Factors affecting microwave cooking times
Many factors affect cooking times. The
temperature of ingredients used in a recipe
makes a big difference in cooking times. For
example, a cake made with ice-cold butter, milk,
and eggs will take considerably longer to bake
than one made with ingredients that are at room
temperature. All of the recipes in this book give a
range of cooking times. In general, you will find

Stirring is one of the most important of all
microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking,
food is stirred for the purpose of blending.

Q
standing time recommended after

After microwave cooking is finished, food keeps
on cooking during standing time. This standing
time finishes cooking evenly throughout the food.
The amount of standing time depends on the
density of the food.

the cooking guide says?
Check your cooking guide again to make sure
you've followed directions correctly, and to see
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
the size, shape, weight and dimensions of the
food require longer cooking time. Use your own
judgement along with the cooking guide
suggestions to test food condition, just as you
