Recommendations from an expert
It is essential that you have a fire extinguisher in your kitchen since it is the most likely room in your home for a fire to start. Typically kitchen fires are grease fires, and they cannot be put out with water. In fact, trying to put them out with water is very dangerous. Putting water on a grease fire can actually cause a grease explosion showering you with hot grease. Do not use water on a grease fire!
While the most likely place you'll need to use a fire extinguisher in the kitchen is the stove/oven area, it is actually not good to store your fire extinguisher too close to the stove. The reason is that if something catches fire on or near the stove it may force you to have to reach through the flames to grab the extinguisher -- not good. So instead, store your kitchen fire extinguisher somewhere a bit further away from the stove, but still within easy reach.
You should also keep an extinguisher on each floor of your home, just so one is close by without having to run up or down stairs. This would include one in a basement if you have it, as well as upstairs if you have one of those. In addition, many fire experts suggest keeping a fire extinguisher in the garage. That's because this is another prime location fires occur in homes, since this tends to be where people often store things like excess paint, other chemicals, and building materials.
