In The Kitchen - Microwave
By keeping your microwave as clean as possible, you can maximize its energy efficiency. When your microwave is running at its best it uses less electricity (which of course saves you money) and even heats food faster. When it comes to energy efficiency, microwaves have traditional electric ovens beat by 3.5 to 4.8 times. In other words, if it costs ten cents to cook a certain item in a microwave, it would cost 48 cents to cook that same item in a regular oven, so the substantial savings in energy could be quite significant. For instance, if everyone living in North America opted to use their microwave exclusively for one year, we’d save about as much energy as the entire continent of Africa uses in the same time period. While this is an extreme and unlikely scenario, it illustrates the contrast between the amounts of energy used by a microwave vs. an electric oven, and the potential for conservation.
