Not reliably. Not well. If your time is worth anything, buy a PC.

Or a commercial crockpot style cooker if you don't want to PC-pasteurize.

If you had the right microwave, with a thermo control and such, you might be able to do a small amount of substrate  that way. But it's unlikely to work well for most home microwaves and most users..

I have a PC, i thought this was used to sterilize rather than pasteurize?

i have about a gallon of hpoo, coir, coffee and verm mix.

I have it in soak right now. Will oven cooking in a pillow case inside a pyrex dish filled with water work?

Thanks

I don't have a link handy, but I'm sure you can search for it.

Dunno about the oven thing, I've read that it doesn't work well either. What's wrong with the pillowcase in a pot of hot water on the stove? Then you can monitor the temp.

At least an hour.  Two hours would be even better--anywhere from 140 to 160 F.

Yes. Absolutely.

I microwave my casing in covered microwavable containers at three 3 minute intervals. I have 1/4 inch holes in the lids covered with micropore tape to allow for any gas/pressure release. Probably not ideal for most but it has always worked for me.

I have a standard 'normal' microwave with no temperature settings. Just cook and thaw. This method is quick and has never failed.

The more accepted way is to pasteurize in jars or oven bags in a pot of water between 60C/140F - 70C/160F for one hour.
