I have a small clip on fan that I use to speed up cooling. I open a cabinet door and clip the fan on to the cabinet and set it up to point over the food that needs cooling. And my stove timer is super obnoxious and does not shut off when it reaches the time so it is a good weapon for me to use for remembering to check things that I need to cool before putting away. It is so loud that I can hear it from pretty much anywhere in the house.
I especially hated it wen a very tall guest who had insisted on doing the dinner cleanup, left a pound of jumbo shrimp on top of the refrigerator. The next morning he came to me and innocently asked, "Do you think It should be thrown away?"
