Electric Slow Cooker Appliance Starts Fire in Grand Rapids Kitchen?

10/10/2023 (Permalink)

A slow-cooking appliance is used to prepare a meal. We are leaders in fire damage restoration services in Itasca County.

Our Bemidji, Grand Rapids, and Hibbing teams are highly trained and certified to restore fire damage. Today, more people are using electronic cooking appliances to prepare meals. These appliances make it convenient to prepare meals, but it is important to know how to operate these appliances safely to avoid a cooking fire. Here are some safety tips for safely using a slow cooker from the National Fire Protection Association:

Key Safety Tips

  • Always use cooking appliances like air fryers, slow cookers, electric skillets, hot plates, griddles, etc., that are listed by a qualified testing laboratory.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on where and how to use.
  • Remember to unplug all appliances when not in use.
  • Check cords regularly for damage. Do not use any appliance with a damaged cord.

Slow Cooker

A slow cooker is designed to be left on while you do other things, even things outside of the home. However, there are a few safety tips to keep in mind:

  • Keep things that could catch fire away from the slow cooker.
  • Make sure the slow cooker is in a place where it won’t get bumped. If the lid gets dislodged, the liquid could boil away, which could cause the appliance to overheat and create a fire.
