If anyone has any AT&T or Cricket non-smartphone (without service) that they are not using and can give them away or lend them until kids go back to school, please PM me.
Thank you very much!
Bump.

As per Rav Yaakov Kaminetzky zt"l, there is a difference between a fridge and oven in regard to opening. (A relative of mine asked him.)
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

Shabbos mode should take care of that issue.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Opening and closing an oven is worse than opening and closing a refrigerator
The star k permits opening a refrigerator on shabbos, yet does not allow closing an oven door if there is food inside.

Shabbos mode should take care of that issue.
"Myth #5: When an oven is in STAR-K Sabbath mode during Shabbos, the oven door may be opened in order to remove some food, then closed, and subsequently opened once again in order to remove more food.
Fact: On Shabbos, when an oven is in STAR-K Sabbath mode and the oven door is opened, all of the food in the oven must be removed before closing the door. On Yom Tov, it is not necessary to remove all of the food when the oven door is opened."

Why won't waiting to open until the fire goes on help for this?

Because that causes the flame to burn longer, Like adding oil to a candle that is already burning.
(Obviously It's not "like" that, otherwise It wouldn't be allowed even when the oven is empty.)
