Okay - as I mentioned earlier, I have the world's most sensitive fire alarm in my new apartment and I'm not being dramatic here. I turned the oven on last night to preheat it to make baked sweet potato fries - at 380 degrees. I put the fries in and 3 minutes later, fire alarm started going off! The potatoes were still bright orange and hard - definitely not smoky and burnt! I'm not sure if it's sensing the heat or what, but I'm about ready to unplug it. So, given that's not the safe option for a girl living by herself - or really for anyone for that matter, I'm looking for a different solution. Any suggestions out there? What makes a fire alarm more sensitive than another? Different brand? Are there different levels? Please help me! I cook WAY too much to be fanning the alarm every time I want to cook - plus my ceilings are high and I have to get out a step stool to even make a difference while fanning a dish towel. I would also like to point out that the alarm isn't even in the kitchen - it's over near the bedroom!I appreciate any suggestions for different alarms or ways to make it care less about my not-smoky cooking!
