I have always found the reference to wattage is less helpful than one might think. The microwave up in Manitoulin Island where I used to spend summers had a lower wattage than my own microwave and yet I was able to burn things in it very easily. Mine claims to be 1100W and yet when I am making instant noodles I must always add time.
Mine is a mere 400W, so it matters more to me, not that I use it much.
All Barbara Kafka's books are good.
