This is a serious question. Every once in a while, more than one person wants to heat something up in a microwave, so I'm just wondering if it's actually safe to operate both units at the same time from the standpoint of radiation exposure. For example, would being in a room with more than one microwave oven running at a time, in general, be unsafe, or would standing anywhere within the space between the two units while they are both running, be unsafe, etc.?
Currently the ovens are approximately 9 feet apart in distance. One of them is an 800 watt stand-alone unit and I believe the built-in unit to be approximately 1000 watts.
If 9 feet is too close a distance, than how far apart would they need to be for the radiation levels to be safe when operating both units at the same time? If you think it is a mistake to ever run more than one unit at a time, then let me know, and I will ensure this never happens. (I'm just talking about from a radiation standpoint, not an electrical-wiring standpoint)
