Using A Fire Extinguisher

Never in my life did I think I would ever need to use a fire extinguisher, luckily my boyfriend had the foresight to make sure our kitchen was well equipped, just in case. In the last two months I've had to use one twice. First on our toaster oven over a piece of toast. This morning, much to my dismay a cardboard pizza box was left in oven and I unknowingly turned on the oven to make my breakfast. I smelled smoke a few minutes in, turned off the oven and grabbed the extinguisher. Now I need to figure out if there is a certain way I need to clean up the powder residue left over from my breakfast mishap. Has anyone else ever had to use a fire extinguisher in their kitchen? Does anyone else keep one in their kitchen and my most pressing question, is my oven ruined now? Chowhounds...
