    Energy Cost of a bread machine

    Energy Cost of a bread machine 5th Dec 06 at 3:25 PM
    Hi all,

    I've been monitoring the cost of my bread machine's electricity
    (Panasonic SD253).

    Overall it costs about 1 p an hour to run: slightly less for just the dough programme and slightly more when it's baking. So 1 p an hour is a good approximation.

    Ingredients for a 400g wholemeal loaf were 32p, so with 6 p for electricity, round up to 40p.

    I would expect other breadmakers to be in the same ballpark.

    Which conclusively proves that using a breadmaker is cheaper than any but the most cheapo and nasty bread.
