The kitchen is the social hub of the house and home to good food and even better memories. Americans take their kitchens seriously; millions of households remodel their kitchens every year to add the latest gadgets. Touchless faucets, recycling centers and LED lighting are the new vogue in appliances and kitchen decor.
The most beloved room in the house also happens to be the most dangerous. The top cause of residential fires in the United States is from cooking, about 42% of fires start in the kitchen! The ER is no stranger to accidents from the kitchen and sees its fair share every year. Tens of thousands of injuries from refrigerators and tableware and hundreds of thousands of knife injuries are reported yearly.
