How to Save LPG While Cooking

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) sees its price rising day by day and people are looking for ways to ensure that the cylinders last longer. There are many ways you can save gas and also save your money. Here are a few ways you can save LPG while cooking:

    A lot of people use the stove for drying their utensils when small water drops are at the bottom. This wastes a lot of gas. You should dry them with a towel and use the stove only for cooking.

  • Track Leaks

    Make sure you check all burners, pipes, and regulators in your kitchen for leaks. Even small leaks that go unnoticed can waste a lot of gas and is dangerous as well.

    When you cook, use a plate to cover the pan in which you cook so that it cooks faster and you do not have to use much gas. It makes sure that the steam remains in the pan.

    Do not switch on the gas and search for your ingredients while you are cooking. T8his wastes a lot of gas.

  • Soak Your Foods

    When you cook rice, grains, and lentils, soak them first so that they soften a bit and the cooking time is reduced.
