Greatist Logo By Anisha Jhaveri of Greatist | Slide 1 of 43: Crock-Pot Recipes

Summertime, and the living is…well, hot. When stratospheric temperatures make you want to do nothing but sit in an ice bath all day, using a slow cooker might initially seem like a preposterous idea—isn’t that thing just for winter meals?

But don’t put that Crock-Pot into storage just yet! You'll be pleasantly surprised at how useful this appliance can be even during the warmer months, sparing you from turning the oven on and turning your kitchen into a sauna. Forget steaming stews and cozy casseroles, and try some tacos, corn on the cob, and scalloped peaches. Cooking in the summer just got a whole lot cooler!
