How many watts does a coffee maker use?

I have four machines, they all use various amounts. my oldest drip around 700–800watts to my highest which is my Tassimo machine using about 1700 watts for about 1 minute while brewing one cup.

3years ago I have a small little drip machine that was like the personal brewers you see in hotel rooms, and I think that was 300–400 watts. so it varies.

They come in a variety of sizes and wattages. I have both 1500 watt and 700-watt models. Just look at the nameplate and see.

Many nameplates are tiny and not easy to see so get a magnifying glass and hold the coffeemaker so it is lighted to the best advantage.

How many watts does a Keurig use?

Of course, it does depend on the brand (they make almost a dozen different kinds).

Most that I have seen (US models) are 120 volt powered, and use around 800–1000 watts, although typically for short bursts (while heating the water for about 10–20 seconds). The standby power is around 30 watts.


Post an image of the label of the machine, I’ll read it for you 🙂
If you don’t own a Keurig go into a store and take a pic of the label of the machine you’re involved in.

Will a 1000 watt inverter run a coffee maker?

It depends on the coffee machine. If it is a noncommercial machine then you cant use it on an inverter. If it is a capsule-based machine or home purpose bean to cup up to 30 cups per day capacity then surely it can be used on an inverter

How many amps does a coffee maker use?

Depends on your coffee maker; ideal home units with a plug are going to be 120v in the US and shouldn’t draw more than 5 amps.

The info specific to your unit will either be on the box and documentation that came with the unit or on the unit’s nameplate.

If you’re talking about a business unit all bets are off, those come in just about every sequence of voltage and phase, all of which have different current conditions; have to go to the manufacturer’s specs in this case.


Also, if the unit lists its strength consumption in watts it’s just a matter of dividing the provided wattage by the voltage (120V here in the USA) to find the rates current.
