    It's recommended to keep microwave ovens for no longer than 10 years.

    That's for leaks it's not the same as irradiating your food though is it? As long as you don't stand too close to it you're fine.

    Quite right.

    Bit like objections to irradiated food 'cos it might be radio active. It's not. In fact irradiated food is about the safest thing you can eat, no live bacteria left!

    It has been known for the amateur fraternity to use the output of a microwave magnetron as a TV transmitter. I only used to used 25W at 1.25Ghz

    You want the microwaves to pass through the food to heat it up - you don't want the microwaves to leak out and pass through your body.
    If you didn't "expose your food to harmful radiation" it wouldn't warm up - that's how they work

    "Fine" is of course open to debate... I personally wouldn't keep the same microwave oven after 10 years of use, especially when basic ones now [which is all I'd imagine you'd need] can be bought brand new for buttons.

    As matter of interest, how often do you clean yours? I can imagine after 25 years of use, without proper maintenance, some nice 'wee crusty bits' will have built up inside...

    Indeed, but there are measurable levels of acceptable safety, and levels which may exceed that, due to key parts of microwave ovens degrading with age. I have a hard and fast rule: never take *ANY* risks whatsoever with the safety of electrical appliances, or the food I eat, especially when it's completely unnecessary.

    My good health is the most precious of all commodities, and I'd like it to continue for as long as possible!
