    5 most dangerous kitchen appliances

    When considering accidents in the kitchen, we often think of cuts, burns, slips, trips and falls. Yet, there are some dangerous kitchen appliances which can cause kitchen accidents of varying severity.

    An awareness of these dangerous kitchen appliances and the hazards in your home can minimise the chance of sustaining preventable injuries and illnesses.

    Dangerous kitchen appliances

    Generally speaking, we are accustomed to using the equipment in our kitchen. As such, we may not consider these dangerous kitchen appliances as hazards.

    Five dangerous kitchen appliances include, but are not limited to:

    1. Toaster: causing electrical injuries and burns
    2. Gas oven: potentially causing gas leak issues 
    3. Blender: leading to lacerations from incidents with sharp blades
    4. Electric carving knife: slips, and loss of control, causing cuts
    5. Portable grills: burns and food spills leading to slips and falls

    While these are five of the more common dangerous kitchen appliances, all equipment should be treated with care and caution to prevent accidents.

    It is also important to remember that, no matter how careful you are, kitchen accidents can occur due to human error and malfunctioning, faulty appliances.

    Claiming compensation for kitchen accidents

    If you have been involved in a kitchen accident through no fault of your own, and you believe a third party is liable, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for the harm and distress you have endured.

    No matter whether you suffered severe lacerations due to a faulty electric knife, or a simple slip on grease due to a poorly designed portable grill, Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with your case.

    We offer all victims of personal injury a free initial consultation. During this initial consultation, we will discuss the basis of your case. This will help us determine whether you have a claim that is likely to be successful if pursued, and where liability will probably lie.

    Should we mutually decide to move forward with your claim, you can recuperate at home, with the peace of mind that our specialist solicitors operate on a 100 per cent no-win, no-fee* basis.
