Q's Daily DIY Green Tips: Coil Coverage is Key
Your air conditioner or refrigerator coils are not the only coils that are important. When cooking with an electric range, be sure to match your actual pan size to the heating coil you are using. A pan too small for the coil results in lost energy around the edge of the pan. Most electric ranges have multiple coils of different sizes to accommodate different sized cook-ware. Use less energy and make sure you've placed your pan on the right one.
