Microwave Cooking Times

Welcome to the new Microwave Technologies Association Website:
Our Mission:

The Microwave Technologies Association was originally founded in the UK in 1978 as a trade organisation to represent microwave cooker manufacturers. As the market developed, so the MTA changed to meet the demands and needs of the day.

Today, the MTA has a thriving membership comprising of major companies and qualified individual consultants. Members include those involved with both the domestic and commercial aspects of microwave appliances, including food, packaging and microwave manufacturers, retailers, educationalists, journalists and servicemen.

Since it was formed, the MTA has been at the forefront of all major issues relating to the use and development of microwave products. It is represented on government and national committees.

The aim of the Association is for members to exchange knowledge and experience and to continuously update their technical expertise. In doing so, they encourage consumers, training and educational establishments, the media, and all bodies engaged in the use, instruction and marketing of microwaves and associated products to be fully and correctly informed on technical and future developments.

Our Mission Continues to be:
"recognised as an international forum for discussion on the current and future issues of microwave oven related technology and application.

The current membership represents all areas of interest to commerce and industry and consumer groups and allows a balanced view in agreeing the Association's activities and action plans.

A key activity is in education and training and dissemination of useful information for the end user of microwave ovens and microwave products."

The Microwave Technologies Association will continue to address the needs of its members and strive to educate both professionals and users in all aspects relating to microwave energy.
