Saving Energy

Microwave Ovens
1. Consumes 50% less energy than conventional electric/gas stoves.
2. Do not bake large food items.
3. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not even need to preheat.
4. Don't open the oven door too often to check food condition as each opening leads to a temperature drop of 25°C.
Electric Stove
1. Turn off electric stoves several minutes before the specified cooking time.
2. Use flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the cooking coil.
3. Use tight-fitting covers on pots and pans when cooking on the stove to shorten your cooking time and save energy.
Gas Stove
1. When cooking on a gas burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve LPG.
2. Remember that a blue flame means your gas stove is operating efficiently.
3. Yellowish flame is an indicator that the burner needs cleaning.
4. Use pressure cookers as much as possible.
5. Use lids to cover the pans while cooking.
6. Bring items taken out of refrigerators (like vegetables, milk etc) to room temperature before placing on the gas stove for heating.
Water Heater
