut you
  • Ovens and hobs can get very hot so make sure you wear oven gloves so you don't burn yourself
