New combination microwave - I'm too old for this


To close from me: The power consumption of the combi was surprise to me - perhaps my expectations managed by basic microwave ovens.

A washing machine is often rated at max 10 amps, a larger kettle (~2.5kw+) roughly the same. In UK, 2.5mm kitchen rings should have 32 amp protection at the CU.

Of course, it’s probably rare to have all the kit in full use/draw at the same time (especially with w/machines using cooler temps nowadays). But it’s not something to be overlooked, come the likes of Christmas Day when all the kit is put to use.
