Microwave on Yom Tov


#1

If you can use your electric oven or stove on Yom Tov, are you therefore also allowed to use your microwave to cook on yom tov…
And whatever that may entail;
*Setting minutes to cook,
*Defrosting meat
*No problem with light going on when you start the cooking? In fact maybe in this case you do want the light to see how the cooking is doing.?
*Closing it when you finished cooking and consequently turning the MW light off ( not like a fridge where you want to keep the door closed to maintain temperature)

Thanks

One may not use a microwave on Shabbat or Yom Tov.
