December is a busy month in the kitchen with holiday baking and cooking. Cooking is the leading cause of home fires and injuries! However, data from the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) shows that only approximately 25 percent of U.S. households have a fire extinguisher on hand to help contain or extinguish a small fire. Kidde has created a fire extinguisher that is the first of its kind and able to protect against stove top fires. The Kidde Kitchen Fire Extinguisher is the only unit listed to meet the recently added UL711A standard which is a performance test on its use against vegetable and peanut oil. Kidde’s Kitchen Fire Extinguisher was recently listed in This Old House’s list of the top 100 best new home products of the year!
I was thrilled to be able to work with Kidde to review their fire extinguishers. Being prepared and having a safe home is very important to me especially with three little boys at home that are always into mischief. Kidde’s Kitchen Fire Extinguisher is compact so it fits really well in my lower cabinets and it is right there in easy reach from the stove. We do have push-button child locks on that cabinet so that will keep my younger boys from messing with the fire extinguisher. We also received a Full Home extinguisher that we have stored in our garage playroom. Thankfully, I didn’t have a fire and actually need to use either of these extinguishers but I feel really glad to have something on hand for when it may become crucial!
