Re: [Histonet] procedure for calibrating the wattage on a microwave oven

From:Phil McArdle


First off, I'm a vendor, but here's some info:

First of all, there is no way to "calibrate" either temperature or 
wattage on a household microwave without temperature feedback/control 
(i.e., temperature probe) and/or a means provided by the manufacturer to 
adjust/calibrate. However, one CAN do an output power test, and adjust 
your protocols accordingly; the link below outlines the method:

Other material in our "library" section may be useful as well, plus our 
sheet of CAP-related recommendations has been well-received:
