The wattage depends on how many elements you have on. If you turn all elements on, you should have around 42 watts. If you just have the oven on and one cooktop element or just the oven or just 2 elements etc the amp draw is less. It's recommended to use a 50 amp breaker for this appliance but it's also stated that the oven can be used on a 40 amp breaker if you have 205 volts instead of 220 (commercial setting).
