The 4th line sounds like my ex 😳
The problem with the fire brigade is they tend to let your property burn to the ground and then dampen the wreckage down.

They do some heroic work at times and are generally great, but I like to have the option of at least having a go if the fire is caught early or if your trapped you might be able to shield yourself from the flame just long enough to make your escape.

Also handy in the car if god forbid you withess a crash and some poor sod is trapped in a smouldering wreck.

That advice has been provided by their lawyers, of course you have a go first to save your house?
Appreciate that this is a completely different price bracket, but if you want an extinguisher that will put out a fire effectively and you have the funds then invest in a water mist fire extinguisher, something like this Water Mist Fire Extinguisher

To see how effective water mist fire extinguishers are in comparison to other more usual types have a look at this


As others have mentioned, the best advice if there is a fire in your home, is to get out, stay out, and get the fire brigade out, but if your exit is compromised, blocked by fire then a water mist extinguisher is going to be far more effective at extinguishing a fire than any other type.

Well, I’d probably do the same, but our fire brigade are superb, so I can’t knock them.

I bought one last week after the grill on the oven caught fire. Managed to put it out without one but the scare made me want one, got a fire blanket too.

I have holiday cottages which, by law, must be fitted with fire extinguishers.
Just need to check if there are any specific requirements before buying the one in this deal.
Thanks OP.

Those guidelines are for general public, not businesses, as a business would have to meet safety standards and have regular checks, whereas regular citizens buy extinguishers and let them get out of date.
Been watching this for a long time and nearly jumped in. But in tradition I used FakeSpot on the reviews. It’s listed as an F (when A is best)
Edited by: "andrewcelliott" 26th Sep
Perfect for those that went with that Fiat Tipo deal the other day
If there is the slightest doubt about an extinguisher being genuine I would not go near it. Dry powder extinguishers use a fluidised monoammonium phosphate. Fakes could be filled with anything

Fire extinguishers only official purpose is to be used if your only escape route is blocked by fire, I.e your only way out is to put out a fire. (I’m a fire warden at a hospital) obviously those who are trained to use them would use one to put put out a small fire (electrical fire in a computer or something along those lines)

Agreed. However, domestic housing is designed with fire escape in mind, thusly, it is unlikely you’d need one of these extinguishers at home. Extinguishers at a hospital or any other official place would almost certainly be bigger, have strict standards and, as you said, be used by trained staff. They’d also be regularly maintained and have service certificates. I think these smaller ones are more to worry the general public into spending unnecessary cash.
I’ve never encountered a normal, working class house in the UK that has more than one set of stairs and has fire escapes??? What if the stairs are on fire?

Not looked at this one but I have tried out fake spot on a few occasions and have serious doubts about its accuracy. Rated one products review an A whereas reading the 30 or so reviews myself I could spot the same grammatical and spelling mistakes in 10+ allegedly genuine reviews...


In any case this is sold by amazon and is a fire extinguisher by a reputable brand so likely to be genuine. The majority of the 1star negative reviews appear to be from at least a couple of years ago and also some from non-amazon sellers. Check what you get I guess. In reality I’m not sure how useful the reviews are anyway, how many people will have used the main critical function of these to enable them to write a truly valuable review?!

Pretty sure if you’re competent enough to know you’re capable of putting out a small fire, instead of letting it get out of control and unnecessarily wasting taxpayers money and fire brigades time, then you should do so 🏻
Lot of reviews say that it is not kidde product and pressure gauge is at 0.

Looks good but presumably not ideal to use on anything electrical or chip fat fire as per regular water extinguisher? - I think that's why the powder ones are ideal for home use, unlikely to make the fire worse, or spread burning oil or electrocute the user. Ideal where the user has no training or knowledge of what to do (that of course is a danger)

Edit - scrub the above... this mist extinguisher looks like it's OK on most things...wow looks very interesting.

Mist are great, but the size of A and B fire they can tackle is less than for Powder or Foam. For example, Ultrafire 6L Mist is rated 13A/21B, but 6L Powder is rated 27A/183B and 6L Foam is rated 21A/144B.
Ordered and heat (but not fiery heat obviously), cheers OP

“Due to this, and the potential for powder to impair vision, powder extinguishers are no longer recommended for use within enclosed spaces.”
Not trying to discourage but just trying to understand more.

I've no problems with your second two paragraphs, just the first...

Firefighters work on a risk very reward basis. If they are letting your property burn to the ground, it's probably because it's not worth risking their lives to save your house. If there is a savable life inside the house they'll most likely go in. Firefighters have died in houses searching for casualties that were never inside.

If I had a family member or friend that was a firefighter, I'd sooner choose watching my house burn to the ground, than losing them because they tried to extinguish a fire that was burning immaterial objects. Wouldn't you?

The only problem with car fire is that such a small fire extinguisher won't do any help. You are way better off jumping out of it than attempting to extinguish it and even possibly burn yourself.

You climb out the window. If nothing below to drop onto, then hang by your hands and drop for the minimum distance. Might break an ankle or even leg, but generally preferable to burning to death.

If I have a small fire in my garage or kitchen, of course I'm going to try to put it out (after making sure the rest of the family are out / aware / safe rather than running straight for the exit and letting the entire house burn down. So far in my life I've extinguished a burning motorcycle in my garage (I did wheel it out first) and a burning fence inside the car port - not quite in the house, but if I hadn't put it out I reckon it would have spread to the rest of the house. I'm sure the safest option is to get out and call the fire brigade, but I can't begin to think of the hassle and anguish dealing with a whole-house fire.

Underneath where it says £20.87 on the Amazon page it also says "13 new from £10.95", click that and the £10.95 one is top of the list.
