How to do

1. Take a cover with a long handle preferably.

2. Gradually cover the pan with it.

3. Wait a few seconds.

4. Gently remove the cover.


And there you have it, you put out the oil fire quickly without risk 🙂

Of course, this trick works just as well with a pan as it does with a saucepan.

Don’t have a lid with a long handle? We recommend this one.

NEVER throw water on burning oil!

Did you know that you should never try to extinguish an oil fire with water? You do not believe me ? Watch what happens in slow motion in the video above.

Why ? Because if you put water on burning oil, the water sinks to the bottom of the pan, then boils in an instant and expels all the oil in the air, which considerably increases the combustion surface.

Result, the fire will grow instead of dying! It can end very badly … Some people have burnt down their kitchen or house with this bad method.

Your turn…
