These clever artificial flowers are used to put out oil and grease fires.
They have magnets and stick to your refrigerator or other magnetic surface. If you have a fire, you simply grab them and toss them on the flames, where they melt into a gooey film and extinguish the blaze - as shown in the video below.
Melted, these flowers make quite a mess, but then so does the spray from a canister fire extinguisher, or worse - the destruction and mess of a fire unchecked.
These fire flowers, which are not unattractive, strike us as a novel and amusing yet highly practical gift. You would be remembered every time the cook sees them in his or her kitchen. And in the event of a fire your name would be revered!
