The voltage has no effect on cooking time, heat or wattage. A 1500 watt appliance pulls 1500 watts no matter the voltage for example.
The wattage is what one looks at when determining the capabilities of any appliance including your oven that I have never heard of.
Do you have the instruction manual that came with it? In there you will find answers to how your oven works and basic recipes.
Oh! Pillsbury frozen biscuits are better than any homemade biscuits I have ever eaten!
Wattage is a function of voltage and current. Where I=current, and E=voltage, P = power, formula is E X V=P usually measured in watts. Where voltage is constant, the load, usually a combination of reactive, and restrictive components determines the current draw, and in turn the wattage of a given application. So for a 1500 W appliance, with a 120 V constant voltage source (wall socket) The current draw would be I= P/E, or 1500/120= 12.5 Amperes, or amps. Most house wiring is designed for upto a 15 ampere current draw, and so will safely handleup to 120v x 15 a = 1800 W.
Wattage is a measure of power. With your convection oven,some of the power is converted to heat, some lighting the light bulb, and some driving the fan.
The higher the rated power (WATS) the greater the amount of electrical energy that can be converted to heat. So, for some of you, I hope you enjoyed a most basic electrical lesson.
