    Hi Ladonna - Sounds really good, but I have a dumb question.  What is "microwave on roast 70%" ?  I can set the power level on mine - is that what it means?

    Thanks!  TXSue

     Yes, that's what that means.

     No question is a dumb question.  Sometimes I don't explain things very well.

     Good luck with it.
