Cooking and baking

You can save lots of energy in the kitchen without compromising on taste. The key tips on cooking and baking:

Use the right pan: Always use pots and pans that fit properly on the hob. The bottom should be smooth and flat to ensure optimal heat transfer.

Always use lids: Always use lids that cover the pan properly when cooking and remove them as infrequently as possible. Each time you lift the lid, heat escapes into the air and much more energy is required. Glass lids are therefore ideal.

Use as little water as possible: The less water used, the less energy is required to bring your pan to the boil.

Switch off early: Switch off the oven early around five minutes before the cooking time is reached. Ceramic or cast-iron hobs provide sufficient residual heat to ensure the food cooks.

Pressure cookers: Use pressure cookers for dishes with long cooking times. This saves electricity and time.

Cooking with gas

Gas cookers are the most economical. They only consume around half as much energy as electric cookers. The required heat is reached immediately upon ignition and they can be controlled with precision.

Only use for large amounts: Only roast pieces of meat over 1 kilogram in the oven. The hob is more economical for smaller amounts.

Avoid pre-heating: Many recipes say that the oven should be pre-heated. However, this is only really necessary for sensitive pastries e.g. for sponge mixtures or puff pastries. You can do without pre-heating for most dishes.

Keep the oven door closed: Do not open the oven door more often than necessary to prevent the loss of heat.

Use several shelves: In fan-assisted ovens, you can roast and bake on up to four different shelves at the same time. You can even prepare different dishes. Complete meals with vegetables, side dishes and meat can also be prepared simultaneously to make optimal use of energy.

Switch off early: Use the oven’s residual heat by switching off 5 to 10 minutes before reaching cooking time.

Built-in microwave: If a microwave is integrated into the oven, you can save time and electricity by using both at the same time.

Essential small appliances, such as coffee machines, kettles, toasters and microwaves, are extremely practical and use less power than the oven and hob and are often also faster.
