 According to a 2006 report in the Economist, "a typical microwave oven consumes more electricity powering its digital clock than it does heating food." While heating food requires as much as 100 times the power as running the clock does, the Economist notes that the microwave heats food less than 1% of the time while the clock is typically always running. Therefore, in total, the clock uses up more electricity.
