Safety in the kitchen has always been the advocacy of the country’s top LPG provider, Solane. But beyond the usage of safe, legitimate LPG tanks, homemakers should watch out for other hazards of cooking—from handling sharp knives, working with hot surfaces to making sure the food is properly cooked. So take off your apron first and read on to learn how we can make the kitchen safer for us and our families.
Do not rush
Unless you are a pro, you should not run around the kitchen like you are joining a speed cooking contest. Also, when you lift a cover off a boiling pot, pull the cover toward you so you do not burn your hand. Steam can burn easily as boiling liquid so be careful around simmering or boiling food.
Read the label
One way to avoid botulism, a fatal paralytic illness caused by a toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum, is to refrigerate all food items labeled “Keep Refrigerated.” Botulism usually comes from improper canning and dented or swollen cans so refrigerating those canned foods can save your life.
Handle knives properly
Before using knives, you should keep the blades sharp and clean to prevent them from slipping and cutting yourself. Always cut away from your body and always use a cutting board. Wash the knives with warm soapy water but make sure you do not leave them lying around the sink because they may not be seen immediately and might cause accidents.
Promptly clean up spills
Clean up spills of water, grease and food to avoid accidents in the kitchen. It is better to turn off the stove first and clean the floor so you don’t slip or fall.
Use authentic LPG tanks
Do not risk the lives of your family with illegitimate LPG tanks because it could result in disaster. Instead, purchase a Solane LPG tank that now carries a safety cap and seal for their A/S valves.
“The new safety cap and seal exemplify Solane’s commitment to innovation and safety. It is a service that we are committed to provide to our customers to ensure their safety and protection while using LPG at home or at work,” said Isla LPG Corp. chief executive officer Ruben Domingo.
Other than sealing the tank, it also provides a means of checking the authenticity of the tank. A tab on the Solane safety cap and seal has a serial number printed on it. This serial number can be checked online for authenticity. With this serial number tab you can be 100% sure that your Solane LPG tank is filled properly and legally by Solane.
