microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking,
food is stirred for the purpose of blending.

what might cause variations in cooking time.
Cooking guide times and heat settings are
suggestions, chosen to help prevent
overcooking, the most common problem in
getting used to a microwave oven. Variations in
