Microwaves use too much energy in the kitchen

Fact

The amount of energy used when operating your microwave oven on High is roughly equal to the energy used when operating a single stovetop element. Because microwaves cook foods so quickly, less time and energy is required to get the same results. Remember, the more food in the microwave the longer it will take to cook. If you're doubling a recipe, increase cooking time by one-half and add extra time as required. If you're halving a recipe, reduce microwave cooking time by one-third.
