Cooking guide


Your microwave oven will reheat food in a fraction of the time that conventional ovens hobs
normally take.
Use the power levels and reheating times in the following chart as a guide. The times in the
chart consider liquids with a room temperature of about 65-68 °F or a chilled food with a
temperature of about 41-45 °F.
Arranging and covering
Avoid reheating large items such as joint of
meat - they tend to overcook and dry out
before the centre is piping hot. Reheating
small pieces will be more successful.
Power levels and stirring
Some foods can be reheated using 100 %
power while others should be reheated
using 60 %, 50 % or even 30 %.
Check the tables for guidance.
In general, it is better to reheat food using a
lower power level, if the food is delicate, in
large quantities, or if it is likely to heat up
very quickly (mince pies, for example).
Stir well or turn food over during reheating
for best results. When possible, stir again
before serving.

Reheating liquids

Always allow a standing time of at least 20 seconds after the oven has been switched off to
allow the temperature to even out. Stir during heating, if necessary, and ALWAYS stir after
heating. To prevent eruptive boiling and possible scalding, you should put a spoon or glass
stick into the beverages and stir before, during and after heating.

Take particular care when heating liquids
and baby foods. To prevent eruptive boiling
of liquids and possible scalding, stir before,
during and after heating. Keep them in the
microwave oven during standing time. We
recommend putting a plastic spoon or glass
stick into the liquids. Avoid overheating (and
therefore spoiling) the food. It is preferable
to underestimate cooking time and add
extra heating time, if necessary.
Heating and standing times
When reheating food for the first time, it is
helpful to make a note of the time taken -
for future reference.
Always make sure that the reheated food is
piping hot throughout.
Allow food to stand for a short time after
reheating - to let the temperature even out.
The recommended standing time after
reheating is 2-4 minutes, unless another
time is recommended in the chart.
Take particular care when heating liquids
and baby food. See also the chapter with the
safety precautions.
