How can I safely use the stove and oven if I memory problems?

There are two things you can do to work safely in the kitchen, with the stove and oven, if you have memory problems. First, use a portable timer when cooking. If you must leave the kitchen while cooking, take a portable timer with you. The ding will remind you that you have something on the stove or in the oven. Second, use a timer or an alarm clock that you have to turn off, as opposed to one that rings only once, to remind yourself to turn on the oven to start dinner.
