Use your oven
light to reduce
Although tempting, opening the oven door to check on the progress of your meal will cost you. Each time the oven door is opened, the temperature inside is reduced, meaning the oven needs to work harder to compensate for the heat loss. Make sure the oven door closes tightly and the seals are in good condition.
To check on your cooking, make use of the oven light. Not only will it save energy and money, but it will also reduce cooking time.
For further savings, cooking on fan force helps to distribute the oven’s heat evenly allowing you to cook at a lower temperature. This uses less energy and reduces cooking time compared to a conventional oven.
