How the Microwave Oven Works Microwaves are a form of energy similar to radio and television waves and ordinary daylight.

WARNING Please ensure cooking times are correctly set as over cooking may result in FIRE and subsequent DAMAGE to the OVEN. 1 Do not attempt to tamper with, or make any adjustments or repairs to the door, control panel, safety interlock switches or any other part of the oven. It is hazardous for anyone to carry out any service or repair operation which involves the removal of any cover which gives protection against exposure to microwave energy.
Important safety instructions Read carefully and keep for future reference 24 Only use utensils that are suitable for use in microwave ovens. 25 When heating food in plastic or paper containers, keep an eye on the oven due to the possibility of ignition. 26 If smoke is observed, switch off or unplug the appliance and keep the door closed in order to stifle any flames.
Never use metal or metal trimmed utensils in your microwave oven Microwaves cannot penetrate metal. They will bounce off any metal object in the oven and cause arcing, an alarming phenomenon that resembles lightning. Most heat resistant non metallic cooking utensils are safe for use in your microwave oven.
Food characteristics & Microwave cooking Keeping an eye on 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.
Stirring Stirring is one of the most important of all microwaving techniques. In conventional cooking, food is stirred for the purpose of blending. Microwaved food, however, is stirred in order to spread and redistribute heat. Always stir from the outside towards the centre as the outside of the food heats first.
