The cooking appliances and equipment in the households of the United Kingdom have been found to be the highly responsible appliances for the energy and electricity consumption in the UK domestic sectors. The stress about the today’s electrical infrastructure is affected by the use time of the electrical cooking appliances. Thus, it is essential to know when these appliances are used and the factors that result in the variation of the use of these appliances. However, there is very less information available about the time of cooking appliances use. The present study has included the time of use for the five major cooking appliances (electrical cooker, electrical pressure cooker, electrical frying pan, electrical rice cooker and the electrical food steamer)and other appliances during both the summers and the winters. These appliances are explained as independent variables by analysing the data collected from 381 respondents from the United Kingdom. The demographic factors investigated in the present study are the ones with a possible significant effect on the time of usage of the specific cooking appliances.
