How do you control the annealing time and temperature in a microwave kiln? I am having issues with glass cracking and I am pretty sure it is due to annealing times and temps. What tips do you have to control that? I have an 1100 watt microwave and my Microwave Kiln is 7-1/2 Inch Outside diameter and 5 Inch inside diameter. Any guidance is very helpful.
