9 Ways To Save Energy In The Kitchen

Energy-Efficient Appliances

Opt for appliances with high energy efficiency ratings. Modern refrigerators, dishwashers, and ovens often have energy-saving settings.

Cook Smartly

Use stovetop pots of the proper size. Putting a tiny pot on a big burner wastes electricity. For some foods, a pressure cooker or microwave is more energy-efficient than an oven.

Use Dishwasher Efficiently

Run the dishwasher only when it's full, and use its energy-saving setting if available. Avoid using the heat-dry setting; air drying is more energy-efficient.

Oven Use

When using the oven, try to cook multiple items at once. Also, resist the urge to open the oven door frequently, as this releases heat and requires more energy to maintain the temperature.

LED Lighting

Replace traditional light bulbs with LED bulbs, which are more energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan.

Lids on Pots and Pans

Cooking with lids on pots and pans can significantly reduce cooking time and energy consumption.

Unplug Appliances

Even in standby mode, many kitchen appliances consume energy. Unplug them when they're not in use.
