I'm using a Pyrex beaker and changing the distilled water each time. I set 
my times by the times used for the special stains. For instance, my lowest 
time in the microwave is 15 seconds, my highest time is 45 seconds. I set up 
a chart with 15, 30, and 45 seconds. I run this three times for each time 
and get an average.
    When I had my inspection in January, the inspector took a copy of my 
procedure and chart with her. Again, each inspector is different, but it 
passed. I'd be happy to share and I promise to keep my toes to myself.

            Hi All,

            We are wondering how others are testing temperature
reproducibility on their microwaves.  We are using a plastic coplin jar
filled with distilled water.  We then heat it at different powers and
times and take the temperature with a thermometer.  Any suggestions for
a better way?

            Thank you.
