Microwave cooking advice
Microwave cooking advice
Microwave cooking
To cook/defrost food in a microwave oven, the microwave energy must be able to
pass through the container to penetrate the food. Therefore it is important to
choose suitable cookware.
Round/oval dishes are preferable to square/oblong ones as the food in the corners
tends to overcook.
It is important to turn, rearrange or stir food to ensure even heating.
Standing time is necessary after cooking as it enables the heat to disperse equally
throughout the food.
Food characteristics
Composition Foods high in fat or sugar (e.g. Christmas pudding, mince pies) require less heating time. Care
should be taken as overheating can lead to fire.
Density
Food density will affect the amount of cooking time needed. Light porous foods, such as
cakes or bread, cook more quickly than heavy, dense foods, such as roasts and casseroles.
Quantity
The cooking time must be increased as the amount of food placed in the oven increases.
E.g. four potatoes will take longer to cook than two.
Size
Small foods and small pieces cook faster than large ones, as microwaves can penetrate from
all sides to the centre. For even cooking make all the pieces the same size.
Shape
Foods which are irregular in shape, such as chicken breasts or drumsticks, take longer to cook
in the thicker parts. Round shapes cook more evenly than square shapes when microwave
cooking.
Temperature The initial temperature of food affects the amount of cooking time needed. Chilled foods will
of food
take longer to cook than food at room temperature. Cut into foods with fillings, e.g. jam
doughnuts, to release heat or steam.
Cooking techniques
Arrange
Cover
Pierce
Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish. E.g. Chicken drumsticks.
Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
Foods with a shell, skin or membrane must be pierced in several places before cooking or
reheating as steam will build up and may cause food to explode, e.g. Potatoes, Fish, Chicken,
Sausages.
Important: Eggs should not be heated using microwave power as they may explode, even
after cooking has ended, e.g. poached, hard boiled.
Stir, turn and For even cooking it is essential to stir, turn and rearrange food during cooking. Always stir and
rearrange
rearrange from the outside towards the centre.
Stand
Standing time is necessary after cooking to enable the heat to disperse equally throughout
the food.
Shield
Some areas of food being defrosted may become warm. Warm areas can be shielded with
small pieces of foil, which reflect microwaves, e.g. legs and wings on a chicken.
Microwave cooking advice

Microwave
Comments
safe
Aluminium foil /
/
Small pieces of aluminium foil can be used to shield food from
foil containers
overheating. Keep foil at least 2 cm from the oven walls, as arcing
may occur. Foil containers are not recommended unless specified by
the manufacturer, e.g. Microfoil ®, follow instructions carefully.
Browning dishes
Always follow the manufacturers instructions. Do not exceed
heating times given. Be very careful as these dishes become very hot.
China and ceramics
/
Porcelain, pottery, glazed earthenware and bone china are usually
suitable, except for those with metallic decoration.
Glassware e.g. Pyrex ®
Care should be taken if using fine glassware as it can break or crack if
heated suddenly.
Metal
It is not recommended to use metal cookware when using microwave power as it will arc, which can lead to fire.
Plastic / polystyrene
Care must be taken as some containers warp, melt or discolour at
e.g. fast food containers
high temperatures.
Cling film
Should not touch the food and must be pierced to let the steam
escape.
Freezer / roasting bags
Must be pierced to let steam escape. Ensure bags are suitable for
microwave use. Do not use plastic or metal ties, as they may melt or
catch fire due to the metal arcing.
Paper - plates cups
and kitchen paper
Straw and wooden
containers
Recycled paper
and newspaper
Only use for warming or to absorb moisture. Care must be taken as
overheating may cause fire.
Always attend the oven when using these materials as overheating
may cause fire.
May contain extracts of metal which will cause ‘arcing’ and may lead
to fire.

Suggested use
Used for fast cooking or reheating e.g. soup, casseroles, canned food, hot beverages, vegetables,
fish, etc.
Used for longer cooking of dense foods such as roast joints, meat loaf and plated meals, also for
sensitive dishes such as cheese sauce and sponge cakes. At this reduced setting, the sauce will
not boil over and food will cook evenly without over cooking at the sides.
For dense foods which require a long cooking time when cooked conventionally, eg. beef dishes,
it is advisable to use this power setting to ensure the meat will be tender.
To defrost, select this power setting, to ensure that the dish defrosts evenly. This
setting is also ideal for simmering rice, pasta, dumplings and cooking egg custard.
For gentle defrosting, eg. cream gateaux or pastry.
For standing/kitchen timer.

Adapting recipes for the microwave oven
If you would like to adapt your favourite recipes for the microwave, you
should take note of the following: Shorten cooking times by a third to a half.
Follow the example of the recipes in this book.
Foods which have a high moisture content such as meat, fish, poultry,
vegetables, fruit, stews and soups can be prepared in your microwave without
any difficulty.
Foods which have little moisture, such as platters of food, should have the
surface moistened prior to heating or cooking.
The amount of liquid to be added to raw foods, which are to be braised, should
be reduced to about two thirds of the quantity in the original recipe. If
necessary, add more liquid during cooking.
The amount of fat to be added can be reduced considerably. A small amount of
butter, margarine or oil is sufficient to flavour food. For this reason your
microwave is excellent for preparing low-fat foods as part of a diet.

maintain the oven in a clean condition could lead to a deterioration of the surface that could
adversely affect the life of the appliance and possibly result in a hazardous situation.
Oven exterior
The outside of your oven can be cleaned easily with mild soap and water. Make sure the soap is
wiped off with a moist cloth, and dry the exterior with a soft towel.
Control panel
Open the door before cleaning to de-activate the control panel. Care should be taken when
cleaning the control panel. Using a cloth dampened with water only, gently wipe the panel until it
becomes clean. Avoid using excessive amounts of water. Do not use any sort of chemical or
abrasive cleaner.
Oven interior
1. For cleaning, wipe any splatters or spills with a soft damp cloth or sponge after each use while
the oven is still warm. For heavier spills, use a mild soap and wipe several times with a damp
cloth until all residues are removed. Do not remove the waveguide cover.
2. Make sure that mild soap or water does not penetrate the small vents in the walls which may
cause damage to the oven.
3. Do not use spray type cleaners on the oven interior.
4. Heat up your oven regularly by using the grill. Remaining food or fat splashed can cause
smoke or a bad smell.
Turntable & turntable support
Remove the turntable and turntable support from the oven. Wash the turntable and turntable
support in mild soapy water. Dry with a soft cloth. Both the turntable and the turntable support
are dishwasher safe.
Door
To remove all trace of dirt, regularly clean both sides of the door, the door seals and sealing
surfaces with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use harsh abrasive cleaners or sharp metal scrapers to
clean the oven door glass since they can scratch the surface, which may result in shattering of the
glass.
Rack
This should be washed in a mild washing up liquid solution and dried. The rack is dishwasher safe.
Important: A steam cleaner should not be used.
Reduced power level
Important:
If you cook the food over the standard time with only the same cooking mode, the
power of the oven will lower automatically to avoid overheating. (The microwave
power level will be reduced or the grill heating element will begin to light on and
off.) After pausing for 90 seconds, full power can be reset.
