    I have just been curious.. How come when microwaving two of the same things it takes double the time to cook them all the way through?

    Microwaving one hot pocket takes about three minutes i would say, but microwaving two on three minutes doesn't cook them both all the way through.

    :D Sorry we hijacked your post to marvel at Poochees response.:p:D

    A heating device has only so much BTU to output. The more mass to heat up, the slower the rate.

    When building commercial ovens to heat treat parts, the size of the part, its composition, the required uniformity, and the desired heat up rate is needed.
