16. To reduce the risk of fire or fire in the
oven cavity
a. Do not overcook food. Carefully attend

oven to facilitate cooking. Paper can
char or burn, and some plastics can melt
if used when heating foods.
b. Do not deep fry in oven.
c Test dinnerware or cookward before

slowing cooking times. Remove wire twistties from paper or plastic bags before
placing bag in oven. Cooking in metal
containers can damage the oven. So can
containers with hidden metal (twist-ties, foil
lining, staples, metallic glaze or trim.)
d. If materials inside the oven should ignite,
