How do I put out this kind of fire? adult content

I was frying up some baby batter for dinner and started a grease fire. I moved it to the sink and put water on it and it valcanoed and went out. I guess that's not how you put out a grease fire....Anyway, what's the best way? Also, is there something better to fry baby batter in other than a frying pan? thanks in advance.

  • I'd think to put a lid over it and smother it. I dealt with a grease fire and it was an easier way, but when I threw a rag over it...it didn't help...so my inlaws threw a lid over it and it went out.

  • Baking powder/ soda or taking it away from the heat, and covering it.

  • OH MY GOD WOMAN!! Consider yourself lucky u didn';t burn the rest of the house down or burn yourself! Don't EVER use water!! Use flour, baking power, no sugar!! Sugar with crystalize and will be hard as hell to clean it up. Flour is your best bet, cause it will smother it out. Or get a fire extinguisher formulated for grease fire. The best thing to use is a deep fry daddy if u do this often.

  • baking soda, flour, sand.

    Never ever through water on a grease/oil fire. Oil/grease floats on water. Michigan-mom is right, you are very lucky.

  • Momma... Invest in a kitchen fire extinguisher! It's a good thing you weren't hurt, let alone have a home still standing.
    Next, consider investing in a small deep fryer. It will save you a lot of mess (and trouble).

  • It amazes me at how many people did not catch the whole idea of you cooking semen - honestly, it comes out warm enough already, no need to cook it.
