Just give that steak a nice sear, Emeril says. Like searing won't send your smoke alarm into a fit, waking up the dog, ticking off the neighbors, and ruining dinner as you abandon the steak to frantically unscrew the damned thing from the ceiling and chuck it out the window. This Nest Smoke Alarm and CO Detector ($129) is so much more polite. It'll still let you know that your visiting nephew has managed to set your trash on fire, but a wave of your hand is all it takes to silence a false alarm.
