**Microwave**oven

**wattage input or output**. Power consumption is energy consumed by the device from your home power grid. The energy

**output**is actual power emitted by the magnetron in the form of

**microwaves**for heating the food.

Similarly, you may ask, what is the best wattage for a microwave?

A 1,000-watt microwave will cook quickly and efficiently. Microwaves with

**700 watts**or less are slower and may not cook evenly. In general, the higher the wattage, the faster the cooking time.How hot is a 1100 watt microwave?

This would be like an “average” oven temperature of

700 Watts in microwave >> like cooking at

**350 degrees**. For comparison…700 Watts in microwave >> like cooking at

**350 degrees**800 Watts >>**450 degrees**900 Watts >>**525 degrees**(Self clean) 1000 Watts >>**575 degrees**1100 Watts >>**625 degrees**(Blow torch!!)What power level is medium high in the microwave?

If you want to steam something at

**800 watts**and have a 1,000-watt microwave, set the power level to 80 percent, or 8. (Level 9 is 90 percent, and so on. Some microwaves also have shortcut buttons like "medium" and "medium high" that correspond to specific percentages.)
