    Need to check the amps a microwave uses. Then get a converter that is more amps. A ton of good ones out there

    There are a couple treads on here on how to do that. Microwave takes serious inverter power and batteries, wire, proper crimp tools, AC and DC electrical knowledge, engineering and planning. Its a big $$$ project. Ask me how i know:)

    For us, I was looking to be able to do breakfast, microwave and coffee maker. I spec'd a 2800 W sine wave inverter/charger. I have an electrical engineering background and it took me a year of research and planning to get a system planned and installed.

    If your up to the challenge, there is enough know how on this site to guide you through the process.

    I love having an inverter to do breakfast in a silent cove without the generator running!!

    Volts times Amps = Watts. If you have a 1500 Watt microwave you need an inverter that produces more than 1500 watts. A 12 volt group 27 deep cycle produces 100+ Amps so it produces 100 (Amps) times 12 (Volts) = 1200 Watts. With an inverter you need input power to get what you want for output power. If you do not have deep cycle batteries you can destroy a start battery if you use it to produce power for an extended period of time. As noted by defeld there are lots of threads on the site that can help. With an inverter you need a battery bank and the correct size inverter for the task you want to do.
