I have been drying slides in a microwave purchased from our local retail
store for 10 plus years.  We have no problems with morphology, sections
lifting or broken slides.  One minute, twenty seconds on 3/4 power.  Allow
to sit in the microwave an additional two minutes, 40 seconds (four minutes
total).  Lay the slides on the counter to cool for a few seconds and load in
the stainer.  Our microwave is a small 600w with a revolving tray.
