Could you please advise me the amount of water to put in a bowl to test if my Samsung microwave is working correctly.

My owner's instructions just states: Place a bowl of water on the glass plate. Close the door . Set the time to 4 to 5 minutes by pressing the 1 MIN button. Press the POWER LEVEL button once. Press the START button. The oven heats the water for 4 to 5 minutes. The water should then be boiling.

I am confused as to how much water, 1/4 pint? 1/2 pint? l pint?

Thanking you in advance for any help.

A pint should boil in 4-5 min. the less water you put in the faster it should boil, try a pint and see if it boils in 4- 5 min. let me know thanks Bryan
