If you cook regularly, you can save money by implementing some of these tips:
· Use the kettle to boil water for cooking, instead of heating a pan on the stove. Not only will this be more efficient, but it generally takes less time too
· Covering cooking pans while cooking to prevent heat loss
· Covering the cooker hob with the pan base, if you can see some hob, you're wasting energy
· Use less liquid, things cook quicker that way
· Reheating left-overs in the microwave or on a hob, not in the oven
· Use a pressure cooker if you have one
· Cook 'one pot' meals like stews or soups
