These comments got me to look for fire extinguisher recommendations, and I found several similar reviews to this one. Significant portions and the link to it are included below:
" For your primary fire extinguishers (remember, one on each floor), we recommend the First Alert PRO5."
“Guyette Fire Protection owner Wayne Guyette told us that “two and a half pounds of chemical is two and a half pounds of chemical,” and assistant fire marshal Joseph Keenan said that “the effectiveness of the extinguisher is in how it is used, not the material it is made of.””
[writing about Kidde, a major manufacturer of disposable extinguishers] “… the recall points to the potential failures of an extinguisher with plastic in the valve assembly. For that reason, all of our picks have all-metal valves.”
“A final upside of the PRO5 is that it is easily available on the shelves of Lowe’s, Walmart, Target, and Ace Hardware.”
“To address this problem [corrosive to metals], some manufacturers offer noncorrosive alternatives specifically for the kitchen … but those are rated for only B and C flames (flammable liquids and electrical fires) and not A flames (wood, cloth, and paper).”
“Based on our research, we are not recommending extinguishers by one prominent brand you’ve probably seen at home centers: Kidde, which has a history of defective products and recalls.”
