What kind of fire extinguisher do I need for a commercial kitchen?

Class K. Class K fire extinguishers use a special process called saponification to put out fires caused by fats and oils by basically turning them into soap.

Whatever you do, make sure you never, ever put water on a flaming pan of oil. When water hits the pan, it sinks and vaporizes almost instantly, pushing the fiery oil up in a massive plume of flame.
