Not only can overcooking ruin your dinner menu, but it can also lead to a small fire or a ringing smoke detector.

Tip: Assign at least one person to keep an eye on the food in the kitchen — take shifts if necessary. Double-check that the stove, oven, and pressure cooker are powered off when cooking is finished before leaving the kitchen.

Holiday lights


Too many plugs, wires, and lights in one space can cause a holiday fire or blow a fuse.
