Keep Kids Safe in the Kitchen

Watch pots on the stove when kids are near.

Keep Kids Safe in the Kitchen

Always watch your children when they cook. The kitchen has many hot, sharp and heavy things.

  • Keep young children a few feet away from the stove when it is on.
  • Always turn the handles of pots towards the center of the stove, so that they don’t stick out past the edge of the stove.
  • Always watch pots on the stove when kids are nearby.
  • Don't leave anything near the stove that could catch on fire, such as potholders or towels.
  • Keep knives out of reach of young children. Only allow kids to use them when you are coaching and watching.
  • If possible, have a small fire extinguisher in or near the kitchen.
