Paper towels are also very useful for
wrapping foods and for lining baking trays in which greasy foods such as
bacon are cooked. In general, avoid coloured paper products as the
colour may run. Some recycled paper products may contain impurities
which could cause arcing or fires when used in using microwave function.
Plastic cooking bags
Provided they are made specially for cooking, cooking bags are
microwave safe. However, be sure to make a slit in the bag so that steam
can escape. Never use ordinary plastic bags for cooking in using

Keeping an eye on things
The recipes in the book have been formulated with great care, but your success in
preparing them depends on how much attention you pay to the food as it cooks.
Always watch your food while it cooks. Your microwave function is equipped with a
light that turns on automatically when the oven is in operation so that you can see
inside and check the progress of your food. Directions given in recipes to elevate,
stir, and the like should be thought of as the minimum steps recommended. If the
food seems to be cooking unevenly, simply make the necessary adjustments you
think appropriate to correct the problem.
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 that the food remains under-

Quantity of food
The number of microwaves in your oven remains constant regardless of how much food is
being cooked. Therefore, the more food you place in the oven, the longer the cooking time.
Remember to decrease

Shape of food
Microwaves penetrate only about 2.cm into food, the interior portion of thick foods are
cooked as the heat generated on the outside travels inward. Only the outer edge of food in

your food beyond the maximum time given, according to personal preference. The

for
governing philosophy of this book is that it is best for a recipe to be conservative in
giving cooking times. While overcooked food is ruined for good. Some of the
recipes, particularly those for bread, cake, and custards, recommend that food be
removed from the oven when they are slightly undercooked. This is not a mistake.
When allowed to stand, usually covered, these foods will continue to cook outside
of the oven as the heat trapped within the outer portions of the food gradually
travels inward. If the food is left in the oven until it is cooked all the way through,
the outer portions will become overcooked or even burnt. You will become
increasingly skilful in estimating both cooking and standing times for various foods.
Density of food
Light, porous food such as cakes and breads cook more quickly than heavy, dense
foods such as roasts and casseroles. You must take care when microwaving porous
food that the outer edges do not become dry and brittle.
Height of food
The upper portion of tall food, particularly roasts, will cook more quickly than the
lower portion. Therefore, it is wise to turn tall food during cooking, sometimes

Covering with greaseproof paper
Greaseproofing effectively prevents spattering and helps food retain some heat. But because
it makes a looser cover than a lid or clingfilm, it allows the food to dry out slightly.

Stirring
Stirring is one of the most important of all microwaving techniques. In conventional
cooking, food is stirred for the purpose of blending. Microwaved food, however, is stirred
in order to spread and redistribute heat. Always stir from the outside towards the centre

To Clean Your Oven
1
Turning over
Large, tall foods such as roasts and whole chickens should be turned so that the top and
bottom will cook evenly. It is also a good idea to turn cut up chicken and chops.
Placing thicker portions facing outwards
Since microwaves are attracted to the outside portion of food, it makes sense to place
thicker portions of meat, poultry and fish to the outer edge of the baking dish. This way,
thicker portions will receive the most microwave energy and the food will cook evenly.
Shielding
Strips of aluminium foil (which block microwaves) can be placed over the corners or
edges of square and rectangular foods to prevent those portions from overcooking. Never
use too much foil and make sure the foil is secured to the dish or it may cause 'arcing' in

Testing if cooked
Food cooks so quickly in a oven, it is necessary to test it frequently. Some foods are left in
the microwave until completely cooked, but most foods, including meats and poultry, are
removed from the oven while still slightly undercooked and allowed to finish cooking
during standing time. The internal temperature of foods will rise between 5˚F (3˚C) and
15˚F (8˚C) during standing time.
Standing time
Foods are often allowed to stand for 3 to 10 minutes after being removed from the oven.
Usually the foods are covered during standing time to retain heat unless they are
supposed to be dry in texture (some cakes and biscuits, for example). Standing allows
foods to finish cooking and also helps flavour blend and develop.
