£8.99 in Costco

Not everyone is a member of Costco.Although you could argue not everyone's a prime member either.Anyway I put it up there to make people aware.

Actually pretty dangerous. You wouldn't want to use this for a cooking fire due to either electrical appliances being used or oil. Also you might have 2 but unless you are going to train your family to use them its safer to just get out when you have a fire.

This reads so like 'Kindle Fire £14.99'

I read it as 'Kiddie fire extinguisher' so thought it was a kids one

Why can't you use dry powder on things that use electricity?

Perfect for my dryer

What did you have to use them on? Did it work well?

Actually, ignore me, I just realised this is identical to the ones I got from Aldi for £4.99 (or £9.99 for the 2kg ones). This was several years ago, mind, so no need for cheeky time machine comments please. This is a good deal for today.

Those of us of a certain age were brought up knowing how to put out a chip pan fire with a damp drying up cloth thanks to the government safety advert....

because dry powder conducts electricity & you fry the cat?

Will go perfectly with a Samsung note 7 X)

That's a really good link!

Of relevance to this post is:

Best For
Can be used on fires involving organic solids, liquids such as grease, fats, oil, paint, petrol, etc but not on chip or fat pan fires. Can also be used on gas fires.
Danger
Safe on live electrical equipment, although does not penetrate the spaces in equipment easily and the fire may re-ignite. This type of extinguisher does not cool the fire very well and care should be taken that the fire does not flare up again.
Smouldering material in deep seated fires such as upholstery or bedding can cause the fire to start up again. Do not use on domestic chip or fat pan fires.
There is danger of inhalation if powder extinguishers are used within buildings. Due to this, and the potential for powder to impair vision, powder extinguishers are no longer recommended for use within enclosed spaces.

I had a fire officer inspect my holiday let property and he advised I remove the powder fire extinguishers like this as if they were let off it could take a week to clean up afterwards.

I had a look around and found 'water mist' extinguishers which work on almost all fires without making a mess. I haven't replaced mine yet so am taking a bit of a risk that guests don't set them off unnecessarily but this is the sort of thing I would like

There's some impressive YouTube videos on the effectiveness of them. Dear though
