Question
Dear Wayne

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave_oven

Is it possible to design and construct a Portable Microwave oven product which may be useful to carry while travelling by vehicle viz car, jeep etc ?.

Since it is portable, it will be battery operated - secondary source of energy as well as the portable oven's weight has to be considered. Power - battery voltage, current required for the microwave oven has to be calculated.

Also considerations will be whether all the microwave  functions can be embedded in this mini portable microwave oven model.

The Portable Microwave oven can be placed in a briefcase while transit.

Is it feasible to construct this product ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
The big problem would be power usage.  If you would use a battery you would need a fairly large one and then you have a weight problem.  In this small of a unit you may have a micro wave leakage problem as well.  The whole unit would have to be designed from scratch and then. would there be a market for this kind of product. It would require a lot of research before attempting a project like this.
