Watts are units for measuring the rate of energy consumption. So it is meaningless to speak of how many watts something consumes in a length of time. (It would be like asking how many miles per hour a car drives in an hour.)

Energy consumption may be measured in kilowatt-hours. A typical microwave consumes 1500 watts, which would be 1.5 kilowatt-hours in one hour.
