    Interesting. Which way do you think generates more steam? It could be an illusion. Remember you can't see steam, only the condensate.

    I haven't a clue, it's just an impression I have and I no clue if there is any difference or if there should be. So just askin.
    Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away.

    I had a drunk tell me once that very same thing and that is where MRSA (microwave resistant staph...) came from.
    I shook my head and bought him another drink.

    Geesh, Tom. It sounds like you invented microwaves! Did you discover them?

    Amana did have the first 120v countertop, about 1967.

    There's a difference. With "conventional" heating, you are basically heating the container FIRST, and that transfers energy to the water, making it boil. In the uWave, you are more directly transferring the energy to the water making it boil, and that indirectly heats the container. So yes, "boiling Water (or coffee)" from a microwave can cool off faster than boiling water made on the stove, because the stove first has to heat the container, and that retains the heat longer than a smaller microwave container,such as a coffee cup.

    You should have included a healthy dose of penicillin... or perhaps just a bit of Valium and call the men in the little white coats...
