Summer is about to end and so are the family BBQ’s at your house. The warmer weather brought back the backyard fun, with cold drinks, and good food. You’re having friends over this weekend for the final BBQ and you need to whip up your famous buffalo chicken dip. You can’t decide between preparing the delicious dip in the slow cooker or in the oven. To help make the decision easier, we looked at how much energy each appliance typically uses.
Let’s look at wattage.
Slow Cooker = 250 Watts < Oven = 3,000 Watts
We suggest making your famous dip in the slow cooker as it will use less energy than the oven. Your family will thank you, especially when you keep it hot by serving it in the slow cooker on the “warm” setting!
