Dear 100 Hour Board,

So in a hypothetical world where somehow the glass rotating plate in my microwave broke because a well-intentioned roommate dropped it. Would anyone who lives in Heritage halls be able to measure the diameter of their glass microwave plate and report back to me the size. Thank you.

Dear Gamer,

That doesn’t sound hypothetical at all. Anyways, I don’t know anyone living in Heritage Halls because I’m old. But I googled the diameters of glass plates in microwaves and most seemed to be between 9 1/2 to 10 1/2 inches. If you google the brand of the microwave along with glass plate you can get an exact measurement. Also, if something breaks in your apartment you can always call maintenance. Hope this helps!

I may or may not be said "well-intentioned roommate". For your information, I (hypothetically) ended up going to DI and buying a whole microwave for 17$ just for the plate, which was still cheaper than purchasing from online, factoring in shipping. The stock replacement part for that microwave runs 60$. Hope this provides a good answer for any glass breakers in the future.
