Energy Savvy Alternatives

Try one of these energy savvy alternatives just once a week, and you could save (and cook) in an instant

What do we mean by energy savvy alternatives? 
We have found several energy efficient products on the market that will do the same job as your standard appliances, but for considerably less energy, and therefore money. 

Ovens are particularly inefficient because you have to heat up the oven first, and then your food – if you can avoid using your oven 2-3 times a week, and try an alternative, you could save up to £250* a year. 

The Alternatives
Microwaves, slow cookers, electric pressure cookers and air fryers all consume significantly less energy than ovens, so using these over your oven will save you money.

TOP TIP: Batch cooking (and heating up in the microwave) is a super-efficient way to cut down on usage. Which is ultimately what you pay for. We’ve found a way for you to do all of your cooking for the week in 2 hours! (tried and tested by the GEL team) Why not give it a try for yourself?
