Commercial microwaves are a mainstay in the day-to-day operation of the foodservice industry because of their fast cooking times and their superior food quality retention. Because they are used so frequently, it’s important as a foodservice operator to invest in an oven that will last, which starts by purchasing a unit that can keep up in your kitchen.

The Importance of Quality

Like many things in life, investing in high quality will ensure not only product longevity but a better user experience. Take Amana Commercial Microwaves, for example.  This quality, Made-in-America brand has been innovating their product line so that end users can start seeing a profitable return on their investment, and quick. But with this ROI comes an important step in the purchasing decision: wattage & power.

The Advantage of Higher Wattage

Though the initial upfront cost may be significantly more, investing in a microwave oven that has a higher wattage will deliver greater yield and more profit for your business. Trying to get a grasp of the bigger picture can have a significant influence on the best purchase and fit for your business. Here’s the break down:

More Wattage = Less Cooking Time = Faster Table Turns  = Increased Profits!

The following charts show both how cook times decrease as microwave wattage increases and the energy savings that ensue from sizing up:

(Parameters are $.10 kWh in energy costs, 100 cook cycles per day, 60 seconds typical cook time)

Furthermore, when considering output per hour, keep the following in mind:

1000 watt microwave = 13 baked potatoes 1200 watt microwave = 17 baked potatoes 1800 watt microwave = 20 baked potatoes 2200 watt microwave = 28 baked potatoes 3000 watt microwave = 33 baked potatoes

Also important to keep in mind is the fact that higher wattage equals better food quality; food retains color, texture, nutrients and taste!

Many of the higher wattage Amana microwaves available at Mission Restaurant Supply, like the RC Series, the HDC Series, and the RFS Series, cook rapidly enough that moisture in the food is actually converted to steam. So in a sense, an Amana investment can serve a dual purpose, coming in handy as a back up when your steaming equipment is down or occupied. Other benefits of using your Amana microwave as a steamer include the connectionless hook up meaning no plumbing or deliming is needed in addition to no ventilation hood being required!
