    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
    When using a saucepan, it is advisable to have the handle facing inwards. This is because having the handle facing inwards prevents accidental knocking or bumping of the handle, which could result in the saucepan tipping over and causing spills or burns. By facing the handle inwards, it also reduces the risk of the handle getting heated by another hotplate or jet, ensuring safety while cooking.

  • 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

    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 to put the food in the fridge in the home economics area. This is because the food contains perishable ingredients like meat, dairy, or eggs, which need to be stored at a low temperature to prevent bacterial growth. Putting it in the fridge ensures that the food stays fresh and safe to consume when it is shared later.

    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. In contrast, dull knives require more pressure, increasing the chances of losing control and potentially causing more severe cuts. Additionally, sharp knives provide cleaner and more precise cuts, minimizing the likelihood of accidents. Therefore, it is important to keep knives sharp to ensure safer and more efficient use.

    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
    Water should not be used to put out a grease fire because it can cause the fire to spread. Baking soda is effective in extinguishing grease fires because it releases carbon dioxide when heated, smothering the flames. Salt can also be used as it helps to absorb the heat from the fire. Using a combination of baking soda and salt provides an even more effective method for extinguishing a grease fire. Therefore, the correct answer is baking soda and salt.

    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
    The correct answer is 20 seconds because washing your hands with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds is recommended by health experts to effectively remove dirt, germs, and bacteria. This duration ensures that enough time is given to thoroughly clean all areas of the hands, including between fingers, under nails, and the wrists. Washing hands for less than 20 seconds may not be sufficient to adequately eliminate harmful pathogens, while washing for longer durations may not provide any additional benefits.

    You can prevent falls in the kitchen by:

    • A.

      Keeping the floor clean and clear of clutter

    • B.

      Wiping up spills as soon as they happen

    • C.

      Not wearing floppy slippers or socks

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because keeping the floor clean and clear of clutter, wiping up spills as soon as they happen, and not wearing floppy slippers or socks are all effective ways to prevent falls in the kitchen. A clean and clutter-free floor reduces the risk of tripping, while promptly cleaning up spills prevents slippery surfaces. Additionally, wearing proper footwear, such as non-slip shoes, provides better traction and stability, reducing the chances of slipping and falling. By following all of these recommendations, one can significantly minimize the risk of falls in the kitchen.

    To avoid an accident on the stove, pot handles should be turned:

    • A.

      Hanging over the edge of the stove

    • B.

      Inwards toward middle of stove

    • C.

      Inwards over a stove element

    • D.

      Toward the front of the stove

    Correct Answer
    B. Inwards toward middle of stove
    Explanation
    Pot handles should be turned inwards toward the middle of the stove to avoid accidents. This is because when the handles are turned inwards, they are less likely to be accidentally bumped or grabbed, reducing the risk of the pot being knocked over and causing burns or spills. Turning the handles inwards also prevents them from being within easy reach of children, further promoting safety in the kitchen.

    Explanation
    Standing to the side of the oven and pulling the rack out with oven mitts is the correct answer because it minimizes the risk of getting burned. By standing to the side, one avoids the direct heat coming from the oven, reducing the chances of accidental contact with hot surfaces or steam. Using oven mitts provides protection for the hands while handling the hot rack, further preventing burns.

    The best method(s) to safely thaw frozen meat or poultry:

    • A.

      In the refrigerator

    • B.

      On the kitchen counter or sink

    • C.

      In the microwave

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. In the refrigerator
    Explanation
    The best method to safely thaw frozen meat or poultry is in the refrigerator. This method allows for a slow and controlled thawing process, minimizing the risk of bacterial growth. Thawing in the refrigerator also helps to maintain the quality and texture of the meat. Thawing on the kitchen counter or sink can lead to uneven thawing and increase the risk of bacterial contamination. Thawing in the microwave is a quicker method, but it may partially cook the outer layers of the meat and result in uneven thawing. Therefore, the refrigerator is the safest option for thawing frozen meat or poultry.

    When food is not stored properly it loses:

    • A.

      Moisture and flavour

    • B.

      Fibre and sodium

    • C.

      Glycimides

      Tenderness

    Correct Answer
    A. Moisture and flavour
    Explanation
    When food is not stored properly, it can lead to the loss of moisture and flavor. Improper storage conditions, such as exposure to air or incorrect temperature, can cause food to become dry and lose its natural moisture content. This can result in a loss of juiciness and tenderness, ultimately affecting the overall flavor of the food. Proper storage methods, such as using airtight containers or refrigeration, help to retain moisture and preserve the flavor of the food.

    It is okay to set a hot glass of liquid on a cold surface.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is not okay to set a hot glass of liquid on a cold surface because the sudden change in temperature can cause the glass to crack or shatter. When the hot glass comes into contact with the cold surface, the temperature difference creates stress on the glass, leading to potential breakage. It is recommended to use a coaster or a heat-resistant pad to protect the surface and prevent any damage to the glass.
