Relay to power a microwave


I'd like to use a relay to power an 800 watt microwave. Would this relay be sufficient?

Yes, it will handle the load. But why? Microwaves are not intended to be frequently powered on and off. The clock will reset every time, and I can't imagine what benefit would result from it.

We want to control access. People will swipe their access card and the system will close the dry contacts on the relay for a set period of time.

if you cant see the pdf, try accessing thru here: http://ribrelays.com/Products/Dry-Co.../RIB01BDC.html and see the datasheet
