Well, I will let you in on a secret to using electric ovens.I have never used an electric oven, so far I've used only a gas one, and let me tell you so far I have more complaints. Gas is cheaper and more efficient in my opinion. Sadly in the new house we only have an electric one, but I don't plan to cook anything in it anytime soon, I don't want to end up with a big bill...
Thank you I was actually kind of depressed about that, because I really wanted to bake something in the new house for my husband But I was like: ''Oh yeah, I forgot that thing is electric''. Thanks, I will try to make it count and plan the baking session of the month well.Well, I will let you in on a secret to using electric ovens.
If you are going to use it, make it count! Bake a LOT of stuff at once, don't just stick a casserole or something in there. Bake bread, casserole, a chicken, a pie, and whatever else will fit in there! Cram that sucker with anything you want to bake. If you bake once a month like this, then your electric bill wont be "hit" that hard.
It does make a difference to some. If I use my oven to bake one item for 45 minutes to an hour, it add's $20 to my electric bill. Same thing if I use the dishwasher, which I never do. If I use the dishwasher once, even on light/short cycle, it add's $10 to my electric bill.it won't make that big of a difference in your electric bill trellum,,I don't worry about it at all,especially when the temperature outside is cool or cold,i think it helps cut down on the electric furnace running then
I live in the Dallas, Texas area.oooh I didn't realize it was that expensive,where are you at ? I'm in East Tennessee in the States,I do most of my everyday baking in a toaster oven,instead of using the big one,come to think of it,I need another one of those too,mine will barely make toast anymore,it was a freebie from a friend years ago and it was well used before I got it,it has to be around 15 to 20 years old
now you make me want to buy another cake pan,since I only have the one lol
that sounds more like what I need, will it do a pone of cornbread in a cast Iron skillet ? or a 2 quart casserole dish ? I could save some money with one of those,other than I have absolutely no counter space,this one is sitting on top of the micro wave now
