Are Deep Fat Fryers Safe?

Chip pan fires can and do happen. But if you take sensible precautions, they should be avoidable. Here are some tips to help keep you and your family safe:

  • If using a thermostatic Deep Fat Fryer, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • If you’re using a ‘homemade’ chip pan never fill it more than a third full of oil.
  • Never leave any kind of fryer unattended. The phone will have to wait!
  • Don’t put too much food into the fryer at any one time as the oil could overflow causing a fire.
  • If the oil is smoking, don’t put any food in and turn the heat down immediately.

If A Fire Occurs:

– Turn off the heat if possible.
– Never throw water on it – this can make things much worse
– If you have one, put a fire blanket over the pan.
– Don’t try to move the pan or fryer.
– Call emergency services.
