The appliance valve should always be closed when not in use. An LPG cylinder is not used after a period, which is why it is important to turn off the main valve for safety reasons.
When you are not using a spark igniter, the lighter or matchstick must be lit before turning on the valve. As it avoids accumulation of LPG in the pipe that could result in flash flame.
Keeping the cooking area well-ventilated, so one can dispose of the products of combustion and get a sufficient supply of air for proper combustion. Some kitchens are equipped with exhaust, which must be turned on before cooking.
