Ha, I know you look at that title and you're thinking she's gonna talk about Kistler Vineyards again, but nope. No toasting going on here with expensive vintages. I'd like to discuss the toaster, that thing that sits in the corner on your countertop, which you may barely recognize since you're always grabbing those giant muffins at Starbucks instead of enjoying breakfast at home.
Other people like me, not necessarily YOU, per se, use a toaster about 4 minutes a day. That equals 3 kilowatt hours a month. If you live in Sacramento and pay regular SMUD rates in the summer, that toaster probably costs you 39 cents a month to run. However, if you live in Hawaii, you can expect to pay about $1.20.
You can read more about this in my personal blog today at this link: How Much it Costs to Run Appliances in Your Home.
