I use the steamer and heat the ar buffer in the mw to boiling before putting
it in the steamer that way it only takes about 5 min. to preheat.

Yes, we use that too. Only problem is that for long ARs (30-35 min), it
tends to run out of water if not topped up - it takes about 15-20 min to
bring the temp of citrate buffer in a Coplin jar up to 95 deg C.
