shields the food from microwave energy on the bottom
and on the sides, causing uneven cooking results. Metal
utensils will also cause arcing and can damage the micro-
waue
ouen.

or metal-banded
dinnerware,

because they will hinder cooking and may cause harmful
arcing. However,
smaller pieces may be used to cover
areas such as poultry legs and wings. Any aluminum foil
used should be at least 1 inch from the side wails of oven.
