Nice one, well worth the price then. Just wish I had the money to get it !

Does anyone know how many watts these use in standby? Can't find any specs online.

I recently discovered that our old Panasonic microwave uses 80W in standby, which at 12p per unit = 23p a day or £84 per year for I dread to think how many years.

We turn it off at the mains now... but it might be time for a replacement.

It is well known that people use more power leaving it on standby than actually using it to cook over it's life time. I always turn everything off by the switch now.

Saying that I can't see how it can use £84 in standby as the average yearly consumption for a modern TV operating for 5 hours per day is about £40.

I'm not sure what the relevance of comparing it to a TV. I got the reading of 80w from an energy monitor.

Here's the sums:
80w x 24 hours = 1920w = 1.92kwh
365 days * 1.92kwh = 700.8kwh
700.8kwh x £0.12 = £84.10

I've just been and bought one today, plenty in stock at my local... "Kingsbury Rd, Birmingham"

HTH
Waste of time buying a microwave with grill they are rubbish. Buy a normal microwave and use the oven grill. Tesco and sainsburys have some good offers on microwaves at the moment
Tbh i will probable never use the grill but its there if i do

Sometimes I hate my imagination, I can't get the images out of my head from what I haven't seen.
I got one of these last year and it is hopeless at defrosting. Selecting 200W to defrost just causes it to cook on full blast for 1/4 of the selected time. Everything comes out with cooked edges. Buy a proper microwave!

Well because surely watching a TV must draw more power than leaving a microwave on standby. I mean all you are doing is leaving the timer on. Hey I could be wrong but I can't see how £80 could be possible and I used the TV comparison because that £40 is when in operation for 5-6 hours per day not on standby.

​That is why it would be outrageous for a microwave to use 80w on standby. The maths provided certainly are correct. What was used to measure the watts used?
Bought one today, for the price and 3 year warranty good deal.

An efficient microwave/tv or anything should probably use a couple of watts or less in standby. Ours is old and not efficient, as discovered when I started using an energy monitor.

A quick Google revealed I wasn't the only person with an old inefficient Panasonic, for example here

Yes, 80w is a LOT for a microwave standby. There are TVs now that use less than that when turned on, let alone on standby. But regardless of how much TVs use, our microwave still uses 80w and still costs over £80 per year unless we switch off at the mains.

At 12p per unit, £40 per year and 6 hours a day, that's 333kwh, 0.91kw a day/6 hours, and would equate around 150w, which is similar to what our 4 year old 42" LCD TV uses. But the microwave still uses 80w in standby.

I don't know about anybody else, but the question I'm dying to know is, if it uses 80w in standby, just how many does it use when it's switched on!?

I'd say your power meter is not functioning correctly - there's a whole thread here forums.whirlpool.net.au/arc…163 - and someone mentions the bogus 80w reading from a Panasonic Microwave.

Perhaps the monitor is malfunctioning. However its also exactly the same model monitor that is suggested in that thread as the only way to accurately test it - the 'central power monitor', E.On branded. It measures power passing through the cable at the meter, rather than at the power plug itself. How odd. I'm intrigued how I can test for certain.

Can you please tell me if you can see through the door to watch the food cooking when it's on? Thanks

Yes you can, although the door has a mirror effect... when you start to cook the light comes on inside and you can see through.
