How to Stay Cool While Cooking During the Summer

Love to cook but hate the added heat indoors during the summer? Us too. But that doesn’t mean you should resort to microwave dinners. Here are four ways to keep your meals fresh while keeping your kitchen cool from MTB.Put the grill to work. You know what they say — if you can’t handle the heat, get out of the kitchen. That saying takes on a new meaning during the summer. Nothing tastes better than meat and veggies fresh off the grill. Keep the heat out of your kitchen by cooking the main course outside and assembling inside.
Avoid boiling. Moisture and heat combined in the kitchen are what make cooking unbearable in the summer. Put the boiling-heavy meals on hold for a few months, because they will heighten your humidity levels and lower your sanity.
Decrease your oven usage. Bake all the casseroles you want during the winter, but limit your oven time during the hotter months. Turning that knob is a surefire way to make your kitchen feel like a greenhouse.
Use smaller appliances. Now is the time to break out the air fryer, crockpot, InstaPot, George Foreman and toaster oven. They will produce less heat, so get creative and try out new recipes.
