I was looking at this today, scroll down to page two.  I was quite surprised at how cheap some of the applications are.

I'll try that again!

Some odd values here...

 

Electric oven ..........................................................................................13p per use
Electric hob ............................................................................................11p per use
 
So if I fire up the oven at 200 degrees for one hour (one use) It costs the same as setting 
it to 150 degrees for 20 minutes (one use).
 
Doesn't make sense to me.

Yes, I thought that too, it says that each time you use the gas hob it is 4p, is that just to turn it on?

I'll try that again!

That aside, it's still interesting though.

If you zoom in... LOTS... you can see what  they classify as a use...

 

Electric oven - A rated medium electric oven using 0.8 kWh per use
Electric hob " 0.71 kWh per use

As I cook on wood don't know the cost, or rather have not worked it out. With our heating running on wood and hot water via solar tubes it could be tricky to cost. All I know is we have very low electricity bills!
