Use a bigger pan than the coil
The coil is the source of heat. If the coil is bigger than the pan, there is a chance than hit will escape from the bottom and thus it will take more time to cook. Precious heat and gas would be wasted. We can not afford to waste the energy now. So use a bigger pan than the coil and don’t let the energy escape.
Use cover while you cook
It is another important strategy. You should always use the covers while you do the cooking. Covers will not let necessary heat escape and you can finish the cooking with lesser heat than the normal cooking.
One pot cooking
Try cooking it all in all pot. Soup, stew and other peasant meals are a good choice for applying the energy efficiency. You can also prepare a meal in the same time. This method is not very much effective. So do not try it if you do not like it. I am not fond of it either but it sure saves a lot of energy.
Turn off the burner
Just before the meal is finished cooking, turn the burner off immediately. Just let it cook in its own heat. This will save a lot of energy. Although, you will need to get the timing correct. Otherwise, your food will remain undercooked.
