  • Page 32: How A Microwave Oven Works

    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 to: • Defrost • Cook Cooking Principle Important As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking continues even when you have taken the food out of the oven.
  • Page 33: Using Microwave Mode

    USING MICROWAVE MODE Microwaves are high frequency electromagnetic waves. In microwave cooking, microwave energy penetrates food, attracted and absorbed by its water, fat and sugar content. The microwaves cause the molecules in the food to move rapidly. The rapid movement of these molecules creates friction and the resulting heat cooks the food.
