[* icon_caution] In the following steps, you will be using a microwave to heat an insulated bag. This bag will transfer heat to the adhesive strips along the sides of the iPad.
[* icon_note] We recommend that you clean your microwave before proceeding, as any nasty gunk stuck to the bottom of the microwave may end up stuck to the iOpener.
[* black] Place the iOpener in the microwave and microwave it for '''one minute''' on the highest power setting.
[* icon_caution] Be careful not to overheat the iOpener during the repair procedure. We recommend waiting at least two minutes before reheating the iOpener.
[* icon_caution] If you have not heated your iOpener for some time, or this is the first time you are using the iOpener, we suggest microwaving the bag wrapped in a damp paper towel. This will prevent the contents of the bag from burning in the event of over-microwaving.
