Energy Efficiency and Microwaves

Microwaves are energy efficient by design.

Typically, 1000-watt microwave ovens cost as little as 25 cents a day to run, while more heavy duty 3000-watt microwave costs around 73 cents a day with average commercial foodservice use.

These numbers are estimated with 100 cook cycles of 60 seconds a day at $.10 kWh.

In addition, microwave steamers are considered greener than traditional steam equipment.
