Explanation:
Aha! If it's a microwave oven, it must be a turntable (interestingly enough, there are several 'legitimate' google hits for 'tum table' (i.e, not just juxtapositions), and at least some of them should apparently be 'turn table').

rn -> m is a very common OCR error, especially with sans-serif fonts.
