LPG Conservation

Save for the future generation
  • Use only high efficiency ISI marked gas stove. You can save up to 25% of cooking gas. 
  •  Keep all ingredients required for cooking ready before lighting the stove, and avoid idle flame and thus save gas.
  •  Use optimum quantity of water, as surplus water consumes up to 65% additional fuel. 
  • Reduce the flame when boiling starts as a low flame is enough to sustain the required heat. It saves up to 35% of fuel. 
  • Soak dal, rice etc. before cooking as unsoaked cereals require more time for cooking. 
  • Do not use narrow vessels as they allow the flame to creep up on the sides.
  • Use only broad bottomed vessels. 
  • When you have time to spare, use only the small burner in gas stove as it consumes 6% to 10% lesser fuel. 
  • A bright, steady blue flame means efficient burning. To get bright blue flame, regularly clean the burner of gas stove. 
  • Very cold food consumes a large amount of fuel. So keep frozen meat etc., out of the fridge for some time before putting them on the stove. 
  • If you have to stop cooking for a short while, please switch off the gas. After all, it's cheaper to light another match.
  • Match the burner to the vessel. Use a small vessel on a small burner. A large burner consumes 15 percent more gas.
  • Cover the vessel with a lid while cooking. The lid prevents the steam from escaping which means fast cooking. It also helps retain the aroma of the food.
  • The family that eats together saves gas. If you have to heat food just once, it means less waste. Re-heated food is also less nutritious.
