Lower energy use when cooking by using pot lids.

Apr 05, 2023

Putting the lid on pots when cooking saves substantial energy compared to one without a lid. Pot lids act as a seal to trap heat and steam inside the pot, reducing the amount of heat lost. This means that the burner doesn't need to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature inside the pot.

Not only does this help to cook the food faster, it can also reduce those pesky pasta sauce splatters and prevent your kitchen from getting too humid, reducing your reliance on an extractor fan.
