Microwave for glasswork

If one was to retire a microwave from food preparation, to be redeployed for glass work, is there an optimum range of power that would be required? Anything that a person would need to know?

The kilns we bought recommend a minimum of 1100 watts. However, many of the folks on the Facebook group for microwave fusing have microwaves as low as 800 watts and they can fuse glass. The lower the wattage, the longer it takes, but you can still get good results.


I found a blog that recommends 800-1200 watts. That really opens up some lower cost microwaves for doing it at home!


Thank you both and thank you again! (Is that enough characters?)
