                     Tips on how you can save in the kitchen


                                          Dishwasher
                                          ■   Run dishwashers on hot water rather than cold
                                              water unless you have a small electric hot water
                                              unit. Using cold water increases the cost.

                                          ■   Change the wash cycle according to the type of
                                              load to reduce costs. Use the shortest washing
                                              cycle where possible.

                                          ■   Wait until the dishwasher is fully loaded before
                                              you switch it on, reducing the number of times
                                              you use it.

                                          Microwave
                                          ■   Use your microwave whenever you can, because
                                              it uses less than half the energy of an oven.
                                              Microwaves can cook three times faster, while
                                              using 70% less electricity.

                                          ■   Stir or turn food over regularly to cook food evenly
                                              and speed up cooking time.

                                          Cooking
                                          ■   Keep oven door shut when cooking. Every time it’s
                                              opened, more energy is used.

                                          ■   Thaw foods completely before cooking, to save
                                              cooking time and energy.

                                          ■   Keep pot lids on and simmer gently, rather than
                                              boiling rapidly.
