The kitchen at home is one of the “black spots” in the home in terms of energy consumption. In this small or large room, depending on the case, are grouped some of the most gluttonous elements when it comes to electricity it means.
There are the ceramic hob, the oven, the microwave, the thermos, the washing machine, the dryer and even the toaster. But along with them, there are other elements that have nothing to do with it. Are household appliances that spend very little and Endesa details what they are.
spending very little
According to the energy company, in the kitchen there are three elements that are large consumers of energy. There are the refrigerator, the washing machine and the oven, which take up different amounts of energy consumed. On average, the washing machine “eats up” almost a third of consumption, while the washing machine takes 11.8% and the oven 8.3%. We are talking about the total consumption of household appliances.
But along with them, there are others household appliances that happen to consume very little energy. Present in kitchens to a greater or lesser extent, according to Endesa they represent a very small percentage of energy consumption.
the yogurt maker It is one of the household appliances that consume little. Intended to make our own yogurts, this appliance was very popular in the 80s and made a strong comeback in many homes during the pandemic. According to Endesa, it is the third that consumes the least. An 18-watt yogurt maker, used once a week, generates a consumption of 0.5 kWh.
The second on the list is more common in many homes. It’s about a electric juicerthat small device that we use to prepare juices and thus avoid the robbery that in many cases means asking for a fresh orange juice on the street.
Leaving aside the bag of oranges stored at home, an electric juicer uses very little energy. According to energetics, a model with a power of 150 W, would generate an expense of 0.4 kWh per month preparing a juice every day. It is second on the list.
And on the podium, standing tall as the least expensive appliance in the kitchen is the coffee grinder. Although it can be used to grind or grind various types of food or ingredients, coffee is the protagonist and allows you to grind coffee beans, allowing you to adjust the grind according to personal preference to prepare fresh and aromatic coffee.
The electric model is the evolution of manual grinders and continues to be the winner in terms of consumption. An electric grinder 180W consume only 0.03 kWh grinding coffee once a week.
As you can see, these three small appliances, which you may have at home, consume very little energy compared to other appliances with which they share space in the kitchen. And do not look for large devices, since to be gluttonous and consume electricity size does not matter and if not, tell the toaster or the sandwich maker.
