This is so true about no water on a grease fire. I learned the hard way, too. Now I have 2 fire extinguishers - one on either side of the stove.

wow 2!?? keep a box of arm and hammer baking soda near as well. Its a good first response tool. Its much easier to clean up, and isn't harmful. if it doesn't work you know you have a fire extinguisher handy.

I do have the baking soda now. GB, one of our mods here, told me about this when I first joined and it's put out the few little flare ups I've had since then. So much easier to clean up then the stuff that comes out of the fire extinguisher. Really, I've learned a lot since joining and don't have nearly as many kitchen disasters as I used to.
