This wiki has been edited 3 times since it was first published in November of 2018. While no accidental fire is pleasant to deal with, those fueled by grease and cooking oils are particularly difficult to put out, which is why you need one of these Class K extinguishers. They dispense an alkaline mixture that combines with fats to create a thick, soapy foam, absorbing heat and containing steam and vapors to smother flames and prevent them from reigniting. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best class k fire extinguisher on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 05, 2018:

Selected the Amerex Wet Chemical as the best choice for restaurants because it's tested for use on deep fryers and electrical appliances and is Class 2A rated to meet fire code requirements. The Buckeye Hand Held and Kidde 6 Liter are also suitable for commercial use. In addition to these, we decided to include the Home First Fireman and the Mini Firefighter as options for individuals to keep at home or in a car or RV.

She spent two years as a writer and editor for a large DIY/tutorial startup, where she wrote extensively about technology, security, lifestyle, and home improvement. A self-professed skincare nerd, she’s well-versed in numerous ingredients and methods, including both Western and Asian products. She is an avid home cook who has whiled away thousands of hours cooking and obsessively researching all things related to food and food science. Her time in the kitchen has also had the curious side effect of making her an expert at fending off attempted food thievery by her lazy boxer dog.
