Use your oven instead of your cook top to cut cooking costs. Surface units heat continuously, but an insulated oven normally heats one-third of the time it’s in use.
Don’t peek. Cooking temperatures can drop as much as 50° every time the oven door is opened, causing the oven to have to reheat.
Use the oven’s self-cleaning cycle only for big cleaning jobs. Start the cycle while the oven is still hot from baking.
Use small appliances such as crockpots, electric frying pans, toaster ovens, and microwave ovens to save when cooking.
