    I put "how a toaster works" into the search on Google and got these results.
    I am sure if you did the same with "microwave" you would get equally good results.

    We do not do your homework for you. After you have done some thinking and writing, we will be happy to make corrections and suggestions.

    I would make a list of criteria for the project; then I would choose at least three; then I would write down why I had chosen those three.

    I am sure the sites I gave you will have a description.

    And I am also sure that you know what the consequences will be if a user manual is not clear and concise.
