4 Kitchen Safety Tips When Using LPG

As everyone continues to stay at home, people have been spending a lot of their time in the kitchen lately – from preparing daily meals and trying out new recipes, to cooking with the kids and of course, enjoying homecooked meals with the entire family. With this, kitchen safety is more important than ever, and it starts with securing all the tools and equipment, including making sure your LPG cylinders are safe and professionally installed.

Solane, a leading LPG provider in the country, offers these safety tips on the use of LPG to make cooking at home a safe and enjoyable experience.

Place the LPG cylinder in a well-ventilated area. When choosing a spot for your LPG cylinder, make sure that there is an opening, such as a window or a door, to ensure adequate ventilation. Make sure that LPG cylinders are also far away from other heat sources, electric outlets, and hazard-prone areas in the house to avoid ignition. Lastly, make sure that your LPG cylinder is in a secure and upright position.

Inspect the LPG cylinder. Upon delivery, carefully inspect your LPG tank to make sure that it is in good physical condition. First, check the cylinder for dents, cracks, corrosions, or other damages. Then, make sure that the safety cap and security seal are in place. If there seems to be a problem with any of the components, turn off the gas supply and have it replaced or repaired immediately. To make it easier, Solane offers customers a free 7-Point Safety Check. Through this extra precautionary step, Solane's well-trained riders help ensure that the tanks are safe and secure.

Use correct equipment and accessories. With LPG cylinders, ensure that you are using the correct hose by checking for the mark, "LPG Hose." Branded regulators,  such as RECA and TPA, are recommended because these are manufactured according to specific standards. When attaching the regulator, ensure that it is securely connected to the cylinder valve. The regulator knob should also be open to allow the outflow of gas from the holes. It’s also important to regularly check the condition of these two and replace them as needed. The hose should be replaced every 2 years while the regulator should be replaced every 5 years upon the date of manufacture.

Practice caution. Whether you are installing, using, or disconnecting your LPG cylinders, caution is a must. To avoid mishaps and injuries, you should also never attempt to fix, refill, or replace your cylinders without the help of authorized personnel. Don’t forget to turn off the cylinder valve or regulator and gas appliance when not in use. Follow the manufacturer's instructions regarding the use and maintenance of your gas appliance. In case of an emergency, try to eliminate all sources of sources of ignition and turn off the gas supply of the cylinder. If the leak is on the cylinder, cover the leaking portion with a wet rag.

Make sure your LPG is authentic. To help ensure the safety of your family, buy your LPG cylinders from authorized dealers only. In addition, when buying gas tanks, be sure to check for quality markings on the cylinders, such as the registered brand name and trademark of the manufacturer, standard used and test dates, the serial or code number, expiry date, tare weight and LPG content, and the “Made in the Philippines” mark.

5 Kitchen Tips for Homeschooling Moms

 “Going back to school” is different this year as many schools shift to distance learning due to the pandemic. In addition to other responsibilities, most parents now need to take on their kids’ schooling and ensure that they really understand their online lessons.

If you’re already working from home, you may be thinking that you just don’t have enough time for your job, household chores, and helping your kids with school. Before you get overwhelmed, Solane, the leading supplier of LPG in the country, is here to offer some kitchen tips to make your new arrangement at home easier.

Set a schedule. Preparing a meal, on top of everything else that needs to get done, can be time consuming. Make sure you have a daily schedule that includes the time you will allot for cooking, uninterrupted work, your kids' school hours, as well as your break time and meal times. Once you have your schedule, do your best to stick to it so you can manage your time better.

Plan meals in advance. Save yourself from unnecessary stress by planning the meals you will cook for the family ahead of time. By doing this, you get to save some time by getting all the ingredients you need at the grocery in one trip during quarantine. Just make sure to plan a variety of dishes that are easy to prepare, flavorful, and nutritious.

Get the kids involved. If your kids aren’t too busy, you can ask them to help with some simple tasks in the kitchen like rinsing the vegetables or mixing ingredients. This can also be an opportunity to teach them about kitchen safety when it comes to things like peeling and chopping vegetables to avoid accidents. A few minutes before your meal, ask your kids to help by setting up the table. After eating, they can also help clear the table and put the dirty dishes in the sink. Not only will this help you, but this will also teach your kids responsibility and discipline.

Do the chores immediately. Try to get the chores done right away. Small stressors, like unfinished kitchen chores, only add up and affect your overall well-being. If tasks are left undone, you may feel more stressed, especially while working or tutoring your kids.  Start small. After eating, you can wash your kitchen tools and tableware, wipe the counters, and throw out the trash immediately. If you don’t feel up to it, don’t think of it as, “I need to clean the kitchen.” Instead, look at it this way: Do you want a clean kitchen? Then, get cleaning.

Invest in the right kitchen equipment. Invest in kitchen tools that can help you save time and cook faster, such as convection ovens, food processors, and instant pots. Also consider kitchen appliances that don’t need too much attention while cooking, like slow cookers. Just put your ingredients in them and they will take care of the cooking process. This will give you more time to focus on your work and kids’ lessons. In addition, opt for an LPG brand that is made for fast and safe cooking, like Solane. With the help of Solane, you can easily prepare your meals without the hassle or any worries.

Cooking A Corn Flavored Maja Blanca!

It's recipe time once again! I know you really missed my special recipes. So for this moment, I will share with you my newly learned recipe!

Last Sunday, I cooked two recipes. The first one is the so-called maja blanca and the other one is the Graham Dessert! I will share with you first the maja blanca.

At first, I didn't know how to cook this kind of 'kakanin'! I didn't even have an idea how it is made. Until one day, my officemate brought a maja blanca as our dessert for lunch.

Since I love to eat maja even before when my mom always bought it for us, I wonder how it was made. At first, I thought that it was just a harden 'gulaman' or gelatin. But it's not!

Out of curiosity, I asked my officemate how she was able to make it. Then she willingly told me!

Mixing All The Ingredients in a Bowl

Boiling The Mixed Ingredients in a Stove

According to her, maja blanca is a mixture of corn starch, 'gata ng niyog', corn (the one in the can), and evaporated milk. Yup, actually this is all the ingredients!

Put all these ingredients in a bowl and mix. Taste it and ensure its sweetness. You may add sugar on your mixture. But when you use a condense milk instead of the evaporated one, I'm sure no need to add sugar since it is automatically sweet! But in my case, I put teaspoons of sugar since I use an evaporated milk!

When the mixture is ready and already taste good, it is now time to heat and boil it in the stove. So, I boiled it in our stove and wait for a couple of minutes.

Cooking is Over When The Mixture Becomes Sticky!

Putting The Cooked Maja Blanca in Their Respective Trays

Afterward Let Them Cool and Get Harden

I always stir my mixture in our casserole to ensure that it didn't stick and harden while boiling. When the mixture is getting hotter and hotter, it started to coagulates!

How did we know that cooking and boiling of the mixture is enough?! Well, that was the same question I asked in my officemate. According to her, it is already cooked when the mixture becomes sticky! When it started to stick in your casserole or in your sandok, then cooking is over!

So, I followed her advice! I keep an eye in my recipe in the stove to prevent it from coagulation. But when it was already sticky, I removed it from the stove! Wow, this is it! My very own maja blanca recipe! Oh yeah!

After I removed the cooked mixture in the stove, I poured it in respective trays! Then I let them cooled and harden before placing the trays in the refrigerator!

That's it! It's simple right?! My mom was so happy that I can now cooked a special corn flavored maja blanca! Actually you can topped the finished product with peanuts or niyog. You can even put food colorings on it. That's why you often see a yellow maja blanca! But in my case, I retained it to be white!

Well, what can you say about my new discovered recipe?! Want to try some of it?! Pwede na bang mag-asawa...?! Sorry, I wasn't able to provide photogenic pictures of my recipe because it's too hard to take pictures while cooking! Haha! See you on my next recipe! C",)
