How to Save Energy in Your Kitchen : Select Right size Rice Cooker



Do you aware that electric rice cooker is the second largest power consumption in our kitchen ?

Do you ever bother to check rice cooker name plate? Are you using  correct size electric rice cooker to prepare for 1-4 people meal daily?

Today, cost living in Malaysia is getting expensive and most of the household ladies begin to shift from eating out to home cooking dining for their family in order to cope the reduction of disposable income.

Smart kitchen lady is one of the key person at home to save energy and electricity bill.

Take a good example for typical small size family to serve 2-4 person meal daily.


Which size of rice cooker you will choose?
 

1.0 Litre Rice Cooker rated at 450W 
A typical rice cooking  time about 15 Minutes to 30 Minutes depend the types of rices, water content and number of servicing.
Let say smart kitchen lady cooking for two meals per day and each time last for  30 minutes,

30min/60min x 2 times x 0.45kw  x RM0.40 (Electricity Tariff) x 30 days =RM5.40 Per month 




How much this family will spend if using the bigger size rice cooker with same amount of servicing?

1.8 Litre Rice Cooker rated at 832W


30min/60min x 2 times x 0.832kw  x RM0.40 (Electricity Tariff) x 30 days =RM10.00 Per month



Conclusion:
1 litre Rice cooker is good enough to serve meal for 2-4 person daily. So, why waste energy  and  use big rice cooker to cook small amount of rice?

Bigger size of rice cooker not doubt will consume more power consumption. In this example, 1.8 Litre Rice cooker consumes almost double electricity compared to 1 Litre Rice cooker.

Time for all kitchen ladies changing their mind now. Big is not always good in this case :-)

Saving of RM60 per year in your electricity bill will give a boost in your home saving fund.
