Cooking energy and cost rating services

To discuss your needs

Many consumers are considering the cost of cooking food products at home, as well as which appliances and methods may help them to minimise these costs. Our cooking energy and cost rating service offers a step change in the provision of information to consumers about the impact of food product and cooking appliance selection on their household energy bill.

We expect that a move to better inform consumers of the cost of cooking will be of considerable benefit to the consumers themselves, which will in turn benefit the manufacturers and retailers who provide this information about their cooking appliances and food products.

Energy usage and cost can be measured in conjunction with cooking instruction generation, verification and validation trials. We also offer the energy and cost assessments as a standalone service for products with existing, verified instructions.

For the science behind the service and how it was developed, see our white paper.
