The kitchen can be a dangerous place that inflicts injuries, leaving us with scars that are unsightly. What are some of the worst scar or stories of injuries you guys have gotten while working in the kitchen? Most of my scars are burns. In my defense, I am very pale, so I get burns very easily. I can even get a burn from being too close to extreme heat (while no direct contact is even emitted). My face and arms turn bright red while being near the hot line. This is my forearm with the burns I have gotten in a 1-2years timeframe. I have found that some burn scars fade away with time, as skin cells regenerate. But I worry that some of the big ones will remain.
