Using pans that fit the stove burners properly are more energy efficient. If you cook with gas, never allow the flames to lick up the outsides of the pan. You may think that your meal will cook faster but you are just wasting energy. The ideal height for maximum heating is to allow the burner flame to just cover the bottom of the pan. You will be surprised at how much less energy you need to cook.
