If you want to reduce the impact you have on the environment and cut your energy bills, you’ll want the most efficient cooker you can afford. Read on to find out why some cookers are cheaper to run and what you can do to be more energy efficient.
Cooker Energy Efficiency
Unlike a lot of other household appliances, cookers do not all have an energy efficiency rating. Only electric cookers have an efficiency rating, and only for the oven, not the hob. This makes it more difficult to compare different models, but we can still help you to pick out the most suitable cooker. If you are only interested in electric cookers, then you can use the energy efficiency rating to compare them.
The current ratings for new appliances go from A+++ for the most efficient, down to D for the least efficient. There is some variation within each grade though, so an A-rated cooker from one manufacturer could be more efficient than one from another. To make a like-for-like comparison, look at the average running costs, which are also provided on the label.
One of the biggest differences in terms of energy costs when it comes to cookers is the type of fuel they use. When it comes to running costs, there is one clear winner. If you use your cooker for an average of five hours a week, then you will pay about £17 a year for a gas cooker and about £40 for an electric model. New technology is making electric cookers more efficient though: Induction hobs are particularly efficient as they only heat the pan and its contents. Gas cookers, though, are still generally seen as more efficient, as they build up heat quickly.
Size also affects your cooker’s energy efficiency. Larger appliances need more energy to heat up than small ones, so it’s worth making sure you buy the smallest cooker that meets your need. Remember you might need extra capacity occasionally, perhaps for Christmas dinner!
