I haven't put them in my oven, but I have a special kind of fabric strips to put on the edge of the oven racks to help keep away from getting metal burns on the oven racks!

I have a fire extinquisher, but it isn't in the kitchen! When I practiced with the fire department on putting out fires, there is a knack that must be developed so you don't spread the flames!

They need to invent something so I don't burn my bahooties on the inside of my wall oven door when I reach inside.

Party chef, I had a similar problem, I started wearing a proper fitting bra, while baking. If that does not solve the problem then maybe you should purchase a traditional stove with oven. In answer to your question, sueb, I keep baking soda close to the stove for grease fires and never fry bacon in short sleeves. The splatters hurts.

My fave safety item is a mesh cutting glove I keep with my mandolin. Without it I'm sure I would have had stitches or served an annoying fingertip in a salad! Lol! BB&B carries them.

LMAO, so it is safe to eat finger sandwiches, even chicken fingers at Mickdee's house? It sounds like pc needs a set of oven gloves for her knockers, maybe someone could knit you a set, or would it be a pair? I use the oven door as a shelf, but only to rest the hot foods on, not to lean on LOL

Party Chef, you need to invent something to protect yourself and make millions of dollars! LOL!

Cheryl I can assure you my bahooties are pointing north when I use my oven. As for a traditional stove and oven that's out of the question, but thanks for your input!

Lela it would help if I was taller than 5'2! I'd use a step ladder but I'd probably fall off and break my neck!

Kitchen SAFETY is very important to me... For example, in my kitchen island, the large left drawer has all the SHARP things... That way, no one is rummaging through the other drawers 'fishing/looking' for the pizza cutter, knives, sharp forks, etc. Also, be CAREFUL to load the dishwasher cutlery area, because it would be easy for someone to accidentally get cut on something unexpected... I often wash sharp knives separately for that reason!

I use my kitchen scissors to cut so many things, from dates to green beans to clipping/separating chicken wings to tortillas (and quesadillas) to cutting thin baked goods into serving pieces to cutting herbs and new ideas come to me often (lol)... I keep my kitchen shears CLEAN... Once you get used to using them, it saves time, but I still use various knives for other things. I think scissors are safer for some things?
