            What makes an appliance eco-friendly?

            Clever cooking

            • Invest in induction

              The electromagnetic tech used for induction cooking cuts down energy waste, as it heats pans directly. Stir-frying this way uses up to 17 per cent less energy.
            • Double-up dishes

              The two zones in split-cavity ovens save energy by cooking dishes at two temperatures in one unit, while a small meal can be cooked by powering one zone.
            • Number one fan

              To reduce your bills by up to £20 a year, switch from conventional to fan cooking, which recirculates heated air inside the oven to keep a temperature consistent.
            • Save on speedy dinners

              By microwaving meals, you can cut costs as well as cooking time. Using one to heat your weekly jacket potato could save up to £30 a year on your electric bill.
