In the lava lamp episode, redone from season 3 in 1080p HD, the lava lamp had a bigger explosion, but she survived. During her run, many of her experiments caught fire and little else. Maybe she is like Saint Margaret II, or in this case, Margaret III. In the box of wine episode, she mysteriously beeped, and her light was turned on, even though she wasn't microwaving anything. In the fire alarm episode, her plate broke, but she was still working. In the duct tape episode her light was turned on once again, while she was neither open or microwaving stuff. In the Old Spice Body Wash episode, her interior was a mix from the inside of the lava lamp, the Old Spice Body Wash contents, and looked like Avatar puke. Poor Penelope is a trooper!
For season 10 Jon confirmed that they either will figure out a way to better clean the microwave girls, or they'll remember to retire them early. Penelope should have been retired early, as in the duct tape experiment the guys realized she was too dirty to see out of for a lot of her run.
After experiment 270 and a very tough career Penelope was given a long deserved retirement.
