Question about Microwave Ovens
Microwaves can use a lot of amps. By law all over the range micros are supposed to be put on a dedicated 20 am circuit. That means nothing else is on the circuit but the microwave.
While your plug in micros won't generate as much amperage usage as the over the range types, your business will generate a lot of usage during peak times. It would be best if you had some on a separate circuit.
Eventually, especially if all run at the same time, you are asking for trouble. At the very least you will cause damage to the micros. At the worst you can burn some out.
Consider placing two in different places in your cafeteria, and you can still put them on surge protectors. But the amount of money you will save by turning them off for the night will be negligible.
Worry more about too many amps on one circuit.
