MICROWAVE COOKING
FOOD CHARACTERISTICS
COOKING TECHNIQUES
To cook/defrost food in a microwave oven, the microwave
energymustbeabletopassthroughthecontainertopenetrate
the food.Therefore it is important to choose suitable cookware.
Round/ovaldishesarepreferabletosquare/oblongonesasthe
food in the corners tends to overcook.
It is important to turn, rearrange or stir food to ensure even
heating.
Standing time is necessary after cooking as it enables the heat
to disperse equally throughout the food.
Composition Foods high in fat or sugar (e.g. Christmas pudding, mince pies) require less heating time. Care should be taken as overheating
can lead to fire.
Density Food density will affect the amount of cooking time needed. Light porous foods, such as cakes or bread, cook more quickly than
heavy, dense foods, such as roasts and casseroles.
Quantity The cooking time must be increased as the amount of food placed in the oven increases (e.g. four potatoes will take longer to
cook than two).
Size Small foods and small pieces cook faster than large ones, as microwaves can penetrate from all sides to the centre. For even
cooking make all the pieces the same size.
Shape Foods which are irregular in shape, such as chicken breasts or drumsticks, take longer to cook in the thicker parts. Round
shapes cook more evenly than square shapes when microwave cooking.
Temperature
of food
The initial temperature of food affects the amount of cooking time needed. Chilled foods will take longer to cook than food at
room temperature. Cut into foods with fillings (e.g. jam doughnuts) to release heat or steam.
Arrange Place the thickest parts of food towards the outside of the dish (e.g. chicken drumsticks).
Cover Use vented microwave cling film or a suitable lid.
Pierce Foods with a shell, skin or membrane must be pierced in several places before cooking or reheating as steam will build up and
may cause food to explode, (e.g. potatoes, fish, chicken, sausages).
Important: Eggs should not be heated using microwave power as they may explode, even after cooking has ended (e.g.
poached, hard boiled).
Stir, turn and
rearrange
For even cooking it is essential to stir, turn and rearrange food during cooking.Always stir and rearrange from the outside
towards the centre.
Stand Standing time is necessary after cooking to enable the heat to disperse equally throughout the food.
Shield Some areas of food being defrosted may become warm. Warm areas can be shielded with small pieces of foil, which reflect
microwaves (e.g. legs and wings on a chicken).

Comments
Aluminium foil/containers ✔ / ✘ Small pieces of aluminium foil can be used to shield food from overheating. Keep foil at least 2 cm
from the oven walls, as arcing may occur. Foil containers are not recommended unless specified
by the manufacturer. Follow instructions carefully.
Browning dishes ✔ Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Do not exceed heating times given. Be very careful
as these dishes become very hot.
China and ceramics ✔ / ✘ Porcelain, pottery, glazed earthenware and bone china are usually suitable, except for those with
metallic decoration.
Glassware e.g. Pyrex ® ✔ Care should be taken if using fine glassware as it can break or crack if heated suddenly.
Metal ✘ It is not recommended to use metal cookware when using microwave power as it will arc, which
can lead to fire.
Plastic/polystyrene
e.g. fast food containers
✔ Care must be taken as some containers warp, melt or discolour at high temperatures.
Cling film ✔ Should not touch the food and must be pierced to let the steam escape.
Freezer/roasting bags ✔ Must be pierced to let steam escape. Ensure bags are suitable for microwave use. Do not use
plastic or metal ties, as they may melt or catch fire due to the metal arcing.
Paper - plates, cups and
kitchen paper
✔ Only use for warming or to absorb moisture. Care must be taken as overheating may cause fire.
Straw and wooden
containers
✔ Always attend the oven when using these materials as overheating may cause fire.
Recycled paper and
newspaper
✘ May contain extracts of metal which will cause arcing and may lead to fire.
Your oven can be programmed for up to 90 minutes. The
input unit of cooking time varies from 15 seconds to five
minutes. It depends on the total length of the cooking time
as shown in the table.
MICROWAVE POWER LEVELS
Your oven has 6 power levels:
900 W/HIGH Used for fast cooking or reheating (e.g. soup,
casseroles, canned food, hot beverages, vegetables, fish).
630 W Used for longer cooking of dense foods such as roast
joints,meatloafandplatedmeals,alsoforsensitivedishessuch
as cheese sauce and sponge cakes. At this reduced setting,
the sauce will not boil over and food will cook evenly without
over cooking at the sides.
450WFordensefoodswhichrequirealongcookingtimewhen
cooked conventionally, (e.g. beef dishes) it is advisable to use
this power setting to ensure the meat will be tender.
270W/DEFROSTTodefrost,selectthispowersetting,toensure
