Kidde FX10K Kitchen Fire Extinguisher

There was a fire at an apartment across the street last night. It was terrifying to see from a distance and we can't imagine how much worse it must be when it's happening to your home.

As we witnessed the FDNY bravely battling the flames, we remembered seeing this fire extinguisher by Kidde at Home Depot several weeks ago.

Its white canister popped out at us from the shelves and we thought it was very nice looking as fire extinguishers go. We have a red one but plan to go for this model the next time we need to replace. It sells for about $17.

We can't stress enough the importance of being prepared with one of these when it comes to keeping a check on possible kitchen fires.
