Did you know that your kitchen accounts for 15% of your home energy use?  I was shocked when I learned that.  From cooking to clean up, kitchen appliances use quite a bit of energy and we see it every month in our utility bills.

One way you can lower your energy use is by using smaller, more efficient appliances – like microwaves and slow cookers.  Plus, these smaller appliances will help you save time, too!

My slow cooker is one of my most used small appliances which is why I have so many easy slow cooker recipes. It uses a lot less energy than my stove or over and, because it’s smaller, clean up is super easy (and uses less hot water).

Saving energy can be quick, easy and convenient and you don’t have to sacrifice the quality of your family’s meals. Many of the recipes in this collection are healthy slow cooker recipes that you and you’re family will definitely love. Here are 30 days of the best slow cooker recipes!

Efficient Cooking Tips

  • Use small electric pans, toaster ovens or convection ovens for small meals rather than your regular oven or stove.  These smaller appliances can use one-third to one-half as much energy.
  • Use microwaves and slow cookers when possible.  They also use less energy than your stove or oven.
  • Keep the inside of your microwave and oven clean.  It helps improve their efficiency.
  • Use your dishwasher only when it’s full.  According to the Dept of Energy, you can save 5,000 gallons of water each year and $40 in utility costs by using a dishwasher as opposed to hand-washing.
  • Use the air-dry option on your dishwasher.  It saves energy and keeps the machine from using a heating element to bake your dishes dry.

  1. I don’t know what I’d do without my slow cookers. Now, I just have to get more creative with them. Looks like you’ve got that covered, so I’m putting some of these on my next meal plan. Thanks!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing these recipes. I need to add more crockpot recipes because of my work schedule, so these will give me some great ideas!

  3. I am such a fan of my slow cooker(s). They are such a big help. I have a 6 quart, a 4 quart, and a dip sized slow cooker. I need a big one now. ๐Ÿ˜€
