The fine vaporized cloud that comes out of the extinguisher, prevents the oil from splashing or jumping on, attacking only the surface of the fire. Potassium acetate extinguishers for class K fires were created to extinguish vegetable oil fires in commercial kitchen fryers or grease fires in industrial stores or in restaurants or industrial kitchens.
