The Kitchen: Oven, Stove, and Cookware
We have a lot more choices when cooking now than our parents ever did. The equipment is more energy efficient too.
Choosing the right pan for the job can actually save energy--small amounts per meal, maybe, but they add up.
You don't have to relearn how to do everything from making a souffle to boiling water to make some easy energy-saving changes in the kitchen.
You can save energy simply by getting in the habit of cooking with the most efficient appliance possible for the food you are preparing.

You have similar efficiency issues to consider whether you are looking at a standard kitchen range or choosing a separate cook-top.
