Toast proof smoke detector.

We have had these in the van for many years https://www.amazon.co.uk/Thermoptek-...6319301&sr=8-1

They are properly toast proof. The operate optically. If you are fed up with yours going off every time you make toast this is the answer.

I am just buying one for the house so thought I would post this.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

It is proof against all food as far as I can tell. Unless it snacks secretly when we are out. Perhaps it eats socks and biros.

Do the others go off when you use a toaster or when you burn toast under a grill?

As a lover of my toast "bien cuit" to the state of blackness roughly equal to a black hole, I have found the only really reliable manner is to take it down before the toast goes down for the second, or third, time.....

We used to have one where if one pressed a button, it disabled it for 10 minutes, but my toast defeated it.... it definitely was colourist and did not welcome my style of cooking burning.

If it comes out of the toaster, or grill, with smoke issuing girth that's about cooked, then leave to go cold and apply butter in equal thickness. Burn, eat, repeat is my motto. I do approve of Nigella's style of cooking, but could not be bothered doing it in two stages, let it cool and you can get more on the first time.

Thank heavens for statins though....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I think cancer is a greater risk from burnt toast. Brown is cooked black is burnt!

I wonder if its bacon proof!

My favourite way of toast stems back to toast in the nurses home

Toast it, wrap in in a tea towel whist warm, when rubbery, spread it thick with butter

Definitely moorish

Our smoke alarms are wired in to the house. Part of the house rewire regulations. There is no way to turn it off!! The poor dog goes mental when a whiff of smoke sets it off. Only when all the smoke has gone will the bloomin' thing stop shrieking. I must remember to ask for heat detector ones in the kitchen of the new bungalow.
