Haha, yet again, spot on with your advice, thanks Integral. This from wikipedia.
A microwave oven does not convert all electrical energy into microwaves. A typical consumer microwave oven could consume 1100 W, and deliver 700 W of microwave power. The remaining 400 W are dissipated as heat in the magnetron tube, which will not end up in the food but rather in the air in the kitchen.
That incredibly ineficiant if you ask me, they should design a better one.
