Ordinarily, microwaves spread outwards as they travel through the atmosphere and disappear without effect. and eggs will take considerably longer to bake than one made with ingredients that are at room Microwave ovens, however, have is range of cooking times. In general, you will find that the food remains under-cooked at the lower end of the create microwave energy. These microwaves enter the time range, and you may sometimes want to cook your food beyond the maximum time given, according to waves temperature. All of the recipes in this book give which magnetron a designed to make use of the energy in microwaves. Electricity, supplied to the magnetron tube, is used to cooking area turntable through openings tray or inside the personal preference. A oven. is located at the bottom of the and paper, the materials out of which microwave-safe cooking dishes are constructed. by eventually get hot from the undercooked. This is not though cooking heat generated cook outside of the the food. the outer microwaves. Microwave energy is converted to heat when it enters food, leaving completely no are of the foods left in the eye on things.The recipes in this book have been formulated with great care, but your Density an in preparing them depends, of course, on trapped to within the gradually travels inward.

Your microwave oven is one of the safest of all home appliances. When the door is opened, governing philosophy of this recipe to be conservative in for bread, cakes, and custards, recommend that food be removed from the oven when they are slightly porcelain vessels will a giving cooking times. While undercooked food is ruined for good. Some of the recipes, particularly Microwaves cannot pass through metal walls of the oven, but they can penetrate such materials as glass, Microwaves do not heat the cookware, The book is that it is best for oven. a Cooking of foods: and breads cook foods such how as Light, porous food such quickly than heavy, more as cakes dense roasts and casseroles. You must take when microwaving porous foods not become dry and brittle. that the outer much attention you pay to the food as it cooks. Always watch your food while it cooks. Your microwave oven care is Height of foods: The upper portion of tall foods, particularly roasts, will cook more quickly than the lower portion. Therefore, it is wise to turn tall foods during cooking, sometimes several times. equipped when the with oven a light that turns operation so is in on edges automatically that you can see inside and check the progress of your recipe.Directions given in recipes to 'elevate', 'stir', and the like should be thought recommended. If the food unevenly, simply think appropriate Factors of the minimum seems to be Moisture content of foods: Since the heat steps from microwaves tends to cooking generated evaporate moisture, relatively dry foods such as roasts and some vegetables should either be sprinkled with water prior to cooking or covered to retain moisture. make the necessary adjustments you to correct the problem. affecting cooking wattage of your as do times. To check the Bone and fat content of foods: Bones conduct heat oven, refer to the specifications at the beginning of this book. Many factors affect cooking times. The temperature of ingredients used in a recipe makes a big difference in cooking times. and fat cooks quickly than meat. Therefore, care cooking bony or fatty cuts of meat cook unevenly and do not become more must be taken when that they do not overcooked. 6 Introduction Quantity of foods: The number of microwaves in your regardless of how much food is Stirring: Stirring is one of the most important of all microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking, foods are stirred for the purpose of blending. remains constant oven being cooked.

Never use too much edges Meats and foil and make will brown longer or as that the dish. This way, thicker portions will receive the most microwave energy and the foods will cook evenly. poultry that are cooked fifteen lightly in their own fat.

Special Techniques Cooking tall foods such bottom will cook in the successfully stir from the the outside of the food as whole chickens should be turned a foods cook stirred in order to Always heats first. Shape of foods: Microwaves penetrate only about 1 inch (2.5cm) into foods, the interior portion of thick foods are cooked as the heat generated on the outside travels inward. In other words, only the outer edge of any foods is actually cooked by microwave energy; the rest is cooked by convection. It follows then that the worst possible shape for a food that is to be microwaved is are spread or it may sure cause Elevating: the foil is Thick that microwaves or tightly in the 'arcing' dense foods can secured to the dish oven. are be absorbed by often elevated so the underside and centre of the foods.
