We have an Hamilton Beach microwave oven. It has 900 watts. How many watts does your microwave oven has? And have you ever had a Sunbeam microwave. Sunbeam would be the name brand for the microwave oven.

I have no idea how many watts our microwave is, I asked my husband he doesn't know either, its older than dirt, I think its a Panasonic, that tells you how old it is, I don't even think they make that brand anymore, it still works good tho. I've never had a Sunbeam microwave, we do have a Sunbeam coffee maker.

Hi, walijo2008. I have seen a Panasonic microwave. I only thought that only electronics are made only from the manufacturer of Panasonic.. I guess I had a lot to learn on that. I miss my Sunbeam microwave. It worked really great for me.

Ok this is a great thing to dicuss but really I have no idea how many watts mine has. See I got my from my Grandmother about 3 years ago and I never asked her what the watts were. I know it is a Samsung and is pretty nice and I know she always buys brand new so my guess would be at least a 1,000 watts but I could be wrong. Now here is my question how would I know? I mean she gave it to me without the manual so how would I be able to find out? Let me know and happy mylotting to you.

Hi, mom... Maybe you can look on the inside of the microwave and see if the watts amount is printed by the UL tag. I know that our watts amount is at the top of the inside of the microwave. If you can't find it, then look for a serial number. There should be something that can help you to identify the watts amount. I hope that this helps you.

they're actually pretty reliable..we've had this one for years with only a fuse change. ..something they don't tell you about.often when they die,that's all it is.one simple fuse.

Yes, you are right! One simple fuse! This brand is very reliable. No wonder companies rely on this microwave to meet its standards for the workforce.

Hi cream 97 my almost new microwave is in storage, sad to say, and its a sam sung, like my monitor. Ifeel so bad that we have not got an apartment yet so I could once more use it. It is at least 900 watts and is so nice. I miss it so much as I could do so many things with it. It was, ironically, a gift from the same internet friend of my son's who let us down and reneged on her offer to stake us to three months rent on an apartment in Antioch California so my son could get a job and get us back on our feet. anyway it is really a nice microwave. I do have a sunbeam electric toaster also in storage , its actually Sunbeam from Edison co. for us anyway.

Hi, Hatley. I am sorry about what your friend did to you. I wonder if the microwave oven that I had was from Edison Company as well.

To be honest I don't know. It is an older microwave. My mother in law gave it to me when my husband and I got married 20 years ago and I don't know how long she had it before that so it is obviously quite old I would say it does not have a high wattage because it takes the maximum amount of time to cook everything. It still works though so I am not complaining.

I don't know the wattage of my microwave oven, but, I do know that it's a very strong one. It gets food hot very quickly. Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija
