Grill pan fire safety tips

Most fires start in the kitchen and a major cause of these fires is a build up of fat and oil in grill pans.  The fat and oil can easily ignite when heated so please clean your grill pan regularly.

To avoid a fire and to keep your family safe, clean your grill after you have used it.  This can help to prevent a nasty fire that could cause damage to your home or, worse still, it could cost lives.
