Cynthia, May I suggest a Microwave Processor, instead of the standard
kitchen-type microwave.  These usually have the ability to be vented (a
great safety plus if you intend to use it for tissue processing or special
staining). Additionally, the better models can control temperature
precisely, so attention to exact placement, fluid levels etc. can be
eliminated.  Energy Beam Sciences (413-786-9322) carries a line of these,
and I'm sure there are other companies out there as well. I've had an Energy
Beam H2500 Microwave Processor for a number of years now and have been very
pleased with it's versatility, dependability and safety features.  They also
carry the book "Microwave Cookbook of Pathology".  Don't let it's title
mislead you, it is a very informative reference source specific to our
fields needs. Hope this helps.
