We've had the Kidde in our kitchen for 2 years and normally pull it out near the grill during a bbq. It's a great size that isn't obtrusive and won't make you feel as if it should be hidden.
Last weekend, without us realizing it, a few embers fell from the grill into a gap in the siding and our deck. The embers started a fire between the siding and the wall with 10 ft flames. By the time we noticed the fire, we had seconds to react and a small window to put it out with the extinguisher or else we would have to focus on calling the fire dept and evacuating the house.
The extinguisher had just enough chemicals in it to extinguish a 5ft x 5ft base of fire with ~10ft tall flames. The chemicals sprayed in a predictiable and controllable manner that I would describe as a moderate to low pressure. The extinguisher was out of chemicals just as we sprayed the last area. This size is perfect if you're confident that you know how to use an extinguisher without wasting chemicals and are likely to have a small fire footprint. If those don't apply, I would highly recommend a second extinguisher or larger capacity.
As with all emergency products, make sure that you and everyone in the house knows how to properly operate them. We saved precious time knowing where the extinguisher was, how to remove the safety, and WHERE to aim. It is critical that you aim at the base of the fire and not the flames.
This is my 2nd experience using a Kidde once at work and now at home. I'll never use another brand..

Was planning to have one for a long time. Just in case. This one is nice compact, easy to install. Instruction to use are straightforward and and look easy. Easy Maintenance, just look at the dial once in a while for right pressure. Priced right and I get discount from my home insurance. I haven't used it, hopefully I never have to.

I like this fire extinguisher for the normal features, but the thing I like best is the color. White looks very normal hanging on the kitchen wall in plain view.
