How Much Electricity Does a Stove Use?

When you are busy cooking your favorite meal, you probably don’t think about how much electricity you are using but maybe you should. Investing in an energy-efficient stove has many advantages, including significant savings on utility costs.

If you are cooking with an electric stove, you may be losing out on some major energy savings.

If you’re having cooktop issues, while you save up, you could consider a cost comparison of having your current appliance fixed, versus just buying whatever you can afford.

Here's some info to help you what you might want to save up for:

Electric Stove Power Consumption

1 1 | Property Contractors 247
Electric stoves draw between 2,000 and 5,000 watts of electricity. The actual amount of electricity use depends on the number of burners you use, whether you use the oven, and how long it takes to finish cooking the meal.

To promote greater energy efficiency, try matching the burner size to the size of the pot or pan you are using. When you use the large burner to heat a small pot or pan, you are wasting much of the heat and energy generated by the burner.

Do Gas Stoves Use Electricity?

Gas stoves have two ignition systems: one that uses a pilot light that always stays lit, and one that uses an electric spark system to ignite the burner. Although an electric igniter uses electricity, it is actually more energy-efficient than a pilot light. And compared to an electric stove, a gas stove’s electric igniter uses a minuscule amount of power.

If you like to cook and entertain, then your kitchen is probably the hub of activity in your home. You deserve an energy-efficient stove that cooks evenly and looks great.
