You and most people are wrong on one point. Ionisation alarms can cover kitchens with no significant false alarms IF positioned correctly. Obviously 'correctly' there means something different than for other alarm types or in other locations.

That goes against the advice from every manufacturer.

It certainly works well.
Commercial installers of course want to stick something in & forget it, and that's who such advice is aimed at. But an ionisation alarm needs moving until it no longer false alarms.
And since the kitchen is the prime fire risk area, I'd rather have it ionised than heated.
