It’s important to keep safety in mind when you are using your electric grill in Cincinnati this summer.

Anytime you are using an electrical device, such as your microwave, TV, computer or hair dryer, you need to think about safety. However, since your electric grill is outside and, therefore, exposed to the elements, there is an added measure of risk that you need to be aware of. That’s why, in our last blog, our electrician in Cincinnati went over a couple safety tips for using your electric grill this summer. Keep reading to learn more:

#3. Keep your grill away from anything flammable. 

Your electric grill needs to be placed at least 10 feet away from your home, your wooden deck or anything else that is flammable. After all, when it comes to fire safety, prevention is the name of the game.

#4. Make sure that your grill is off before you plug it in. 

Before you plug in your grill, it’s important to double-check that all of the knobs and buttons are set to off. If your grill is on when you plug it in, you run the risk of an electrical shock or even a fire.

#5. Check that the wiring is undamaged and unobstructed. 

The wires on your electrical grill should not have cracks, cuts or any other form of damage. If there is damage, do not turn the grill on until you have replaced the wires. You should also make sure that the wires are untangled and out of the way so that no one trips on them. Always check that the wires are undamaged and unobstructed before you start your electrical grill.
