Kidde Introduces Only UL-Listed Fire Extinquisher for Residential Cooking Equipment

To help protect families when a cooking fire starts, Kidde has introduced the only UL-listed fire extinguisher for use with residential cooking equipment.

Did you know that most home fires start in the kitchen?

Cooking is the leading cause of home fires and injuries, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Yet,only an estimated 25 percent of U.S. households have a kitchen fire extinguisher on hand to help contain or extinguish a small fire.
A study published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) found that 75 percent of range or stove fires started with food ignitions, of which nearly half began with cooking oil. Kidde’s new kitchen fire extinguisher is the only unit currently listed to the new UL 711A standard that tests the performance of the unit on vegetable and peanut oil.
Kidde Kitchen Fire ExtinquisherHow It Works
Kidde’s Kitchen Fire Extinguisher has a unique, specially designed nozzle that minimizes the chance of oil splashing by gently dispersing the dry chemical agent in an arc; whereas, a traditional fire extinguisher may cause the oil to splash with its straight stream. 
Its non-toxic agent is similar to baking soda, so it won’t damage the stove and makes clean up easy.
Plus, the lightweight cylinder allows for one-handed operation, and the easy-to-read pressure gauge tells the user that the extinguisher is charged and ready for use.
