Experiment: School Microwave

Got cup full of ice water. At first, water was ~10 degrees F below target temperature; after adding more water and nuking for 15 seconds (button 1), water was within acceptable range of target temperature (slightly above).

Put in school microwave and heated for 30 seconds (button 2). Heated for 1 minute (button 4). Heated for 1 minute 30 seconds (button 5?). Tried to push button 4 again to equal 4 minutes but microwave was unresponsive. Checked water temperature: was at 200 F, which shows that this microwave is far better than your standard household microwave at heating water, given that this microwave got the temperature 50 degrees hotter on a minute less.

Buttons are less than revealing. Button 1 is labeled "1: Pastry/rolls", which means 15 seconds when you push it. The other buttons have similarly revealing titles: "2: Small Sandwich", "3: Pie/Hamburger", "4: Double Sandwich", "5: Casseroles/Soup", "6: Dinner Platter", "7: Two Large Sandwiches".
