Question about Emerson MW8985W Microwave Oven
Hi .. Wattage is a measure of power .. it is the voltage a device opperates at multiplied by the amount of amperage it uses. Sometimes called volt- amps. For an example of this, a 200 watt lamp, on a 120 volt circuit, is using about 1.66 amps. That typical circuit is rated for 15 or 20 amps. The rating is determined by the wire size and the breaker protecting the circuit .. so on my lighting circuit I can install about 8 to 10 of these lights and be safely within the limits of the circuit. For a 1000 watt microwave , on a 20 amp kitchen circuit, this means that the microwave is using about half of the capacity of the circuit. You are charged for your use of electricity by a rate times your usage in kilowatt hours, or how many watts you use, times the hours you are using them.
