Microwave oven generates a harmful electromagnetic wave at 2.45 GHz of 1000 Watts. The generated microwave is confined within the cavity of the oven for efficient heating and secured operation. To prevent microwave leakage through the front glass door, a special construction of Faraday Cage is involved. In this paper, Faraday Cage is replaced with Transparent Frequency Selective Surface Front Door, which provides better visibility and avoids microwave energy to escape from the oven. Two works are proposed in this paper. The first one is band pass response which has been achieved for 10 GHz by printing array of Greek cross aperture (FSS) on the front glass door, and the second work is band stop response which has been achieved for 2.4 GHz frequency by printing the array of circular ring patch (FSS) on the front glass door. Design of two different FSS arrays and the simulation results were discussed.
