The food is still not defrosted, hot or
cooked after the end of cooking time .
After the end of cooking time the food
is overheated at the edges but is still
not ready in the middle.
Other things to think about...
• Food items have different shapes and
qualities. They are prepared in
different quantities. Because of this,
the necessary time and power for
defrosting, heating or cooking can
vary. As a rough guide: double the
quantity - almost double the time.
• The microwave creates the heat
directly in the food. Because of this,
all places cannot be heated at the
same time. You must stir or turn the
heated dishes, especially when
preparing larger quantities of food.

heat is distributed more evenly.
