tips
Although the energy used for cooking is usually a
very small percentage
of the total energy used in
the home, cooking energy can be used efficiently.
Here are some tips to help you save energy
when using your cooking product.
l
Use pans with flat bottoms, straight sides and
tight-fitting
lids.
l
Cook with a minimum of liquid or fat to help
shorten cooking time.
l
Preheat pans only when recommended
and for
the shortest time possible.
l
Start food on higher heat settings, then set
surface burner control on low or off to finish
cooking. Use retained heat for cooking when
possible.
l
Use the more efficient surface burners instead
of the oven when possible.
l
Turn on the surface burner only after placing
filled pan on the burner grate.
l
"Oven peeking"
may cause heat loss, longer
cooking times and unsatisfactory
baking
results. Rely on your timer to keep track of the
cooking time.
l
Bake cakes, pies or cookies when oven is
warm. Best time is after a meal has been
cooked in it.
l
Preheat the oven no longer than necessary.
l
Plan your meals for the most efficient use of
the range. When using the oven to cook one
food, try to cook the rest of the meal in it also.
l
Do not preheat when roasting or cooking items
such as casseroles.
