Microwave Oven Electricity Cost Calculator

Microwave ovens are rated in Watts (W) or Kilowatts (kW) if it is a commercial oven. To find out your oven's running cost, look-up the power output (usually found on the back of the machine or in the manual) then use our energy calculator below to see approximately how much it costs to run per minute.
