Almost every recipe I have for baked goods begins with "Preheat Oven." While this may be a time saver, it is not a money saver. Especially if, like me, you have distractions and the ten minutes it should take to prepare the recipe turns into thirty minutes.
Today I waited until after I had prepared my recipe to turn the oven on. While it preheated, I finished cleaning the kitchen. Just as I completed, the oven was ready. I saved about 20 minutes of 'electric'. Over a month's time I believe this will add up significantly since an electric oven is a high electric use appliance.
