First: This is not for the faint of math.
Using the internet translate WATTS to BTU's and calculate how fast it SHOULD heat water.

Now.. You need a steel (Magnetic) pan something with LOW heat index (Use Interenet) NOT Cast iron which has a high heat index. The heat index is how much effort it takes to heat the pan and how much heat it holds.

now put a measured QUART of water in the pan, stick in a digital cooking thermometer and read the temp.. Fire that mother up and start a stop watch.. When the temp hits an arbituary point (Say 200) stop the watch

Now you can do the math to figure out how many watts hit the jar as it were. NOTE: it will not be 100% efficient. use this as a benchmark

NOTE: REad the voltage at the outlet (Plug in or pass through meter or Kill-a-Watt (use pass through) for this test... If your voltage is low it WILL COOK SLOWER.

Get someone else to do the same test, compare.. Keep your results as a baseline, if it starts cooking "Slower" re-do the test and compare.
I will file this reply under be careful what you ask for!
