Got one of these babies gathering dust in your garage? Ever wondered if it's really worth the real estate it occupies? Well, if you're fighting hot weather and a lack of desire to heat up your house by cooking, you might just be looking at the solution to your problem. A turkey roaster can be used to cook almost anything that a regular oven can cook.

You can bake bread. You can bake cookies. You can cook a casserole or a meat loaf or a peach crisp. There's no need to adjust the time or temperature of your recipe. Simply set the turkey roaster to the temperature that your recipe recommends, place your pan inside, put on the lid, and set your timer.

Now here's where this idea really shines. Place your turkey roaster someplace where the cooking heat is not going to make you uncomfortable: on a workbench in the garage, in your laundry room with the door closed, or even outside on the picnic table. Then let 'er cook.

Obviously you'll need an electrical outlet nearby. You'll want to keep the roaster away from children and pets, and away from anything flammable like newspapers or cardboard boxes. But beyond that you have absolute freedom. So dust off that turkey roaster and get cooking! Delicious food. No sweat.

Even in August.
