Recipe’s often require you to know the wattage of your microwave, which you probably don’t know. Here are some ways to find it:
- Bring it in to Genius Bar.
- Ask a friend who you know has a similar box-shaped microwave.
- The first step is to measure the ratio between your hand-size and face. Put your hand up next to your face and .. ha! got you..
- Previous users may have left an ‘artifact’. Look for Sharpie scrawlings or a post-it note inside.
- You can at least learn all you want about punk bassit Mike Watt at mikewatt.com
- Check inside your shoes. Your mother may have put a note with your microwave’s wattage along with a $20 bill for your trip into the city.
- Cook an egg for 3 minutes. If it’s still runny, the wattage is pretty low.
- Purchase a new microwave and this time, keep the manual handy.
- It will come to you in a dream.
- Fill your microwave with soapy water and look for air bubbles. That will reveal the leak.
- Multiply Amps times Voltage
