  • Page 4 Author’s Note I have been using a microwave oven for 25 years, mainly to heat up leftovers, tea and coffee and defrosting meat, poultry, seafood and bread. It was only when I was asked by Samsung to come up with a collection of my favourite recipes and some diehard “sure shots” that I realized the versatility and extraordinary potential of the new Samsung Microwave.

    Pro-steamer Samsung’s unique cookware enables healthy and low-fat cooking by using steam. Steam cooking in the microwave oven (MWO) usually makes the surface of food dry. To solve this weak-point, Samsung came up with the Pro-steamer. The Pro-steamer consists of two parts — a bottom plate and a stainless steel lid.

    Multi-spit Samsung’s Multi-spit allows you to enjoy barbecuing without the hassle of cleaning the inside of the MWO. The Multi-spit is Samsung’s unique accessory for barbecuing — far more useful and convenient than other similar accessories. It can provide all kinds of skewer-styled cooking, not only Western-style food like Roast Chicken but also Indian food like tikkas.

    Microwaves The MWO is a new cooking appliance, and since quite a few people are not aware of its mechanism, given below is a short note on how it works. Microwave energy actually penetrates food, heating water, fat, and sugar molecules in food. The microwave rays cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly.
