Quick Tip: The Pesky Smoke Detector!

I hate having a smoke detector in the kitchen, but they are supposed to be there – or at least real close. It’s so irritating when you’re not even burning food and the thing has to go off. I think it has just as much to do with heat as with smoke.

So here is my quick tip:

Point a fan toward the smoke detector whenever you bake or cook,

plug it in, and turn it on.

It works for me.

Bonus tip: Set the fan up in a location where it can stay, plug it in, and keep it at the ready. It does not need to be a large fan.

Happy cooking!
