@SA_Penguin: So the logical thing [from my perspective] would be to trip circuit breakers. THEN start waving away smoke.

He's an 18-year-old lad with no interest in science or technology -- he wouldn't know a circuit breaker if one crawled up his leg and bit him in ... a very unfortunate place.

@Aeroengineer: Where is the like button for this?

There are a bunch of "buttons" under the title to the blog, including a "Rate it" button.

@sa_penguin: "I've never heard of a self-cleaning oven" One auto-cleaning method is to rise the oven's temperature at about 500ºC so the residuals/spills are burned and reduced to small particles (powder).

And that can effectively produce smoke! ;)

I've never heard of a self-cleaning oven, I'm assuming its an electric oven. So the logical thing [from my perspective] would be to trip circuit breakers. THEN start waving away smoke.

Once enough smoke cleared, I'd start resetting the breakers. If the oven is on a clearly marked breeaker, I could leave that off (or trip only that one to start with).

All your home computers DO have protection from a power loss, don't they?

Max.... "Did she listen to me? Ha. Why is it that no one ever listens to what I have to say?"

That's not strictly true.  Many of your readers on EE Times hang on your every word.  Not listening to anything you say is a wife's prerogative......

@antedeluvian: I find my iPad ideal for this action. A free app, and the iPad doesn't even have to be on.

Of course, if you had one of those Bell Apps then you coudl be sounding the alarm bell whilst fanning the smoke detector...

Joseph immediately dragged a stool under the detector, mounted the stool, and started fanning the detector with a magazine.

I find my iPad ideal for this action. A free app, and the iPad doesn't even have to be on.
