Save money with a crock pot

I read a little fact I thought you might be interested in.  We all know we can save time and effort with a crock pot, but who knew you could save so much money?

Running a crock pot costs about $0.21 for 10 hours.
Running an electric oven costs about $2.51 for 2 hours..... yes, only two!
If you used your crock pot every day, that would be $76.65 a year.
If you used your oven for 2 hours every day, that would be $916.15 a year.

You could save $839.50 a year!  That could be a frugal beach vacation for two!!

Not to mention, who wants to run the oven in the heat of summer?  And with non-stick spray or crock pot liners, clean up is so easy.

Next post: how to adapt your recipes to the crock pot, and other tips for cooking with it.

Until next time.... He who tends to  a fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who looks after his master will be honored.  Proverbs 27:18
