Factors Influencing Energy Consumption:

  1. Cooking Duration: Slow cookers are designed for long cooking times, often running for 6 to 8 hours, but their low wattage keeps energy usage minimal.
  2. Heat Settings: Most slow cookers have low, medium, and high settings. Higher settings use more energy but still remain efficient compared to conventional ovens.
  3. Size and Model: Larger slow cookers may consume slightly more power, but the difference is typically minimal. Energy-efficient models can help reduce consumption further.

Slow cookers offer a convenient and energy-saving way to prepare delicious meals without the need for constant attention.
