Electricity Saving Tips For The Kitchen

When it comes to using electricity saving tips in the home, it helps to take things one step at a
time. Even small measures all add up to reduce your bills and help save the environment. Your
kitchen is one of the areas of the home where you use the most energy, so here are a few tips for
cutting down on the electricity you use.

Your Refrigerator

Although it may seem obvious, be careful not to leave the doors of your refrigerator open for
longer than you need. The longer you keep them open when youre looking inside, the more its
going to have to work to get back down to its original cold temperature. Some other methods that
will stop it working too hard include not overfilling it, making sure that the door doesnt leak any
cold air, and not placing it near any direct sources of heat or in a sunny area of the kitchen.

When Youre Cooking

There are so many electricity saving tips for cooking that wont negatively impact the way you
cook, but can make a huge difference when it comes to saving energy. When youre using pans to
do your cooking, make sure you always cover them for the most efficient heating. You should also
match the size of the pan to the size of the coil heating it.

Cooking food in bulk is a fantastic way to save both time and energy. You can simply freeze the
leftovers and save them for those evenings where you dont have time to cook a whole meal from

Another lazy way to save energy is to try cooking more one-pot dishes. This means that
everything is cooked in the same container, making it easier to cook yet saving electricity at the
same time. Or use a pressure cooker to speed up cooking times for certain meals.

Other great electricity saving tips include turning off the burners just before food is finished
cooking. The residual heat will keep on cooking it for you. This works especially well with pasta:
simply get it to boiling point, place a lid on the pan, turn off the burner and leave it to cook for as
long as the instructions state.

Using the Oven

If youre using the oven, dont keep opening the door to check its ready. This can reduce the
temperature by 25 degrees each time, meaning your oven will need to use more energy to heat
back up again. If your oven is electric, then you can use the same tip as above and turn it off when
the food is nearly done. The oven will stay hot for ten minutes and keep cooking the food.
As you can see, none of these electricity saving tips involve you sacrificing your favorite meals.
They just mean thinking ahead a little and getting into new habits that will soon become second
nature. When you see how much difference they can make to your energy bills, youll be
wondering why you didnt try them sooner!
