If you are using the Welsh for microwave in writing, then you should use Meicrodon. However it is also ok in spoken Welsh. The words Popty Ping are not suitable for written Welsh as it is too colloquial. Popty Ping has also been known to upset some welsh speakers as they believe it makes the language look ridiculous. This not a universal view by any means.
