In answer to the original poster's question - yes. two 2000's will power just about any microwave - they may or may not power additional appliances at the same time.
I recently returned from two weeks in the rockies camped at 9000 feet.
Our single Honda 2000 was maxed out with our smallish MW. With the eco-throttle "off", AND the converter off (we found this to be important) the single Honda would struggle, but it would run.
Our two Honda 2000's have the jets set for use at sea level. There is a significant loss of power at altitude.
In addition, I try to run the gennies at least every three months. Most of the problems I have found with the Honda's can be traced to bad or old fuel. One failure that was not a fuel related problem was found last year at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta - my seven year old 2000 lost the ignition magnet. I suppose the glue holding the magnet to the flywheel just let loose. After regluing the unit now works fine.
