If you're not doing this already, one of the things that people overlook in encouraging burns to heal is hydrating well. It turns out your body's less worried about losing moisture through damaged skin if you clearly have enough to spare.

When I worked at a smoothie shop ran by immigrants from Jordan, they introduced wraps. It was 2000ish, prime time for wraps.

They got an industrial grade mike and put it on top of a shelf. We had a tray for zapping turkey bacon into a crisp in twenty seconds. The tray had channels for the grease to run into and a little grease reservoir.

Did I mention the microwave was on top a shelf?

One time when the store was full, I was frantically making food. "DING!" Time to get the bacon out of the microwave. I reached up and grabbed the tray. I put my thumb in the bubbling reservoir of bacon grease. I promptly yelled, "gently caress ME!" and pulled my hand back. I caught the tray, flung it backwards over my head, and sprayed myself with scalding grease. I quickly ran over to the mustard tub in our cold line and shoved my hand in it, quietly swearing. It's an old kitchen thing - mustard on a burn.

It was a ton of fun explaining to the next five customers in line why I screamed a swear and shoved my hand into a quart of mustard.

When I worked at Waffle House, one of the things emphasized in the training videos is that if you start to drop a pot of something to not try to catch it. A guy I worked with once started to drop a pot of grits and tried to catch it. Instead of catching it, he shoved his arm into the pot of grits. Instinctively he drew back that arm in pain, but because he was going through a swinging door at the time, his attempts to fling the pot away from himself got deflected by the door, sending the pot into the ceiling above him. Both arms, head and shoulders scalded pretty good. Longterm he was fine but it wasn't pretty to look at at the time and we were cleaning grits out of strange places for days.

My brother has been in working in kitchens for about a decade.
A few years in he had a newbie coworker drop an aerosol can of some cleaner into a hot deep fryer.
The guy decided to pull it out using tongs and before anyone could process what happened or stop him, he got it out of the oil and then it exploded.
Dude got taken out on a stretcher by EMS and never came back.

At least it wasn't a bunch of knives? I guess? Jesus Christ, death by grits.

At the "nice" restaurant I managed, we had these little ramekins for sauce made of some sort of completely indestructible plastic. I swear to God, you could run one over with a car and it wouldn't blink.

But this had an unintended consequence - If you dropped one full of sauce, it would promptly launch the sauce ludicrous distances. We had one room with reclaimed wood plank things running across the ceiling. A few times a week, we would have to climb up there to clean ranch out of the ceiling.

The worst was - dropped ramekin full of sauce in a room with a fan. I was never there when that happened, but we ended up paying a lot of dry-cleaning bills.

Holy gently caress. That's one I've never even through about before.

I can tell you this - if a deep fat fryer catches on fire, you put it out with heavy cream.

I can tell you another thing - if a deep fat fryer catches fire and you pull it out of the kitchen onto the loading dock, it will get stolen in the middle of broad daylight in the rich white people part of town. The funnier thing? It would 100% catch back on fire when plugged up. It was gas powered. We were all watching the news waiting to see "rear end in a top hat HOUSE EXPLODES!" headline.

That's loving terrifying I'm not even sure what the best method to deal with that would be (beyond "don't use an aerosol can above a deep fryer") - if you don't try to yank it, it will just explode and send oil everywhere. Clearly yanking it wasn't the right move, I guess try to cover the fryer with a sheet pan or something? If you can think fast enough to do that before it explodes?

Man the worst we had to worry about at the butcher shop was the patty maker that craved human flesh and had a reputation for grabbing fingertips. And the bone pit at the rendering plant, but once we had been in business a couple of months that ceased to be an issue. Thank Christ we never had anything cooking or hot for people to be scalded or scorched by.

If I had time to blink, I'd go sheet pan while yelling at everyone to run the gently caress off the line. I've got no idea if we are talking ten seconds or one until explosion.

I was a line cook and barback/dishwasher at a bar. One night when I was doing dishes a pint glass fell over into the sink and I tried too slowly to catch it, leading to shards bouncing back up into my hand. One of the line cooks claimed he would cover for me while I was driven to the hospital. I got stitches in 3 fingers then came back and was asked to finish my shift, which I did because I was young and dumb.

The idiot line cook had done zero dishes in the hours I was gone because he didn't know about/bother to find the kill lever on the machine and thought it was broken. Fucker. So I had a huge rut to dig myself out of.

I have never deep fried in my own home. I had a room mate with a countertop fryer once. It terrified me.

gently caress that Canadian kitchen video, too. That is literally one of the most jarring things I've ever seen, partially because you aren't thinking, "I'm about to see a beautiful woman's face peel off while she screams."

You should not check out the talks people give about Hydroflouric acid, FYI if it ever comes up.

It's basically a time bomb if it gets on you without you noticing (entirely possible and has happened) then it attacks your bones after passing through your flesh. The treatment is basically flay the affected area, and inject calcuim directly into exposed bones a few times, then put flesh back and hope the nerve damage doesn't kill them anyway
