Microwave lower energy quest
Well here I go again, in an attempt to lower my solar energy use. I tried looking for a small wattage microwave today. I found a 900 Watt Rival with adjustable power settings that I thought I could set on lower power for late night microwaving on battery. I knew there would a starting surge but couldn't believe the surge on the Kill-A-Watt at 20% power setting of 2150Watts, I'm not going to abuse my batteries. Anyone have a brand or size that has acceptable surge/running wattage? For now, we returned this microwave, and none of the other microwaves had any lower nameplate ratings. This microwave of 900 Watts had a nameplate of 1350Watts,that would have been acceptable starting surge. There was also a Rival 700W, but kind of figured it might prove to have similar surge issues. No display model to was available to look at. Suggestions.....ideas?
