Your Safety Knowledge In The Kitchen - Quiz

A quick quiz to test you on your safety knowledge in the kitchen


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What things should you do before you start cooking?

    • A.

      Wash your hands

    • B.

      Put on an apron

    • C.

      Tie back long hair

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Before starting cooking, it is important to ensure proper hygiene and safety. Washing hands is crucial to eliminate any potential bacteria or contaminants. Wearing an apron helps protect clothing from spills and stains. Tying back long hair prevents it from falling into the food and causing a hazard. Therefore, all of the above options should be done before starting cooking to maintain cleanliness and safety.

  • 2. 

    If you spill something on the floor, what should you do?

    • A.

      Leave it, someone else will clean it

    • B.

      Tell the teacher and get her/him to clean it

    • C.

      Wipe it up immediately

    • D.

      Pretend it didnt happen

    Correct Answer
    C. Wipe it up immediately
    Explanation
    When you spill something on the floor, the best course of action is to wipe it up immediately. This helps prevent accidents such as slipping and ensures the safety of others. Leaving it for someone else to clean is not responsible behavior, and pretending it didn't happen is dishonest. It is important to take ownership of our actions and clean up after ourselves to maintain a clean and safe environment.

    What should you use to take something out of a hot oven?

    • A.

      Tea towel

    • B.

      Paper towel

    • C.

      Oven mitts

    • D.

      Your hands

    Correct Answer
    C. Oven mitts
    Explanation
    Oven mitts should be used to take something out of a hot oven. Oven mitts are designed to provide heat protection and insulation for the hands and arms, making them suitable for handling hot items. Using oven mitts ensures that you can safely handle hot dishes or trays without burning yourself. Tea towels, paper towels, and bare hands do not provide the same level of heat resistance and can result in burns or injuries.

  • 4. 

    If you are using a saucepan, where should the handle be facing?

    • A.

      Out

    • B.

      Over the edge of stove

    • C.

      Inwards

    • D.

      Over an other hotplate/jet

    Correct Answer
    C. Inwards
    Explanation
    The handle of a saucepan should be facing inwards when using it. This is to prevent accidental spills or burns caused by knocking into the handle or having it in the way while cooking. By facing the handle inwards, it ensures that it is out of the reach of other burners or hotplates, reducing the risk of it getting in contact with heat sources and potentially causing injury.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Where or on what do you put something that you have just taken out of the oven?

    • A.

      On the bench top

    • B.

      On a wooden board

    • C.

      On the stove top (if its not turned on)

    • D.

      Both b & c

    Correct Answer
    D. Both b & c
    Explanation
    The correct answer is both b & c. After taking something out of the oven, you can put it on a wooden board or on the stove top (if it's not turned on). Placing it on a wooden board provides a stable and heat-resistant surface for cooling, while the stove top can also serve as a temporary resting place as long as it is not turned on.

  • 6. 

    If you are cooking something with meat, dairy (milk or cream) or eggs in the morning and you want to take it home and share, where should you put it?

    • A.

      In the fridge in the home economics area

    • B.

      In your locker

    • C.

      In the home economics room on the bench

    • D.

      In your friends locker

    Correct Answer
    A. In the fridge in the home economics area
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "in the fridge in the home economics area". If you are cooking something with meat, dairy, or eggs in the morning and want to take it home and share, it is important to store it in a refrigerated area to keep it fresh and prevent bacterial growth. The home economics area is likely equipped with a fridge specifically for storing food items, making it the most suitable option. Placing it in your locker or your friend's locker may not provide the necessary temperature control, and leaving it on the bench in the home economics room may expose it to potential contamination.

    Sharp knifes are more safe than dull ones.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Sharp knives are indeed safer than dull ones. When a knife is sharp, it requires less force to cut through objects, reducing the risk of slipping and causing accidental injuries. A dull knife, on the other hand, requires more force, increasing the chances of losing control and causing accidents. Additionally, sharp knives provide cleaner cuts, minimizing tissue damage and promoting faster healing. It is important to keep knives sharp through regular maintenance and proper handling to ensure safe and efficient use in the kitchen or any other setting.

    What should you put on a grease fire

    • A.

      Water

    • B.

      Baking soda

    • C.

      Salt

    • D.

      Baking soda and salt

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Baking soda and salt
    Explanation
    Baking soda and salt should be put on a grease fire because they are both effective in extinguishing the fire. Baking soda works by releasing carbon dioxide, which helps to smother the flames and cut off the oxygen supply. Salt, on the other hand, can help to absorb the heat and prevent the fire from spreading further. Using a combination of baking soda and salt provides a more effective and efficient way to put out the grease fire compared to using water, which can actually make the fire worse by spreading the burning grease.

    You should wash your hands with warm, soapy water for atleast...

    • A.

      5 seconds

    • B.

      20 seconds

    • C.

      30 seconds

    • D.

      1 minute

    Correct Answer
    B. 20 seconds
    Explanation
    Washing hands with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds is recommended because it allows enough time for the soap to effectively remove dirt, germs, and viruses from the hands. This duration ensures that all parts of the hands are thoroughly cleaned, including the fingertips, thumbs, and between the fingers. It is also the recommended time by health organizations, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), to effectively reduce the risk of spreading infections and diseases.
