Microwave Power

'Microwave Power' denotes how strong the cooking power of the microwave is, measured in watts (W).

A higher power level that food cooked in the microwave will cook quicker and more efficiently.

Turntable

'Turntable' indicates whether the microwave has a turntable or not. This is a device that turns the food at a regular rate during cooking, allowing the microwaves to bombard it constantly.

A turntable allows for a far more even cook, since the microwaves won't be concentrated purely on a single area over the whole cooking time, but instead spread evenly through the food.
