These are maxima and minima specifications, and only give you a limit
for how much power can be drawn.

Why don't you pop down to Coles or Woolies and get an energy meter; $25
or so unit that plugs into the wall, you plug the appliance into it, and
it tells you how many watt hours are consumed.  Saw one in Coles the
other day.
