There was a man in my supermarket checkout queue recently, who had an arm very similar, but much worse, to the above.
I wanted to ask him if he was a chef, but he rushed off. I'm certain he was.
Chefs wear their arm burns with pride; just a hazard of the job.
Mine above are the result of a recent Pizza night; getting the blighters in and out of the oven is perilous.
Ouch, oven burns hurt.ReplyDelete
I suffer in silence.Delete
Hope you had the Acriflex handy.ReplyDelete
I didn't bother, they were only small.Delete
You need one of those flat wooden plates on a long stick!ReplyDelete
I've got one, but the handle isn't long enough.Delete
The oven burns are on the top of my arms; the iron catches my arms on the underside. Just clumsy I guess.ReplyDelete
Join the club!Delete
I'm hopeless as I can never be bothered to use oven gloves, just use a tea towel and am always burning myself ... As you say Cro, the sign of a top chef !!!!! XXXXReplyDelete
I have the same burns every time i use the oven.ReplyDelete
We all need arm protectors; or bigger ovens.Delete
Me too Yael. I have iron burns as well, I never learn!Delete
Greetings Maria x
I have never burned my arms but my fingers have taken the heat many time. Oh, how that hurts.ReplyDelete
Yes, not very pleasant.Delete
I find that Aga owners tend to get burns on their wrists from taking things in and out of the oven. However hard I try I still get them now and again.ReplyDelete
I think anyone who uses a low down oven is bound to get small burns occasionally. Chefs certainly do.Delete
It's always such a surprise to get a kitchen burn. I rarely get burned, so don't always react quickly enough to keep the damage minor.ReplyDelete
I'll have to investigate what Acriflex. Thanks, Rachel.
I made two Pizzas, that's why I have two burns. Acriflex is a burns cream.Delete
Better to have oven burns than fryer burns; those are the dickens... both to get and to heal.ReplyDelete
I don't have a fryer, but my daughter was telling me recently about her 'Air Fryer' which sounds good; I might buy one.Delete
Any burn is bad. Take care.ReplyDelete
I have cactus very fine stickers all over my arms and legs right now and I was very careful ! They hurt like the devil.
cheers, parsnip and thehamish
Strangely, these burns did hurt a bit when they happened, then I forgot about them completely; until I noticed the scars two days later.Delete
