Powering down to 800 watts

powering down to 800 watts is as easy as counting

Most of our microwaves are 1100 to 1200 watts.

Lekue’s recipes are for the 800 watt microwaves found in Europe (Lekue is from Barcelona, Spain).

To powerdown your microwave find your wattage located on an inside wall, or on the white edge you see when you open the microwave door.

For example  8 would equal 880 watts for an 1100 watt microwave and 960 watts for a 1200 watt microwave.  5 would be 550 watts for an 1100 watt microwave and 600 watts for a 1200 watt microwave.

I have an 1100 watt microwave. I usually enter 7 (770 watts), cook for the suggested time and then add a bit more to reach my food preferences.   Once you find your spot and pattern you’ll never think about it again…it’s that easy
