How a microwave oven works
Microwaves are high-frequency electromagnetic waves; the energy released enables food to
be cooked or reheated without changing either the form or the colour.
You can use your microwave oven to:
1. The microwaves generated by the
magnetron reflected at cavity and are
distributed uniformly as the food rotates
on the turntable. The food is thus cooked
2. The microwaves are absorbed by the
food up to a depth of about 1 inch
(2.5 cm). Cooking then continues as the
heat is dissipated within the food.
3. Cooking times vary according to the
container used and the properties of the

As the centre of the food is cooked by heat
dissipation, cooking continues even when
you have taken the food out of the oven.
Standing times specified in recipes and in
this booklet must therefore be respected to
