Abstract/Scope IEC 60705:2010 applies to microwave ovens for household use. It also applies to combination microwave ovens. This standard defines the main performance characteristics of household microwave ovens which are of interest to the user, and it specifies methods for measuring these characteristics. This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 1999, its amendment 1 (2004) and its amendment 2 (2006), and constitutes a technical revision. The main changes from the previous edition are as follows: - the definition of rounding is given in 3.5; - the usable volume and the overall volume are respectively determined in 7.2 and 7.3.
