Microwavable materials

  1. Feb 16, 2010 #1
    I'm trying to make something weird for a side project and I need some information from a physics person....what material, be it glass, plastic, some sort of alloy, etc... would conduct heat best in a microwave? Remember metal is not an option.

    Well, water or oil are good ones. But you're probably looking for something solid?
