Means of cooking

I have a gas hob, electric grill, electric oven and a microwave. Which is the most economical way of cooking, and would a slow cooker be cheap to run?

Lindsey, Food Editor

For Alison

Hello Alison,

This is a difficult question. It’s certain that modern appliances are significantly more energy efficient than older ones.

Generally I would use a hob or a grill rather that pre-heat and oven where possible.

A slow cooker is as I understand it an efficient way of long slow cooking. I read this article in the Telegraph, which you may find interesting.

Best wishes
