Greetings Histonetters,

We have finally come to the point where we need to fish or cut bait in
relation to purchasing a laboratory approved microwave and venting it. 

While I think it would be "cool" to have one, I'm wondering if the cost
is justified to do a handful of special stains that could be done
(though more slowly) in a laboratory oven like the one we already have.

Anyone with the time or desire to opine, please chime in.

Those who have purchased such a microwave, I'll gladly take suggestions.

Thanks in advance
