Which uses less energy- turning the stove on or using the microwave?

    Microwaving small meals consumes less energy than stove-cooking.
    A meal cooked in the microwave on high for 15 minutes will barely burn 1/3 of a kilowatt hour, and it will cost about 5 cents.
    A meal cooked in an electric oven at 325-degrees for 45 minutes will burn nearly 1.4 kilowatt hours and cost about 15 cents. (The stove’s conductin heat, however, lasts longer and is more thorough than the microwave’s induction.)
