The 10 Most Dangerous Kitchen Gadgets

Here’s a surprising statistic: Three times as many house fires occur on Thanksgiving as compared to a typical day, reports the National Fire Protection Association. While it’s true that open flames or turkey fryers can quickly cause big damage, don’t discredit the power of a more humble object to ruin your family dinner. (If you’ve ever shaved your finger when a wet potato took a detour off your mandoline slicer, you know what we mean.)

Whether you’re a first-time cook or a well-seasoned pro, it’s wise to respect the power of your kitchen tools so you don’t hurt yourself or others. Always read the manufacturer’s instructions before trying out a new gadget – Hey, that food gripper comes with the mandoline blade for a reason! – and don’t let the chaos of the day distract you from being attentive to your slicing and dicing.
