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.
