What is the machine's energy rating? How much energy does it consume?
When in use the machines energy consumption is lower than 1.455 W/h. The exact numbers depend on what kind of mode you use and in which stage the machine is operating. As the machine does use a small amount of power in stand-by mode, we recommend, for extended periods of non-use, switching the machine off at the power plug.
