Question about GE JES735WJ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave oven wattage question

I have a GE model JES735WJ02 everywhere I go for info on this microwave online, it says the microwave is 700 watts, but on the inside on the microwave it reads "0,95 kW" so isn't that equal to 950 watts...can anyone explain where the discrepancy might be coming from, did I calculate the wattage right? it says on the inside of it that it was manufactured in 2007...

says it here: http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&rlz=1I7ACAW_enUS385US385&q=ge+jes735wj&um=1&ie=UTF-8&cid=12072233194942298990&ei=o8M4TM-FMYT58AaazbCnBg&sa=X&oi=product_catalog_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CC4Q8wIwAg# and here:

Hi, you are correct it is 950 watts as you have read this on the microwave itself, when they sold these they kept the same model number but as they bought newer ones out the wattage increased so they kept the same number so its nothing to worry about it was just yours must have been a newer model then the first ones they made.

the first ones they made started at 700 then they did an 850 then a 950 so you are right its just a case of giving the same model number as the only difference is the wattage everything else is exactly the same, you wouldnt tell the difference if you had them side by side as its only the wattage that changed on this model

    Electrical input power is not the same as output (microwave) power. It depends on the efficiency of the unit.

    What is frustrating is that many recipes give alternate cooking times for microwaves of different wattage ratings, yet the microwave manufacturers don't post this info on the nameplate by the oven door.

I want to know how many watts my 2002 jvm1430bd002 microwave has...I have googled this question and have answers ranging from 700 to 1200! what gives???


Conduct what the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service calls a "Time-to-Boil" test, which will help you estimate your microwave's wattage. Add 1 cup of water to a microwave-safe 2-cup measure. Add ice cubes and stir until the water is icy cold. Pour out the excess water, leaving just 1 cup. Place the measuring cup inside the microwave. Set the oven for four minutes on high. Watch through the glass to see when the water boils. If it takes less than two minutes, the microwave is 1,000 watts or more; if it takes 2.5 minutes, the oven has a rating of 800 watts or more; if it boils in 3 minutes, the estimated wattage is 650 to 700.
