Interesting fact from my utility company: To heat an ordinary electric oven costs 32 cents per hour.
Shocking fact from my utility company: The average person spends $1.65 per month to use their gas stovetop.
How can that be? So cheap. I ran a calculation based on the specifications of my particular stove and the price of energy in our area and it turns out that it really IS cheap. Though my math and logic are always questionable, it appears that it costs me 14 cents an hour to cook something at high heat (boiling pasta) and 9 cents an hour to melt butter. To make the clotted cream, therefore: 36 cents of gas.
Back to work.
