Double duty


Marlon’s improvised defroster…an upturned metal collander that fits snugly onto our slow cooker. This captures and uses waste heat from the cooker, not that the heat is really wasted at this time of year – it contributes a little to keeping the house warm. In this way, the electricity used for the cooking is used in 2 additional ways.

I suppose, given time, that this system could have cooked the meat too.

This is a great example of what I’m trying to explore – things that can be done around the suburban home to reduce costs and ecological footprints with a minimum of expense.
