    Cost of running the Oven 22nd Sep 06 at 10:05 PM
    I wonder does anyone know how much it costs to run an electric fan assisted oven? I find that my oven is on for hours each day because DD1 has just started 6th form and comes home for lunch every day and insists on making hot food (I have tried to tell her but it isn't easy....) Also I am out some of the times and nearly always she leaves the oven on when she goes back to school I also find that I make alot of jacket potatoes, oven chips, casseroles and the like and I also cook chops and sausages in the oven. I just had an electric bill for 154 for the last quarter and I think this is so high because of the oven usage (we have gas ch and water and that bill was only 15) I was thinking of getting a combination microwave and convection oven but don't know if that would just be a waste of money as I've heard that they aren't any good. Can anyone give me any tips?
