14 Little Things We Sometimes Do In The Kitchen That Can Be Really Harmful

Playing it safe with food only takes a few seconds and it's always worth it.

1. We've maybe not paid proper attention to the stove because our favourite song came on the radio.

2. We've washed our chicken.

3. We've maybe left something to defrost out in the sink or on a windowsill...

4. ...then not cooked it straight away.

5. Or maybe not reheated something properly...

6. ...like not reheated it until it was boiling.

7. We've possibly reheated something more than once.

8. We've all done the "just going to try a little test" thing and burnt our tongue ruining our taste buds before dinner.

9. We've maybe thought food in the fridge that smelt OK or didn't look funny was going to be OK.

10. We've sometimes used the same chopping board for everything and forgot to wash it...

11. ...or the same knives without properly washing them.

12. We've rinsed our hands thinking we've washed them properly.

13. We may have given the bench a meh wipe-down.

14. We've thought we were pro chefs and started chopping a little too quickly and cut ourselves.
