    The virtual microwave oven is computer software wich simulates the workings of the microwave oven. It can simplify the design of packaging for microwave meals which enables these meals to be warmed up in such a way the temperature differences (warm spots and cold spots) in the various food items during the warming-up proces are minimised. The results compromise 3-dimensional visuals of the meal indicating temperature distribution. These results can enhance communication druing the development process among those concerned, such as food and packaging designers
