||Target has on sale, I think it is 22$ or so, the most wonderful appliance. It is a Rival portable oven, a re-issue of the famous Nesco, the Depression era answer for hot weather cooking (just plug it in on the porch).
It comes in different sizes up to 20 qts and does everything any other oven does (bakes cakes, chicken, cholent even serves as a buffet warmer).
We have taken it cross country, used it to serve Hamin in the synagogue, plugged it in outside when it is just too hot to cook and lived out of it when our regular oven broke (made in China electronics).
The best thing about it - no electronics!!! For under $30 you should be free of chulent juggling problems forever.
I hope this makes your life easier.
