What Brand of Electric Range Uses the Least Energy?


Electric ranges have no federal energy regulations, so they do not have energy guide labels or Energy Star recommendations. The type of stove and cooking element dictate the energy efficiency of cooking more than a particular brand. Gas stoves and ovens use about half of the energy as their counterparts.

Conventional coil elements are the standard for electric stoves, with several new types of burners available. Solid disk elements and radiant elements under glass are the easiest to clean, but the least energy-efficient. Halogen ranges that use a bulb under glass and induction element stoves that use

electromagnetic waves are the most energy-efficient electric ranges. However, both require cookware meeting specific guidelines to function properly.
