To heat or reheat successfully in the microwave, it is important to follow several guidelines. Measure the amount of
food in order to determine the time needed to reheat.
Arrange the food in a circular pattern for best results. Room
temperature food will heat faster than refrigerated food. Canned foods should be taken out of the can and placed in a
microwavable container. The food will be heated more evenly if covered with
a
microwavable lid or vented plastic
wrap. Remove cover carefully to prevent steam burns. Use the following chart as a

Moisture content of food
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 oven 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
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.

Placing thicker portions facing outwards
Since microwaves are attracted to the outside portion of food, it makes sense to place

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

Most prepacked food normally falls into this category, usually being packed
