     This goes back a ways, but the BIG problem used to be either
     OVER-cooking or, more commonly, one HECK of a MESS. Seems to me, with
     500mL bottles containing about 425-450 mL of media, in a pretty
     powerful turntable microwave (1000 watt, I believe), we used a couple
     of minutes at 50% power and examined for un-melted chunks, then
     re-heated as needed. Any higher or longer, and there were many
     boil-overs; and LIDS WERE COMPLETELY REMOVED; even totally loose, we
     still had some exploded bottles from media making a temporary "seal"
     with the lid. And cleaning up was not fun.

     Can anyone suggest the settings used on a microwave to liquidify
     microbiological media?
