Cooking gas is one of these kitchen equipment where the cost of refilling has recently been quite expensive. As a result, many people have been looking for ways to make their cooking gas last longer in order to save money, and if you are one of these people, you have come to the right place because the tips and ideas listed below can help you make your cooking gas last longer after refilling, saving you a lot of money.

1) Always Cook On A Low Heat:


Many people make the error of cooking on a high flame to speed up the cooking process; however, this is a waste of time since the gas escapes too quickly during this type of cooking, leaving little influence on the cooking pace. Cooking on a low burner is ideal since it saves gas, money, and ensures that your food is thoroughly cooked.

2) Cooking With Pots With Low Heat Conductivity:

Not all cooking components are created equal in terms of the materials used in their manufacture, which is why some pots are considerably heavier and thicker than others. When compared to other light stainless steel pots, some of these significantly heavier and thicker pots are built using materials that conduct less heat at a given period. Because these low heat-conducting pots take a long time to cook, avoiding them will make your gas last longer.

3). Allow All Frozen Foods To Thaw Before Cooking On Gas:

To save time, it’s preferable to let frozen foods defrost on their own before cooking on gas, since doing so would lengthen the cooking time and result in wasteful gas use.


4. Regularly maintain and service your gas tank and stove:

To ensure safety and to maximize your cooking gas, regularly check and service the regulator as well as check the pipes or hoses for blockages and leaks. To avoid wastage, always make sure that the regulator is switched off after cooking.

5. Keep your cooking pots outer surfaces clean and shining:

Uncleaned, black and soot-stained outer cooking pot surface will reduce the ability of the pot to conduct heat. This will prolong cooking and burn more gas.
