The Kidde FX10K Fire Extinguisher is designed for the kitchen. View larger.
Take a 3D tour to learn the types of fire extinguishers you need to protect your home.
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends at least one primary protection fire extinguisher for each level of the home. A primary protection fire extinguisher should have a fairly large capacity and must be UL Rated 2-A:10-B:C or higher. In addition to your primary protection, you should also have supplementary protection fire extinguishers that are UL rated for specific hazards, such as common kitchen cooking fires. Supplementary fire extinguishers are recommended for placement in specific areas, such as the kitchen.
This supplementary protection fire extinguisher meets the recommendations and needs of:
- The National Fire Protection Association: the NFPA 10 Standard for Fire Extinguishers
- Underwriters Laboratories (UL): the independent testing lab for fire safety products
- Professionals: for more than 90 years, industry leaders, the military, airlines, and firefighters have relied on Kidde fire extinguishers
In an emergency situation, you need a proven technology: a UL-rated fire extinguisher with a handle, a visible pressure gauge, and enough size and capacity to put out a common fire. These features are what make a fire extinguisher the tool of choice for true fire suppression. Many aerosol can fire products may not be as reliable for fire protection, because they have a short shelf life (only three years in many cases), they do not provide a gauge to verify readiness, and they aren't UL rated. If you are able to react to a small fire when it starts, chances are good you can stop the fire with the right type of fire extinguisher.
Safe Extinguishing Agent with Easy Cleanup
This fire extinguisher is UL rated 10-B:C, and it uses a non-toxic fire suppressing agent specified for kitchen fires. Many kitchen fire products use a mix of chemicals that are not food safe. Cleaning up the sticky residue left after even a small grease fire can be quite a chore. This Kidde fire extinguisher uses a non-toxic sodium bicarbonate powder that's easy to clean up and is electrically nonconductive, an important feature for kitchen fires.
Built to Last and Easy to Use
This Kidde Fire Extinguisher is durable and easy to use. The fire extinguisher is warranted for 10 years, and its metal pressure gauge helps ensure that the fire extinguisher is charged and ready for use. This extinguisher is durable and corrosion resistant, featuring a rust- and impact-resistantnylon handle and a light-but-durable aluminum cylinder. The sure-grip handle and operating lever make it less likely for the extinguisher to slip from wet or oily hands and easier to operate for people with arthritis or weakness of the fingers. A large bilingual nameplate on the extinguisher provides easy-to-read instructions for use during a fire.
You can place a kitchen fire extinguisher near your countertop, or in a drawer or cabinet, but make sure it is pressurized and close at hand for emergency use.
