Question about Electric Grills & Sandwich Makers
I have 2 Geroge Foreman Grills: the GR315B and the GR7BW. Are either of these grills energy efficient? I ask because there has been a noticeable increase in my eletric bill since I started using them.
I use the GR315B most often.
Well, a good rule of thumb is if you use Electricity to change the temperature of something, it will use more electricity than say a light bulb, monitor, tv, radio etc.
Some Energy Hogging items are things like:
Microwave oven converts electricity to Heat things.
A/C unit, converts electricity to Cool
Toaster, hair dryer, Electric grills, electric heaters, etc.
The easiest thing to do, is to look at the bottom of the Grill, and look for the Watt usage. IM pretty sure it will be close if not over 1000 Watts. I have a small GF grill and it is rated at 750 Watts.
To give you an idea of how much electricity it is using, thing of a 100 watt light bulb and compare the grill to that.
If the grill uses 1000W, then it is like leaving on TEN 100 Watt light bulbs for the length of time you leave the grill plugged in.
The key thing would be to make sure you unplug the unit as soon as you are done. Leaving it plugged in and running for say another 5-10 minutes while you take your food to the table, will use that much more electricity.
I hope this helps.
If I have answered your question, please remember to leave a feedback and a rating for me.
Thanks and good luck.
