How to not forget the stove is on?

I've burned several skillets, by forgetting to turn the burner off?

  • never had that problem

    soon as the foods done pans go on the butcherblock countertop and foods on plates then the pans are in the sink soakin before i eat

    ive left the oven on but it clicks as the element cycles on & off so i usually catch it quick enough

  • Like, turn it off when you're done cooking the food.

  • I'm always paranoid about that sort of thing, so I check my dials over and over to make sure they're all pointed at "Off". I do it every time after I'm done cooking/eating, before I leave the house, and before I go to bed. I just don't feel right otherwise.

    • Omg the number of times I March ba upstairs to do one last final check is insane. Then sometimes on my way to work the firetruck goes the way my apartment is and I have a mini heart attack

      • I do the same!

        I also always have to check multiple times to make sure my doors are locked before I leave or go to bed, and have to watch my garage door close all the way before I leave, even if it isn't a windy day (as the wind sometimes messes with the sensor eyes that will make the door go back up).

  • Set an alarm on your phone or buy a timer and put it by the stove put it for an hour

  • Install a smoke detector close to the stove that'll sound when a pan statrs to burn. It's a pain in the butt sometimes but it'll help you avoid burning down the house.

  • Make a habit of turning the stove off before moving the food from the frying pan to your plate

  • I never left an oven on. Dont wanna burn down my house so it's on mind to always turn it off. Doubly so for the stove since I have a gas stove.
