Thanks for the tip, this unit is pretty small, maybe 10 inches high, easy to store anywhere. I will probably keep it.

My brother lit an ~ 6 ft. tree out in the front yard to make for quick disposal. There was prolly close to a foot or more of snow on the ground.
After he put a match to it, within seconds it was fully engulfed. From 20-25 ft, and inside behind double pane windows, I could feel heat on my face!
The flames went at least 30' into the air.
The neighbors behind us saw the flames and called the Fire Dept. (Greeeaaaattttttttt)!
I decided that day I would never use a real tree, and I am as traditional as they come!
If that ignites indoors, your house is gone, period!!

Airplane owners love them because they are small and are perfect for putting out electrical fires.

For kitchen use the Kidde FX10K (or 21008173 Kitchen Fire Extinguisher). Cook's Illustrated did a review and found FX10K one of the best. I can tell you that when our microwave popcorn caught on fire, this unit put out PLENTY of baking soda. If this doesn't work, then you need to call 911 and leave the house.
"This Kidde fire extinguisher uses a non-toxic sodium bicarbonate powder that's easy to clean up and is electrically nonconductive, an important feature for kitchen fires.[/I]

I'd be more worried about finding the problem with my engine after I put the fire out, rather than going, "Welp, I'll just let the whole car burn up because I dumped a bunch of oil on the exhaust the other day."

you've got much bigger issues on your hand if you have a car engine fire. they just don't catch on fire for the hell of it
