How to prepare for a power cut
02 December 2022
Pre-plan your food
If you’ve been given forewarning that a power cut is coming, try and plan what food you’ll need during the shortage. Food items that don’t require warming are always a smart choice - even if you have a gas oven or hob, no one wants to cook in the dark.
Consider the content of your freezer. Although many freezers can store your frozen goods for hours if left unopened, if your shortage lasts longer than typical power cuts, you could be left with spoilt food. If you’re lucky enough to be given a heads-up, take this opportunity to review your freezer’s content. Streamlining your freezer could prevent wastage, saving you the expensive task of replacing items.
Power cuts can be a nightmare, but with foreplanning, you can make the process pass easier.
