1000 Watt Power meter, can buy at most electrical stores, bestbuys or radio shacks, probably construction related stores as well.

You attach the device in between the wall socket and whatever you want to check.

ThinkGeek :: Kill-A-Watt
ThinkGeek :: Kill-A-Watt EZ
ThinkGeek :: Watt's Up Pro

One of these should do the trick.
