What are some good ways to save energy when I use my stove and oven?

You actually can save energy with little basic tricks. Make sure your burners and elements are clean in your oven and on your stove. If you have flat top burners keep them clean as well. Replace elements that are not working correctly so that they will not have to work so hard to get the job done. When you cook in the oven and you are making more than one dish at a time, put them all in at the same time so you are heating the oven for longer times to cook each dish separately. Do not overcook foods. If you have to use water to boil things, make sure you use the right amount of water so you are not heating extra water. If you are baking and do not have to constantly test the foods you are baking to see if they are done, use the window instead of opening and closing the oven door all the time. Every time you open and close the door you lose heat and the oven has to work harder to replace the lost warm air. Use the appropriate burners for the cooking jobs that you are doing. In other words do not use a huge pan to cook a tiny item. Use the small burners for smaller pots and pans. If you can, let the foods you are going to cook thaw out before you cook them. Frozen food is going to take longer to cook. Simple tricks can save energy every time you use your stove and oven. Mama Nono
