    microwaves don"t pass thru the door of the microwave oven

    :confused: How come microwaves don"t pass thru the door of the microwave oven. Those small holes I believe have to do with this right? but how?

    Microwaves have wavelengths measured in centimeters I think so they cannot be diffracted or pass through the holes in the door.
