However, there is also scope of not having any of these accidents if you are careful enough.

Pick the correct utensils
Always make sure to pick the correct utensils in your kitchen resurfacing Melbourne for the particular dish that you are preparing and pay attention to that max line indicator that comes on the sides of many of the cooking pots and kettles today. Give space for the liquid within to create foam if it does and never fill it to the brim. Also remember to choose the right pot depending upon whether you will be microwaving, steaming, freezing or otherwise.

The heavier they are the lower they go
Always make sure to keep all of the heavy utensils that you have on the lower levels of the shelves so that they will have less chance of breaking the shelves and everything else on it if they should be too heavy.

Cook with no distractions

Wear anti-slip slippers
