Kitchen Explosions

Anyone who knows the basics of cooking understands that a kitchen can be a dangerous area. Burns, cuts, and falls are all risks, especially when a person is distracted by several ongoing dishes. What many people do not realize is that a kitchen can be the scene of a particularly serious accident: an explosion.

Causes of Kitchen Explosions

A serious kitchen fire can be the result of a very simple mistake. Some of the more common causes of kitchen explosions include:

  • Carelessness with flour. Many people do not realize that thrown or spilled flour fills the air with many individually flammable particles. This means that a cloud of flour can ignite and form a fireball in your home. The most common cause of flour explosions is the attempt to use flour to put out a kitchen fire. Never place flour anywhere near a flame.
  • Overheated glass containers. Too often glass containers are left on heated burners, either in an effort to keep them warm or out of simple forgetfulness. Glass can shatter when it becomes overheated, sometimes causing shrapnel to fly through the kitchen.
  • Improperly stored combustible materials. Many kitchens feature a pantry located just above the stove. Over the years, many people have stored canisters of common kitchen products, including spray-on oil or even insect repellant. Canisters stored near a cooking device can become overheated to the point of explosion.
