And when you’re creating greatness in your own kitchen try to be energy efficient, as cooking makes up about 70% of your energy bill and refrigeration 11%*

Here are some handy hints and tips:

  • A microwave oven is the most energy efficient, followed by a slow cooker, then a hob and oven.
  • Use the kettle to boil water then add to a pot.
  • Flat-bottomed pans that are the same size as the element retain heat best.
  • Don’t put hot food in the fridge, allow food to cool to room temperature.
