    I promise this story about microwaves is interesting.

    I found an article that said “The microwave was invented to heat hamsters humanely in 1950s experiments.” And I thought, no it wasn’t. …was it?

    Seriously. How is this so old and yet so advanced?
    We need kitchen appliance reform. Vote YES on prop SRCT.

    Metal is danger in your microwave because it can reflect the radiowaves from the magnetron in ways that can cause violent overlap, and things like plasmatic hot spots.

    Usually the more organized the metal surfaces, and the lower amount of surface area the less likely it is to happen.

    You can microwave spoons that have minimal ridging

    Microwave transformers tend to run at very high flux densities – 2T or more, and using the original primary winding is asking for the core to overheat. It would need to be rewound for a far lower flux density to allow efficient operation as a regular transformer
