I always replace the factory ionization type smoke detectors with photo electric type detectors. Seldom have a problem unless cooking creates a fair amount of smoke. I make sure each separate sleeping area has a detector. I have worked in the fire alarm industry for the last 25 years.

I like that idea whiteknight. Of course I also thought about just taking the detector down when were cooking, half a twist and down it comes. Just set it outside while were cooking. Seems easier than trying to take that battery out every time. I like the idea of replacing it but i'm not sure how the Photo electric works. I would hate for it not to go off fast enough to actually get out should there be a real fire?
