Just the steam from cooking will set the smoke detector off.

At least my 2015 has a silencing feature: Ripthecoveroffandpulloutthebattery!

DW likes to fry an egg in a hole in a slice of bread. That sets off our ceiling smoke alarm so we now call it our 'toast detector'.

When the kids were small, the smoke detector in the house was called "the kitchen timer". It went off just about the time dinner was ready!

Just wanted to post a comment for those who say to buy a cheap CO detector. The RV detector is for both LP and CO gasses. Not sure that a cheap home unit will detect LP gas as well? Worth checking to make sure you are getting the same safety factor.

I need to open the unit up for measurement, but I am going to get the same one. LP and CO

Thanks

If you replace your ionization type smoke detector with a photocell type it will eliminate most (not all) alarms from cooking and toasting. You can pick them up at Wal-Mart.

But the discussion as I understand it is for CO/LP detectors. Somehow the smoke detector got in the mix and people are posting about both. That's fine, just don't get them confused!i

Thanks for this post. My propane/carbon monoxide detector is approaching its fifth year anniversary. Just ordered a new one in brown. About $70.

Installed the new one today...easy, peasy! This time I got the brown color to match the cabinets a little better than the old white one.
