Paper plates and containers are convenient and safe to use in your microwave oven,
provided that the cooking time is short and foods to be cooked are low in fat and
moisture. 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

recipes in the book have been formulated with great care, but your success in

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-cooked at the
lower end of the time range, and you may sometimes want to cook your food beyond
the maximum time given, according to personal preference. The 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.
stir, and the like should be
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 several
times.
26
the heat generated from microwaves tends to evaporate moisture, relatively dry food
such as roasts and some vegetables should either be sprinkled with water prior to cooking
or covered to retain moisture.
Bone and fat content of food
Bones conduct heat and fat cooks more quickly than meat. Care must be taken when
cooking bony or fatty cuts of meat that they do not cook unevenly and do not become
overcooked.
Since
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 cooking times by at least one third when halving a recipe.

Food cooks so quickly in a microwave 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 50F (30C)
and 150F (80C) during standing time.
Standing time
Foods are often allowed to stand for 3 to 10 minutes after being removed from the
microwave oven. Usually the foods are covered during standing time to retain heat unless
