Not sure if this would go here, Mod's?
Just sharing my story which happened the whole of 15 minutes ago.
basically, my brother and dad, being the numpties they are, never clean the grill pan out if they do bacon or fatty foods. So, me wanting a fish
finger sandwhich for lunch thought i'd use the grill.
5 minutes into cooking, went back to check on them and the pan was on fire. What don't you do when it's fire and oil?! use water. That's the only
bloody thing closest to me to even put it out.
So, threw water on it, it got bigger (the whole pan on fire now) but after a few seconds it went out
Never been so frickin scared in all my life, and for a split second I could see my mum hating me for setting the house on fire. Stupidly, I doubt
that'd happen, but it stinks downstairs now.
So, have pan fires happened to anyone else? Did you managed to put it out? Unfortunately, I didn't have a lid big enough to cover the pan, therefore
I would have starved it from it's oxygen to carry on burning, etc... If it has happened to you, may I ask, what went through your mind?
I realise it's not a big deal now, because I'm alive, well, and the house most certainly didn't burn down!!! However for a split second I thought I
was going to die. (I know, I know!)
