I have a Kenmore Microwave oven (range top)

It is dated April 1990. I do not have an owner's manual

I need to know the wattage in order to use a microwave steam sterilizer for baby bottles.

The following information was taken from the appliance:

Model # 721.8815181

Seriel # 00401258

Can anyone help me find the wattage?

Their should be an identification tag on the appliance which should state the consumption wattage and often the cooking wattage too, maybe on the back?

Other than that, you'd likely have to contact S ears with the model number and ask them if they can find out or try using the formula at the following link (if you have metric measuring devices).

This is not exact....but I looked up the magnetron part# and it's replacement part#....came up as a Magnetron, 700-800 Watts.

Other than that, try Dan's suggestion of the link he provided.
