Cooking and appliances – choose the best!
Achieving energy freedom means saving energy in your home, wherever you can.
Appliances chew up around 10% of an average Australian homes’ electricity use – so it makes sense to get the most efficient appliances you can afford when it comes time to replace your white goods and electrical appliances.
You can compare the energy performance of a wide range of appliances with the Australian government’s Energy Rating website

A fast, energy efficient way of cooking that will free up your time, and your reliance on gas.
Cooking with gas emits waste gases, heats up your kitchen and can be a hazard. Gas cooktops are difficult to clean, and provide less precision and consistency in cooking than other technologies. Ceramic cooktops stack up better, but if you want to go even further in terms of efficiency, precision and consistency, you should consider an induction cooktop.
Induction cooktops operate by using electricity to produce magnetic fields which penetrate the cookware causing it to heat up. The cooktop, however, does not heat up.
If you’re after taking time, gas and hazard out of your cooking, induction cooktops are the way to go.
Induction cooktops are fast. It will take you 2 minutes to boil 1 litre of water, as opposed to 6 minutes with ceramic and 8 minutes with gas.
They are efficient. At 84%, induction cooktops are twice as efficient as using gas.
With 10 or more settings, induction cooktops offer superior precision.
Cooking is more consistent with induction, as heat is distributed more evenly through your pots and pans.
As the cooktop does not heat up, and there is no naked flame involved, induction cooktops are safer than gas and ceramic.
It’s easy to clean your induction cooktop. Just wipe it straight away after use. It won’t be hot and there’ll be no baked spills.
Induction cooktops are easy to install, as they are thin and don’t require gas pipes.
