Microwave-safe utensils
If you are not sure whether an item is microwave-safe or not, you can perform the following simple test:
1. Place 1 cup of water (in a glass-measuring cup) inside your oven
next to the item to be tested.
2. Press the Add 30 Sec. button twice to heat them both for one
minute at high power.
03 Cookware guide
To cook food in the microwave oven, the microwaves must be able to penetrate the
food without being reflected or absorbed by the dish.
It is important to choose the correct cookware, therefore look for cookware that is
marked microwave-safe.
The following table lists various types of cookware and indicates if and how they
should be used in a microwave oven.
After one minute, the water should be warm and the item you are testing
should be cool. If the dish is warm, then it is absorbing microwave
energy and is not microwave-safe.

cooking guide
Microwave energy actually penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by the water,
fat and sugar content. The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move
rapidly. The rapid movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting
heat cooks the food.
Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter foods. Foods with a delicate texture should
be heated at a low power level to avoid becoming tough.
Foods with a non-porous skin such as potatoes or hot dogs, should be pierced to prevent bursting.
Putting heating oil or fat in the microwave is not recommended. Fat and oil can suddenly boil over and
cause severe burns.
Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly in the jelly doughnut will be hotter than the
dough. Keep this in mind to avoid burns.
The altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect the cooking time. When using a new recipe,
use the minimum cooking time and check the food occasionally to prevent overcooking.
Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because not all harmful bacteria may be
destroyed by the microwave heating process.
Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat from the food is often transferred to the
cookware. Always use pot holders when removing food from the microwave and instruct children to do the
same.
Making candy in the microwave is not recommended as candy can be heated to very high temperatures.
Keep this in mind to avoid injury.
04 Cooking guide
General microwave tips
Cooking techniques
If the oven is set to cook for more than 25 minutes, it will automatically adjust to 70 percent
power after 25 minutes to avoid overcooking.
Stirring
Stir foods such as casseroles and vegetables while cooking to distribute heat evenly. Food at
the outside of the dish absorbs more energy and heats more quickly, so stir from the outside
towards the center. The oven will turn off when you open the door to stir your food.
Arrangement
Arrange unevenly shaped foods, such as chicken pieces or chops, with the thicker, meatier
parts toward the outside of the turntable where they receive more microwave energy. To prevent
overcooking, place thin or delicate parts towards the center of the turntable.
Shielding
Shield food with narrow strips of aluminum foil to prevent overcooking. Areas that need shielding
include poultry wing-tips, the ends of poultry legs, and corners of square baking dishes. Use only
small amounts of aluminum foil. Larger amounts can damage your oven.
Turning
Turn foods over midway through the cooking cycle to expose all parts to the microwave energy.
This is especially important with large items such as roasts.
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat and continue to cook for a few minutes
after the oven stops. Let foods stand to complete the cooking process, especially foods such as
roasts and whole vegetables. Roasts need this time to complete cooking in the center without
overcooking the outer areas. All liquids, such as soup or hot chocolate should be shaken or
stirred when cooking is complete. Let liquids stand a moment before serving. When heating
baby food, stir well and test the temperature before serving.

2009-08-27 �� 11:21:38
Adding moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food that is uneven in moisture content
should be covered or allowed to stand so that the heat disperses evenly. Add a small amount of
water to dry food to help it cook.
Venting
After covering a dish with plastic wrap, vent the plastic wrap by turning back one corner to let
excess steam escape.
Cooking meat
Place the meat fat side down on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Use narrow
strips of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or thin pieces of meat. Check the temperature in several
places before letting the meat stand the recommended time.
The following temperatures are the removal temperatures. The temperature of the food will rise during
standing time.

cooking guide
Cooking eggs You can use your microwave oven to cook eggs. Cook them until they are just set as they become tough if
they are overcooked.
WARNING
Never cook eggs in their shells, and never warm up hard-boiled eggs in their shells as they may
explode. Always pierce whole eggs to keep them from bursting.
Cooking vegetables
Vegetables should be washed prior to cooking. Usually, no extra water is needed. If dense vegetables such
as potatoes, carrots and green beans are being cooked, add about ¼ cup water.
Small vegetables (sliced carrots, peas, lima beans, etc.) will cook faster than larger ones.
Whole vegetables, such as potatoes, acorn squash or corn on the cob, should be arranged in a circle
on the turntable before cooking. They will cook more evenly if turned over halfway through the cooking
process.
Always place vegetables such as asparagus and broccoli with the stems pointing towards the edge of the
dish and the tips toward the center.
When cooking cut vegetables, always cover the dish with a lid or vented microwavable plastic wrap.
Whole, unpeeled vegetables such as potatoes, squash, eggplant, etc., should have their skins pierced in
several spots before cooking to prevent them from bursting.
For a more even cooking result, stir or rearrange whole vegetables halfway through the cook time.
Generally, the denser the food, the longer the standing time. (The standing time refers to the time necessary
for dense, large foods and vegetables to finish cooking after they come out of the oven.) A baked potato
can stand on the counter for five minutes before cooking is completed, while a dish of peas can be served
immediately.
