Every little bit counts, so make the most of your energy efficiency in the kitchen:
- Use the best size pot or pan for what you will be cooking. Smaller pans are cheaper and more energy efficient to heat up.
- For electric and gas stovetops make sure you have the best fit pot for fitting the heating element (i.e. small pot on smaller burner, larger pot on larger burner rather than a small pot on a larger burner which will waste energy).
- For gas stovetops – make sure the flame is fully below the cookware.
