Hi Everyone. Well, after 15 years the RV-Dreams Community Forum is coming to an end. Since it began in August 2005, we've had 58 Million page views, 124,000 posts, and we've spent about $15,000 to keep this valuable resource for RVers free and open. But since we are now off the road and have settled down for the next chapter of our lives, we are taking the Forum down effective June 30, 2021. It has been a tough decision, but it is now time.


We want to thank all of our members for their participation and input over the years, and we want to especially thank those that have acted as Moderators for us during our amazing journey living and traveling in our RV and growing the RV-Dreams Family. We will be forever proud to have been founders of this Forum and to have been supported by such a wonderful community. Thank you all!!

over counter microwave convection VS toaster convection ovens


Can someone tell me if an 1800 watt model of each of these 2 would draw the same amount of power to use.

Yep ... 1800 Watts is 1800 Watts. Same input, but it is possible that the output could be slightly different.

You could get a Kill-A-Watt and check it directly.  Here is an Amazon link for a Kill-A-Watt (about $29), https://www.amazon.com/P3-International-P4460-Electricity-Monitor/dp/B000RGF29Q/.  I have a similar device that also works well since it also saves high and low values, this is the newer model https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RHIXWM6/, for about $19.  The main problem is the manual is badly translated to English.

Be mindful of the heat produced by a toaster oven - much more than a microwave and microwave/convection ovens are well insulated.

1800W is approximately 15 amps and thus you are at the maximum of most plugs on a counter top. Most built in microwaves plug into a 20 amp circuit; I'd find a way to run the toaster-oven off of that 20 amp circuit.

 Add on to Barb's comments - The 15 amp electrical receptacle by the kitchen counter most likely will also have other items on it.  Perhaps even the fridge or another outlet perhaps in use by a coffee pot, etc.  Therefore there may not even be 15 amps "available" on that circuit under all conditions.  Just something to keep in mind.
