The microwave oven is your kitchen's energy champ
Energy goes straight to heating the food, not to the pan or open air around it.

Not only is it fast, but your microwave is the kitchen's undisputed efficiency champ. That's because its energy goes straight into heating the food, not the air or a pan which surrounds it.
This is good news if you're keeping a close eye on that power bill during warm weather months. Invest in a microwave cookbook and make sure you have a good selection of microwave-safe casseroles and dishes. Combination convection/microwave are an even better idea.
Save money while keeping cool in the kitchen!
