Would it bust the glass? Would a blanket of some kind be better?

Insufficient data. What's on fire? The glass stovetop is not going to catch fire.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

CO2 probably would at least crack it. An ABC chem one would likely be fine.

Stove fires are probably 99%+ grease/oil fires anyway. Get a dry chem one, and keep it under the sink. Doesn't need to be big. 1A10BC probably would be fine.

And, um, why don't they have one already?

Seconded.

I still have some ABC dry chemical fire extinguishers around, but have also obtained a few Element Fire Extinguishers as well (and have those in the vehicles) - I get the feeling that their shelf life will be longer than the canister-type extinguishers.

Fire extinguishers leave a big cleanup mess for what is usually a rather small fire.

If it is a fire in a pan, just put a lid on. Most other fires can be quickly smothered by tossing a fire blanket over it.

This. Dry chem extinguishers tend to leave a sticky residue that can be tough to clean.

Maybe a big bag of salt near the stovetop?

Most likely a grease fire. I’m wondering if the fire retardant would break or crack or pit or discolor the glass.
