LOL...not something to laugh at, but because I am canning at least 5 days out of 7, I have a list a mile long.
My most recent was just 3 days ago. My boiling water bath was going and my timer went off, time to turn the heat off, take the lid off, and set the timer for the 5 minutes waiting time before you can remove the jars.
Stupid me, I reach with my bare right arm for the timer on the stove, right where the steam was escaping from the lid on the BWB. Result: A 4 inch, at least a 2nd degree burn, right where your arm bends.
From now on, I'm going to use a separate timer, rather than the one on the stove. With all the canning I do, I'm surprised this hasn't actually happened to me before
