My worst experience was the first time introduced to a Mandolin and working with the julienne blade.

As luck would have it, i was distracted, and a split second later, 7 cuts in my left thumb.

High school, cooking stupid potato cake thingies. Old stove, big pan, lots of oil, stove in corner, group of teenage girls in the way, chatting. Kyles trying to keep an eye on the oil, oops, too late, flames hitting ceiling. Pleasantly plump cooking teacher flying across the room with a box of salt and a lid, rescuing us all from certain death.

The only consolation is later in the day, another kid in another class managed to tip a pile of sodium into some water, causing a massive explosion and the whole school had to close down for the day, so no one remembered my aborted attempt to burn down the school!

The worst huh?. Well that was about 25 years ago when I put a beef tongue on to boil and sat down and fell asleep. Needless to say that when I woke-up the water in the pot was long gone, the tongue was dry as a bone and the house was filled with smoke.

My mom was moving something on the stove and a lid flipped boiling hot oil all over her chest. She really should have gone to the hospital, but with no insurance and no money (and I think a fear of doctors), she didn't. She was burning so bad that she couldn't sleep. My dad didn't know what to do, so he grabbed the closest thing handy, the Chloroseptic spray (we just call it "the green stuff") and sprayed it all over the burn. It stopped the burning so that she was able to sleep, and we have used it on minor burns ever since.

Spatulator, reading all of your replies on this thread makes me think that you are a masochist.

lol, quite the opposite. I'm a baby when it comes to pain. The worst are friction burns like when you fall of a bike.

I've got so many stories I could write a book, since I'm always the one who liked to cook.

I love grilling ribs - what I call brontosauras ribs, the big beefy ones, which I marinate kal-bi style and cook on the rare side. Well, one friend who isn't a big meat eater anyway, bit in and hit an odd vein which for some reason hadn't been cooked, and it spurted blood everywhere. You'd have thought she hit an artery of a living person. Blood on her, her husband, the table. It is a true sign of friendship (or perhaps that my cooking is that good!) that she stopped, wiped up herself and dabbed everyone who got sprinkled, and just took another bite and kept on eating.
