Please take the time to research area/material specific extinguishers.

A "Kitchen" extinguisher will be non toxic and easier to clean up.

ABC is not for use in oil fires such as most kitchen fires. ABC can turn into toxic fumes/chemicals in certain fires. ABC dry chemical is inappropriate for certain metal fires (Class-D) as well as cooking oil fires (Class-K).

I keep a large bag of baking soda in the pantry and if you have an oil fire in a pan use a lid with a large pot holder to cover and snuff the fire out. I also have a box of baking soda on hand using the grill for grill oil fires. Easy clean up.

EDIT: I also have a Kitchen extinguisher at hand.
