  • indoors, slow-cooker. it does not effect the temperature of the environment; therefore, the ac/heat does not have to react to it, like it would an oven or stove.

  • A gas stove/oven besides a BBQ.

  • A campfire!! lol. We have a gas oven and use the grill a lot. But I would say a crock-pot as far as electrical appliances go.

  • Slow cooker uses the least, stove top next, and oven uses the most.
