Cold water immeadately until the burning stops or for around 20mins (for future refernce) will stop it being so bad.
Then anything to help the irritation and pain. Cold water can still help because it's soothing, but also burn creams from a pharmacy and normal painkillers. Try to avoid letting it rub on clothing or anything and don't shove any ol' ointments on cos it can irritate it. Generally just wait it out.

You gan get more info on burns on the NHS website or just by googling.

Creams are a bad idea. If it hurt like hell and was red it's probably just a superficial burn - it'll get better on its own without any special treatment.

Ask a pharmacist. I know there are some burn creams i'm not sure what they are and what burns they are appropriate for. Most other creams will just hurt more and be bad for it so i'm not going to risk telling you the wrong one.

If the pain is really bad you can take painkillers or try numbing it with ice packs (use something to insulate and something smooth like plastic film so it's not too cold and doesn't rub on the burn too much). Best option is to try to leave it alone and wait it out though. It should improve over the next few days if it's just a minor oven burn.

Pop by a pharmacy tonight or tomorrow though and see what they suggest.

Oh and minor burns won't usually scar, but they may leave a mark for a while.

Put cling film over the burn. Unlike plasters, it doesn't actually stick to your skin.

To be honest I would probably tend to put aloe vera on a burn myself cos I use it for everything, but I'm not sure it's the best thing to do. Give it a go if you want to, but I'd suggest you go check at the pharmacy first. I think sainburys pharmacys stay open late so you could call and ask about aloe vera or what else would help.
*Just don't put anything on if the skin is broken.
