Burns Night.



There was a man in my supermarket checkout queue recently, who had an arm very similar, but much worse, to the above.

I wanted to ask him if he was a chef, but he rushed off. I'm certain he was.

Chefs wear their arm burns with pride; just a hazard of the job.

Mine above are the result of a recent Pizza night; getting the blighters in and out of the oven is perilous.

  3. The oven burns are on the top of my arms; the iron catches my arms on the underside. Just clumsy I guess.

  4. I'm hopeless as I can never be bothered to use oven gloves, just use a tea towel and am always burning myself ... As you say Cro, the sign of a top chef !!!!! XXXX

  6. I have never burned my arms but my fingers have taken the heat many time. Oh, how that hurts.

  7. I find that Aga owners tend to get burns on their wrists from taking things in and out of the oven. However hard I try I still get them now and again.

    1. I think anyone who uses a low down oven is bound to get small burns occasionally. Chefs certainly do.

  8. It's always such a surprise to get a kitchen burn. I rarely get burned, so don't always react quickly enough to keep the damage minor.

    I'll have to investigate what Acriflex. Thanks, Rachel.

    Best wishes.

    1. I made two Pizzas, that's why I have two burns. Acriflex is a burns cream.

  9. Better to have oven burns than fryer burns; those are the dickens... both to get and to heal.

    1. I don't have a fryer, but my daughter was telling me recently about her 'Air Fryer' which sounds good; I might buy one.

    I have cactus very fine stickers all over my arms and legs right now and I was very careful ! They hurt like the devil.

    1. Strangely, these burns did hurt a bit when they happened, then I forgot about them completely; until I noticed the scars two days later.
