Knives can cause cuts during use and when they're being washed. Knives that are stored improperly can also cause cuts. Burns from handling hot food, touching hot pots or burners and from kitchen fires can also be quite serious. Proper safety in the kitchen and practicing proper use and storage techniques can lessen the incidence of accidents with knives, while using pot holders and keeping a fire extinguisher nearby can reduce the risk of accidents caused by burns.
