  • No. When it's 115 outside, the last thing I want to do is use my oven. I have a great Cuisinart toaster oven that I use all summer for basic stuff, and the rest goes on the grill.

  • I try not to use the oven unless the outside temps are below 80 or so. It simply warms up the house too much and we try not to have the AC below a certain temp to save on elec. We do a lot of salads, sandwiches, and even just apps for dinner when it is too hot.

  • I do, but the heat from it doesn't seem to spread through my house like it does for other people.

  • I use it maybe every other day. Weekends we will use the grill.

  • Yes but not for major stuff- only about a half hour at a time or so -

  • I do, I live in a warmer climate so, if I didn't use the oven when it got too hot, I'd rarely cook.

  • We're at 106* currently, so yeah.. I use the oven as little as possible. Maybe 2-3 times per month, if that. I try to avoid it.
