My favourite microwave story.
An acquittance was equipping his boat for a figure 8 through the Pacific. He installed a microwave with big inverter which would also run his girl friend's hair dryer. When I asked him about the microwave, he indicated that he needed to defrost the the food from his freezer. I told him that I understood and that I used my microwave at home for the same thing. I put frozen meat in the microwave in the morning and when I got home from work the meat was defrosted, and the cat did not get it. Note - I did not turn it on.
1000 watts at 12v - way too many amps. Lots of the boats I teach on have, seldom use them.

Brrrr....I recall a January day in Gloucester Harbor, which is only 43N, when we had to have two cans of beer going at the same time ... one thawing out on the coal-fired cast iron Lunenburg Foundry 'Fisherman' and one in hand. It was so cold the can would freeze to your lips and turn solid before you could finish it. And I'm not exaggerating.
Reddirt, forgive me for wandering off the subject of exciting food molecules at 2450 Mhz. I have no objection to that technology when used ashore, but on my boat ......
I'll admit 2450
Is pretty nifty
It'll cook a tater
Sooner not later
But on my little schooner
Meals are later not sooner
For there's no excuse
To use all that juice

Exhaust manifolds can get hot enough to pop the cans...

Engines don't get hot enough to burst the can from boiling.

|jackdale||I have run a 120V microwave, through the inverter, while running the engine at 1000 rpm. No problems.|
