This Is Ridiculo”us”


While we were cooking last week my sister filled me in on what’s been happening on the popular show This Is Us. I tried to get into it last year but found it hard to follow, so I’ll need to start from the beginning of the series at some point. Is this true what I hear? You’re throwing away your slow cookers because of a plot-line on a television drama show? I hope you all are just kidding. Just in case you’re not I wanted to share this article with you to bring you back to your senses and to loving this helpful kitchen appliance once again.

The 5 Safety Rules of Slow Cookers

All kidding aside, with respect to any appliance, all things needs to be used and attended to responsibly. I’ll admit I have had to use a fire extinguisher to put out a fire in my oven that grew out of control despite closing the door to suffocate it. My sister has also had stove top moments of truth where she needed to make a serious decision quickly. The house we grew up in recently burned to the ground because a fire created by a short in the dishwasher that was running while the owners weren’t home, that house was also in Pittsburgh, coincidence? I bet you won’t throw out your dishwasher, though. Stay safe and stay reasonable out there!
