In a kitchen, you're going to have most of the time, problems with grease fires and electrical fires, that's your main danger in the kitchen. So you're going to want to buy a fire extinguisher that is a class B and C fire extinguisher, a class B fire extinguisher means that that fire extinguisher will put out grease fires, liquid fires, anything of that kind of sorts. A class C fire extinguisher puts out electrical fires which is also a great danger in your kitchen as well. So you're going to want to get a multi use fire extinguisher that covers a class B and C. For any other places in your home such as a home fireplace, you're going to want to make sure that you have a class A fire extinguisher. A class A fire extinguisher puts out wood fires, it puts out paper fires, clothing fires, anything that can happen to you, however they also make class A, B and C fire extinguishers which are more appropriate for a location in the home like a fireplace. But in the kitchen you want to make sure you get the class B and C and they make special fire extinguishers that are kitchen fire extinguishers only. And that's how to buy a fire extinguisher.
