Abstract: The energy efficiency (hC), carbon footprint (CF) and operating costs (CC) of home dried pasta cooking were assessed. In particular, hC for the electric hot-plate (46±3 %), induction (33±5 %), or LPG (30±4 %) hob was found to be definitively smaller than the minimum energy efficiency performance requirements for EU domestic hobs. Pans of different size, but with the same high thermal diffusivity, had a negligible effect on hC at the probability level of 0.05. By covering the pan with its lid and
