You can use your slow cooker to save money on your power bill. When I use the oven, it heats up the entire house. But when I use the slow cooker, the a/c doesn’t turn on and I don’t start to sweat.
Slow cooker dinners don’t have to be elaborate either. Put some ground beef or turkey in the slow cooker in the morning and by dinner time, you’ll have meat ready for spaghetti, tacos or sloppy joes. Cook chicken breasts in the slow cooker and serve them over rice and topped with salsa. Or chicken drumsticks covered in BBQ sauce cooked in the slow cooker means BBQ chicken by dinner time.
When you use your slow cooker, not only are you making dinner easier on yourself but you are also lowering the cost of your power bill. You avoid heating the house up in the evenings and causing the air conditioning unit to run harder to cool the house back down.
Throwing a meal in the slow cooker in the mornings means that you’ll have dinner ready and waiting in the evenings. This will save you time, energy, and money. Knowing that you have a meal waiting at home will keep you from spending extra going out to eat.
If you don’t already have a slow cooker then look into purchasing one with a timer feature. This will let you set exactly how long you want to cook the meal and once it finishes it will switch over to a warming feature. This is especially great for those that work outside of the home.
