Use the microwave
to save on cooking

Using a microwave instead of an oven can significantly reduce your cooking costs. Microwaves are more energy-efficient than ovens, using high-frequency electromagnetic radiation to heat food quickly and with less energy, resulting in lower electricity bills.

Moreover, microwaves are more efficient at heating small food portions than ovens, as heat is dispersed throughout the entire oven, even if only a small portion of food is being cooked. However, a microwave only heats up the food being cooked, which means it uses less energy to achieve the same result.

With no preheating time, a microwave is a quick, convenient and energy-efficient appliance where your recipe permits. Depending on the settings, microwaves can cook everything from cakes to roasts.
