Everhot Running Costs

What will it cost to run?

There's no absloute, definitive answer - we're happy to provide a guide (see below) but it all depends on what temperatures you run the ovens and hotplates at (they're all individually controlled and can be set however you choose), whether or not you use 'ECO' mode (and the ECO settings if you do) and of course the cost of your electricity.


Mine at home costs, on average, £0.99 per day in summer, £1.79 in spring / autumn and £2.05 in winter. (See the case study below for the settings, usage and consumption information.)


The model of Everhot will make a difference too - it stands to reason that the bigger cookers will use a little more fuel than the smaller ones (although not quite as much difference as you would have thought), and the 'Plus' models (with extra cast-iron hotplates) emit more heat so use a little more fuel than the equivalent model with an induction hob.

- See below for a case study we've carried out at home.

Approximate Weekly Energy Consumption for Everhot Cookers


July 2024 Price Cap - **NOTE**: Since fuel costs are quite volatile at the moment, for an up to date costing please use the fuel consumption figures in the table, and then refer to your supplier's bill for the current price you're paying per kWh of fuel.
(Multiply price x consumption for the weekly figure.)

Case Study - Everhot 100 Plus

We fitted a home energy consumption monitor to our consumer unit. It measures total energy consumption for the house and some individual circuits. Since the Everhot is on its own circuit we can see how much electricity it's using.


Headline Costs
Summer: £0.99/day
Spring / Autumn: £1.79/day
Winter: £2.05/day
[Energy prices at July 2024, £0.224 per kWh].


We can't guarantee that the readings are 100 percent accurate (the energy monitor is not calibrated, and we're not in laboratory conditions) but it should be close.


Some notes on how we use our Everhot (100 Plus):

The figures should be comparable, if not the same, for 60, 90 and 100 models, and very likely the 110i, 120i and 150i too.


ECO mode is in use all year round, and at the same times every day (it's just the lower ECO temperatures that get changed for the seasons).


Normal cooking temperatures don't change much and the top oven only gets altered a couple of times a week.


The bottom oven is used as a plate-warmer at 50 C most of the time; it only gets turned up when needed for entertaining or big batch-cooking days.


An induction hob is used instead of the hotplate in summer. Both hotplates are set to 35 C when not in use - this stops moisture settling on them and keeps them clean. (And the right-hand hotplate is never used - should have bought the 100i, but that's another story!)


Normal Cooking Temperatures
Hotplate 300 C
Top oven 80 C Reheating batch-cooked frozen meals
200 C Normal day-to-day use
240 C Pizza, bread baking, big roasts
Bottom oven 50 C
RH Simmer Plate 35 C


ECO Temperatures
  Winter Spring / Autumn Summer
Hotplate 200 C 100 C 35 C
Top Oven 80 C
Bottom Oven 50 C
RH Simmer Plate 35 C

ECO times (Same every day)

ECO mode comes on at 10pm. (The cooker then goes to its lower temperatures.)


ECO mode goes off at 12noon and the hotplate heats up (takes about 15-20mins), the ovens are set to 'delay' for 4 hours and start heating at 4pm; they take about an hour and a half to heat to 200C.)


Energy Consumption and Cost (Per Day at £0.27 per kWh)
  Winter Spring / Autumn Summer
ECO all day 5.74 kWh £1.28 2.92 kWh £0.65 2.06 kWh £0.46
Top Oven 80 C 7.14 kWh £1.60 6.50 kWh £1.45 2.36 kWh £0.53
Top Oven 200 C 9.16 kWh £2.05 7.98 kWh £1.79 4.44 kWh £0.99
Top Oven 240 C 10.69 kWh £2.39 8.33 kWh £1.86 5.11 kWh £1.14

Summary

Using ECO mode and allowing the cooker to heat and cool WILL SAVE MONEY.

The full-power 'heating up' consumption is largely offset by the zero-power cooling period and the time in between (at a lower temperature) uses less energy so you will save by using ECO.


In short - it's the average temperature that matters - the higher the temperature over any given time period the more energy will be consumed and the more it will cost to run.
