Using the right hob for the right pan can save you money on your gas bills

Tip created over a year ago.

A great energy saving tip for households and one that could save you money on your gas bill is to try and use the right gas hob when using a pan.

Using the correct size hob for the correct size pan can save more energy. If the gas burner is bigger than the pan then the gas flames will just end up around the side of the pan, and you are just wasting gas and heat. So pick the right burner for the right pan.

Another tip for using a pan is to always use a lid when bringing it up to the boil. It is much quicker and saves on gas.

Saving time and energy can go along way when cooking to try and be as energy efficient as you can to energy and your money, giving you a cheaper gas bill.
