Cooking fuel conservation practices adopted by selected homemakers
Author(s): Vineetha Antony
There are many factors influencing the efficiency of cooking like the phenomenon of heat production, heat utilization, heat transmission and heat rejection during combustion. The basic principle of fuel conservation is to direct maximum heat into the food and allow minimal heat to escape. The fuel efficiency of cooking can be significantly increased with a few simple practices. However a consistent habit of fuel conservation techniques would be very effective even without the use of alternate sources of fuels. The study entitled “Cooking fuel conservation practices adopted by selected homemakers” found that majority of the homemakers were aware of the consequences of fuel shortages but they were not having proper idea about its conservation techniques or less usage. An informational package was developed to provide useful and applicable practices for the homemakers regarding the conservation of fuel.
