Title: Microwaving in a carousel with magnetrons below a food product isolated by a nonconductor

Abstract: One or more magnetrons may be used directly underneath the foods to be cooked/heated. However, a thin layer of nonconductor, such as a glass is used to physically isolate the magnetrons from the foods while permitting the microwave energy to transmit through the nonconductor. A wave-guide may be used to transmit the microwave energy from one or more magnetrons to a surface adjacent to the food products such that the magnetrons are placed a distance away from the food products. A nonconductor is also used to isolate the wave-guide from the foods.
