it would be good to see if someone uses a cheap microwave to heat coal with regularly and see how long it last, or if there are any problems. my only problem is that they take up quite alot of space, especailly getting another one!!!
physics 101, a microwave heats things bys shaking the water molecules in it very fast causing heat, now you might be able to heat a coal up in a microwave but i would be willing to bet you could not safely and reliably light coals in a microwave
