The temperature and density of food varies, I would recommend that the food is checked before cooking
commences. Pay particular attention to large joints of meat and chicken, some foods should not be completely
thawed before cooking. For example fish cooks so quickly that it is sometimes better to begin cooking while still
slightly frozen. The BREAD programme is suitable for defrosting small items such as rolls or a small loaf. These will
require a standing time to allow the centre to thaw. In the following example I will show you how to defrost 1.4Kg

may cause sparks and/or fires when used in cooking.
9 Do not rinse the turntable by placing it in water just after cooking. This may
cause breakage or damage.

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
impurities which could cause arcing or fires when used in the microwave oven.

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.

Quantity
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.

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.

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

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
