This obviously isn't scientific, but I have noticed it happening at a quickening rate. I have had the same microwave oven for the last 2 years now.
We have an identical model at where I work as well, so I use both of them.
I noticed that it puts out a bit more power than some older models as normally I could cook a regular 3.3 oz bag of popcorn in about 3 1/2 minutes
with my older microwave. This one does it in about a minute less or 2 1/2 minutes.
I should know as I accidently hit the popcorn button a time or two and totally burnt the bag.
What I encountered lately is that 2 1/2 minutes has steadily gotten shorter and shorter. I am pretty sure there is no way the microwave can be
experiencing some way that it is putting out more power - even both the one at home and at work, and I also checked and the atmospheric pressure is
not abnormal; about 29.93 here, right now.
Tonight, I put in a bag and stood while it cooked and it was fully done and not popping after just 1 1/2 minutes. I couldn't believe it.
Are they changing they corn kernels or is something causing the energy levels of radio waves to change the way they act on objects?
