Does the electric fryer consume a lot of energy per month

Before explaining whether the electric fryer consumes a lot of energy per month and finding out the consumption in kWh.

But also the amount to be paid on the electricity bill, let’s use the example below.

In this case, we will use the example of the AFN-50-BI model from Mondial’s 5L Air Fryer, check it out.

Does the electric fryer consume a lot of energy per month?

The above electric fryer model or Air Fryer is 127V and has an electrical power of 1900 W.

After these instructions above, let’s find out the consumption of an Air Fryer electric fryer, check it out.

How many kWh does an electric fryer consume

According to the manufacturer Mondial, this electric fryer consumes about 1.9 kWh per month.

But it is important to remember that in practice, there are several models.

Each of these models has a different consumption as specified by the manufacturer.

But before finding out how many minutes this electric fryer will be used per day, check out this recommendation below.

Important recommendation

We have already written a comprehensive article explaining how much a refrigerator consumes per month in a residence.

So if you are interested, access the above article to learn more.

Now let’s find out how many minutes per day the electric fryer will be used, check it out below.

How many minutes per day will the electric fryer be used

In the first step, we found out that our electric fryer will consume 1.9 kWh per month.

But in this case, let’s consider that we will use our electric fryer at least once a day.

And let’s consider that it is used for at least 30 minutes per day.

Now we need to determine the number of days this electric fryer will be used for our calculation, check it out below.

How many days per month is the electric fryer used

In the third step, we are trying to find out how much an electric fryer consumes per month in a residence.

Since we are considering a situation where this fryer is used every day.

And also because the electricity consumption at the utility company is generated in the system based on a monthly bill.

So in this case, we are considering a period of 30 days.

In practice, this means that this electric fryer will be used for about 15 hours per month.

Now let’s find out what will be the monthly consumption in kWh of our electric fryer, see below.

What is the monthly consumption of the electric fryer

To find out the monthly consumption of our 5L Mondial Air Fryer electric fryer.

Simply multiply the kilowatt-hour value by the number of hours it will be used in a month, check out the calculation below.

How many kWh does an electric fryer consume per month

The calculation below shows how this simple mathematical operation will look like, check it out.

  • Consumption = 1.9 kWh * 15 hours
  • Consumption = 28.5 kWh per month

In the above calculation, we found out that our 5L Mondial Air Fryer electric fryer with a voltage of 127V and the AFN-50-B model.

When used for 30 minutes per day in a month, will consume about 28.5 kWh.

But before finding out the amount to be paid per month, it is important to check this guidance below.

Guidance on monthly consumption

It is important to remember that the above calculation is just an estimate.

In this case, our Air Fryer may have a lower consumption than calculated above.

This happens because, in practice, it will not always operate at its maximum power.

During its operation, it turns on and off all the time, which reduces the consumption.

Now let’s find out in practice how much this electric fryer consumes per month on the electricity bill.

How much does an electric fryer cost per month

If our Air Fryer electric fryer has a monthly consumption of 28.5 kWh.

In this case, to find out if this electric fryer consumes a lot of energy per month.

Simply multiply the value of the monthly consumption, which is 28.5 kWh, by the value of the kWh in your region.

But then what is the value of the kWh in our region, that’s what we are going to find out now.

What is the value of the kWh in our region

In this case, we are considering that this electric fryer is being used in a residence located in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil.

This means that it will be using the services of Cemig, which is the local electricity provider.

By accessing the Cemig website, we can check the following kWh values for consumers, see below.

Note that in the table above, we can see that the Cemig tariff for March 2023 can vary depending on the type of tariff flag.

Types of tariff flags

In Cemig, the tariff is R$ 0.65313 per kWh for the green flag, or R$ 0.68002 per kWh for the yellow flag.

But if it is the red flag, the consumer will be charged R$ 0.71513 per kWh.

And if it is the red flag 2, the charge will be R$ 0.74808 per kWh.

Finally, the tariff for scarcity of water can be charged at R$ 0.79303 per kWh, in addition to other fees such as public lighting.

After finding out the value of 1 kWh in Cemig, let’s calculate how much it will cost per month.

Calculating how much an electric fryer costs per month

In this case, if we consider a situation where the tariff with the green flag is being used on the electricity bill.

The calculation below shows how this simple mathematical operation will look like, check it out.

  • Cost = 28.5 kWh per month * R$ 0.65313
  • Cost = R$ 18.61

According to the above calculation, we can see that a Cemig consumer would pay approximately R$ 18.61 for electricity per month when using a 5L Mondial Air Fryer electric fryer.
