MICROWAVE OVEN USE
A magnetron in the microwave oven produces microwaves which
reflect off the metal floor, walls and ceiling and pass through the
turntable and appropriate cookware to the food. Microwaves are
attracted to and absorbed by fat, sugar and water molecules in
the food, causing them to move, producing friction and heat
which cooks the food.
■ To avoid damage to the microwave oven, do not lean on or
allow children to swing on the microwave oven door.
■
To avoid damage to the microwave oven, do not operate
microwave oven when it is empty.
■
Baby bottles and baby food jars should not be heated in
microwave oven.
■
Clothes, flowers, fruit, herbs, wood, gourds, paper, including
brown paper bags and newspaper, should not be dried in
microwave oven.
■
Paraffin wax will not melt in the microwave oven because it
does not absorb microwaves.
■
Use oven mitts or pot holders when removing containers from
microwave oven.
■
Do not overcook potatoes. At the end of the recommended
cook time, potatoes should be slightly firm. Let potatoes
stand for 5 minutes. They will finish cooking while standing.
■
Do not cook or reheat whole eggs inside the shell. Steam
buildup in whole eggs may cause them to burst, requiring
significant cleanup of microwave oven cavity. Cover poached
eggs and allow a standing time.
Food Characteristics
When microwave cooking, the amount, size and shape, starting
temperature, composition and density of the food affect cooking
results.
Cooking Guidelines
Covering
Covering food helps retain moisture, shorten cook time and
reduce spattering. Use the lid supplied with cookware. If a lid is
not available, wax paper, paper towels or plastic wrap approved
for microwave ovens may be used. Plastic wrap should be turned
back at one corner to provide an opening to vent steam.
Condensation on the door and cavity surfaces is normal during
heavy cooking.
Stirring and Turning
Stirring and turning redistribute heat evenly to avoid overcooking
the outer edges of food. Stir from outside to center. If possible,
turn food over from bottom to top.
Arranging
If heating irregularly shaped or different sized foods, arrange the
thinner parts and smaller sized items toward the center. If cooking
several items of the same size and shape, place them in a ring
pattern, leaving the center of the ring empty.
Piercing
Before heating, use a fork or small knife to pierce or prick foods
that have a skin or membrane, such as potatoes, egg yolks,
chicken livers, hot dogs, and sausage. Prick in several places to
allow steam to vent.
Shielding
Use small, flat pieces of aluminum foil to shield the thin pieces of
irregularly shaped foods, bones and foods such as chicken wings,
leg tips and fish tail. See “Aluminum Foil and Metal” first.
Standing Time
Amount of Food
The more food heated at once, the longer the cook time needed.
Check for doneness and add small increments of time if
necessary.
Food will continue to cook by the natural conduction of heat even
after the microwave cooking cycle ends. The length of standing
time depends on the volume and density of the food.
Cookware and Dinnerware
Size and Shape
Smaller pieces of food will cook more quickly than larger pieces,
and uniformly shaped foods cook more evenly than irregularly
shaped food.
Starting Temperature
Cookware and dinnerware must fit on the turntable. Always use
oven mitts or pot holders when handling because any dish may
become hot from heat transferred from the food. Do not use
cookware and dinnerware with gold or silver trim. Use the
following chart as a guide, then test before using.
Room temperature foods will heat faster than refrigerated foods,
and refrigerated foods will heat faster than frozen foods.

Meal Prep Defrost
Sensor Cooking
The automatic defrost function can be used, or the microwave
oven can be manually set to defrost.
■ Unwrap foods and remove lids (e.g. fruit juice containers)
before defrosting.
■ Shallow packages will defrost more quickly than deep blocks.
■ Separate food pieces as soon as possible during or at the
end of cycle for more even defrosting.
■ Use small pieces of aluminum foil to shield parts of food such
as chicken wings, leg tips and fish tails. See “Aluminum Foil
and Metal” first.
The automatic defrost function should not be used for food left
outside the freezer for more than 20 minutes and frozen readymade food.
Times and cooking power have been preset for defrosting certain
food types. Use the following chart as a guide.
A sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released from
the food as it heats, and adjusts the cook time accordingly.
Many sensor cycles require the covering of foods. Microwavesafe containers or steamers with loose-fitting lids are
recommended. The loose-fitting lid allows enough steam to
