Going Green In The Kitchen
(NAPSA) - If you want a greener, more energy-efficient home, start by considering a change in how you cook.
Slow cook your food. If just 10 percent of American homes replaced one oven-cooked meal per week with a slow cooker meal, the energy saved each year would add up to 900 million kilowatt hours, according to the California Energy Commission. In fact, slow cookers use only about one-fourth the energy that cooking the same dish in an electric oven for one hour would use.
Slow cookers don't heat up your kitchen and help time-pressed families get a meal on the table quickly in the evening. For even more time savings, use a slow cooker liner from Reynolds for quick, easy cleanup.
