Our searchable on-line microwave encyclopedia predates Wikipedia and offers something you won't find there: an index of over 500 separate pages of our own content. Something missing or incorrect? Show how much you know by telling us about it.
Sometimes complex behavior can be interpreted in three seconds if you are familiar with our Rules of Thumb. A microwave Rules of Thumb could be an inexact but notable relationship of one or more design parameters with performance, or it could just be an easy way to remember something that other, lesser people often mix up.
