Halacha - Non-kosher microwave oven
Submitted by Eli  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: Technically speaking double wrapping you food would work, but it is often not a practical solution. A microwave heats the water molecules and causes more steam than a conventional oven. This rising steam causes pressure that is likely to rupture the seal and force or melt open the wrapping, which would render your lunch forbidden. Therefore I would not recommend its use.
