Gobble up electric savings this Thanksgiving

Gobble up electric savings this Thanksgiving

November 19, 2020 – Even though COVID-19 will keep us from cooking for family, friends and neighbors, it is likely that you will still be whipping up a delicious feast this Thanksgiving. Despite the smaller crowd of hungry bellies, it is still important to consider your electric usage while you dish out your famous foods. LCEC reminds customer to:

Be smart with your oven use. Cook multiple things at once and resist the urge to peek into the oven. If you can cook some appetizers, dinner and dessert items at once, you can cut down on your electric usage while giving your oven a much-deserved rest. Remember that every time you open your oven, the temperature drops by 25 to 30 degrees in addition to raising the temperature in your kitchen.

Put your microwave to work. Microwaves use half as much electricity as conventional ovens, and cook items in a shorter time. Consider using your microwave to cook smaller items like side dishes, and leave the big dishes for the oven.

Make sure you match up pots and pans to your burners. Using a small pot on a big burner wastes electricity.

Consider using a cooler rather than opening your fridge over and over to get out cold items like drinks. Be sure to give hot food time to cool down before storing them.\

Save time, water and electricity by using your dishwasher to clean your Thanksgiving mess. If possible, scrape food from dishes to prevent the need to pre-rinse. Be sure to fill it completely to get the most bang for your buck!

Happy Thanksgiving from the LCEC family to yours!
