Also you can mount it on the wall it comes with the bracket to do so.

Yes you do.
Off the track of the original thread, but I recommend everyone have at least one, 5 lb ABC (flammable liquids, flammable solids, and electrical) fire extinguisher in your home, maybe even two. At least one in the kitchen and the second one, if wanted, in the garage.
I have the little 5 lb-er in the kitchen, but I was able to score one from work for the garage, a big 20 lb ABC. If I really wanted to, I could probably score a free 10 lb ABCD from my brother (he works for the airlines in Nashville), but there aren't many flammable metals (D) around the house.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
