Yes that is right, I have boycotted my oven! Well not forever, just while its un bearably hot out. I can't run it in the summer often, it just makes this little place way to hot. and our over head fan broke, and I found that to help divert the hot air outside....

We have been girlling alot more lately.

I avoid using a crock-pot that puts out heat for 8+ hours.

I use it all the time in cooler weather. I just don't use it when it keeps the a/c running all day.

I have been known to put my crock pot out side when it is too hot, or in my garage. It has a lock down lid, but before I had that one I would put a brick on top to keep the pets & / or pests out of it.

I use my crockpot and grill a lot.  The crockpot doesn't put out THAT much heat.
