Step into just about any modern kitchen and you’ll find a collection of small appliances from toasters to blenders, food processors and more. They’re convenient and easy to use, and since they only run for a short time, we don’t tend to think of them as an energy drain. But, that’s where we could be wrong. Take a look at your small appliances, usually the watt output should be listed on the appliance or its cord. If not, it’s on the original box (if you still have that).
