Emily’s post yesterday about fire extinguishers reminded me that you can never be too careful in the kitchen. I would say the same goes for smoke alarms. I (guiltily) admit to sometimes disabling my smoke alarm when I cook just to avoid setting it off and having to deal with the annoying, unstoppable beeping. But this new smoke and carbon monoxide detector from Nest is pretty great. For one, it talks to you before it starts beeping!
