I am looking for the type that has a 20 minute delay button. This allows you to "cook" in the MH without setting off a false alarm. Does anyone know where I can purchase one of these alarms? I usually end up taking out the batter everytime we cook.

Have you ever tried covering it with a shower cap? Then, you don't have to remove anything (except the shower cap after you're finished cooking and the air has cleared).

Used to have one years ago but couldn't find a replacement when it died. Now I've forgotten the brand name of that model. So now we pull the battery out like everybody else.

This appears to be the 918 model - the "Hush Button" is for the delay. However, the Kidde manual (available on their web site) indicates the delay is only 7 minutes.

Our smoke/fire detector nearest the kitchen has a twist lock mount, very easy to take off and put back on. The only problem is that we will sometimes forget to put it back on. Taking the battery out could pose a simular problem. I like the suggestion of Frank Martin, to use a shower cap ...I might add a hanging colorful ribbon strip as a reminder of not being protected until that shower cap comes off.

Thanks Frank for telling us about the shower cap.

I was in Lowes today and they had several Kidde smoke detector models, a couple with "hush" buttons. Most of the ones designated kitchen models had the Hush feature - all except the very cheapest model.
