Microwave Oven (in use)

“Microwave Oven (in use)” is the amount of time that you are operating your microwave. For example, if you use a microwave for 15 minutes every day, please enter “15” in the first field and select “minutes/day” in the second field. Your cost per month and cost per year will be automatically calculated.

Most microwave ovens are equipped with a clock, and continue to use energy when they are not “in use.” To calculate this cost, please use the “Microwave Oven (stand-by)” section.
