Technical Question Re: Commercial Microwave for Home
I am remodeling my kitchen and plan to put a countertop microwave in a 30"w x 18"h x 18"d wall cabinet. Reviews for residential microwaves indicate that they seem to fall down when it comes to durability so I've decided to purchase an Amana RCS10DSE 1.2 cu. ft. 1000 watt commercial microwave with varying power levels. It will have it's own dedicated 120v recepticle. The issue is for large family gatherings I want to cook 4.5 qt. casseroles until almost done and then pop in the oven for the last 15 minutes as my home only has one wall oven. I previously used this technique with my Montgomery Ward residential countertop microwave purchased in 1975, and it worked well. The Amana has 10 min. on the dial so for a large volume I plan to run for 10 min., let the MW rest with the door open for 1 - 2 minutes, and then microwave for another 10 minutes. Do you think this should work? I just don't want the microwave shutting down on me.
