Answer:
Yes, I am ashamed to admit it does. I was frying some food, and one thing led to another...but yes, it works well on grease fires. It put it out almost immediately upon spraying it.

Answer:

Answer:
Just be aware, read the 1 star ratings on here for this plastic valve Kidde unit. They are notorious for losing pressure over time, Kidde has had multiple recalls going back into the 1990's for various plastic-valve models. Also the gauge may be frozen in the "green" zone but the unit may have leaked out all pressure… see more Just be aware, read the 1 star ratings on here for this plastic valve Kidde unit. They are notorious for losing pressure over time, Kidde has had multiple recalls going back into the 1990's for various plastic-valve models. Also the gauge may be frozen in the "green" zone but the unit may have leaked out all pressure. You get what you pay for, compare this model to any metal-valve 2 1/2 lb extinguisher from Amerex, Ansul, Buckeye, Badger etc and you'll see the difference. Fire extinguishers are like parachutes, it's too late to buy a better one at the moment that you need to use it. see less Just be aware, read the 1 star ratings on here for this plastic valve Kidde unit.

Answer:
UL tests all dry chemicals to operate at up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This includes the Kidde® automotive fire extinguisher. The operational test requires the fire extinguisher to discharge at a specified time and powder amount. UL does not have the option of testing for operation above 120 degrees.

UL tests all dry chemicals to operate at up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This includes the Kidde® automotive fire extinguisher. The operational test requires the fire extinguisher to discharge at a specified time and powder amount. UL does not have the option of testing for operation above 120 degrees.
At temperatures above 120 degrees the fire extinguisher will still function, but the discharge time may be a little shorter than the 9 to 10 seconds required by UL.
UL requires the fire extinguisher to be able to withstand storage at 175 degrees without rupture.
High temperatures will decrease the life of the elastomeric seals, so storage above 120 degrees will decrease the life of the fire extinguisher. see less
