What do you do when your oven sets off your smoke detector? We have two smoke detectors, both placed on opposite sides of our kitchen, and they go off whenever the oven is heated above 450 for more than 20 minutes or so. So, whenever I am roasting chicken or preparing to cook pizza or just about any time I want to use the oven, dammit.

There has to be a better solution besides running and fanning the area in front of the detector every few minutes. We tried taking out the batteries, but that did not deter the detectors one bit.

On the plus side, we did sign a lot of paperwork about the detectors and agreed to test them once a month. I guess that is covered.
