Energy Savers

  • Preheat your oven right before you use it.
  • For energy-efficiency, defrost your freezer regularly.
  • Turn off lights when you leave the kitchen.
  • Avoid the habit of leaving the heat under the coffeepot all day. Turn it off when it's no longer needed.
  • Buy energy-efficient appliances. Dishwashers that use less hot water save energy, too.
  • Keep the oven and the refrigerator doors shut. Each time you peek inside, your appliance needs to use power to regain its set temperature. For the refrigerator, decide what you want before you open the door. When using the oven, use a timer. Tip: An open oven isn't efficient or safe for heating your kitchen!
  • Keep appliances in good condition: tight gaskets around the oven and refrigerator doors. For efficiency, a gas stove should burn with a blue, not a yellowish, flame in the pilot light.
  • Use equipment to cook faster, such as a microwave or convection oven, a pressure cooker, or ovens that also use radiant or halogen heat.
  • Trim the flame. Use a burner that matches the cooking pot.
  • Arrange baking pans in the oven so air circulates. You'll get more even baking, and your food will cook faster and more efficiently.
  • Use the self-cleaning feature on your oven judi-ciously—when it really needs cleaning. For a head start, start it while the oven is still hot from baking.
