Saucepan Fire Extinguisher (SFE)

Saucepan Fire Extinguishers (SFE) sachets offer an easy, safe and effective way of extinguishing dangerous saucepan fires, within seconds by an untrained person.


The SFE sachets react instantly with hot, burning cooking oil or fats by creating a chemical reaction to form a blanket of cooling foam that extinguishes the fire and prevents reignition.


Cooking oil and grease saucepan fires are the main causes of fires and fatalities within the kitchen, accounting for approximately twenty serious incidents a day.  Kitchen fires caused by the cooking oil can spread fast and occupants are generally too panic'd to handle the fire with appropriate mechanisms such as fire extinguishers and fire blankets.  Delays in extinguishing the fire can cause the fire to spread and the loss of the property and injury to the occupant.


SFE is a simple yet effective solution to stop cooking oil fires.  Gently place the sachet into the burning oil saucepan to release the special extinguishing agent.  The liquid chemically reacts with the cooking oil to form a foam layer on the surface which starves the oxygen and cools the cooking oil into a non-combustible liquid, quickly extinguishing the fire.

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
