After struggling with a Warthin Starry and trying to do 30 slides in a day
with that stain, Steiner and Steiner won hands down  ala Peggy Wenk's
protocol, a pretty basic procedure.  I now do them in bulk for Helicobacter
felis using a waterbath instead of MW.  I would use MW IF I had fewer slides
to deal with, but like the 1 hour intervals to do other things.  Found it
less messy, easier to control, and gorgeous staining without crummy
background problems.  Pays to have a good positive control, though.
