Turn down the heat when the food starts to boil, in order to maintain boiling.
Are you in the mood for a cup of hot coffee? Fill the boiler only with the quantity of water necessary for your beverage.
When you cook vegetables, use only enough water to keep vegetables covered.
Boil water with a boiler instead of waiting for water to boil in the pot. It’s quicker and consumes less energy!
Use a saucepan or pot with the right size for your burners and cover it with a lid. This will help it heat quicker and use up less electricity or natural gas.
Purchase a steam cooker or a multi-compartment pot or saucepan to simultaneously cook various vegetables on one single burner.

Use of heat
Turn off the burner or oven for approximately 20 minutes before serving and let residual heat do the rest.
