FOOD CHARACTERISTICS Quantity: The amount of food placed in a microwave oven has a direct effect on the cooking time. Small amounts of food or liquid require less cooking time than larger amounts of the same substance. As quantity increases, concentration decreases.
Covering: Covering speeds cooking time, retains moisture, tenderizes, insures even cooking and prevents spattering. Casserole lids or plastic wrap are used for a tighter seal. Vent plastic by turning back one edge at the side of dish to form a narrow slot where excess steam can escape.
Guide for Cooking Meats Roasts, chops, hamburgers and small cuts of tender meat cook beautifully in the microwave oven. Most roasts can be cooked rare, medium rare or even well done in less than one hour. Less tender cuts of meat such as pot roast can be simmered fork tender in a sauce or gravy.
Chicken is one of the most popular foods and microwaving chicken is one of the best uses of your microwave oven. Chicken stays juicy and tender in the microwave oven. However, juiciness prevents browning because chicken crisps and browns only when the skin dries out enough to change color.
Eggs cook differently by microwave. The high fat content of egg yolks absorb energy, so yolks cook faster than whites. It's easy to poach eggs in a microwave oven, but if you want soft yolks, remove eggs from the oven before whites are completely cooked. A brief standing time allows whites to set without overcooking yolks.

Because of their shorter cooking time, casseroles cooked in the microwave oven generally need less liquid. Casseroles with cream and cheese sauces, or meats which need slower cooking to tenderize, cook best on power level 40.
Cooked rice and pasta reheat easily in the microwave oven without loss of flavor or texture. No extra water is needed to prevent sticking or drying, so there's no danger of overcooking rice and pasta or thinning sauces.
COOKING GUIDE (CONTINUED) CEREALS Microwaveable hot cereals can be cooked directly in the cereal bowl and make cleaning up easy. CONVENIENCE FOODS Frozen Foods A large variety of frozen foods, special dishes and dinners are available and the selections continue to increase. The market is changing rapidly, therefore it is impossible to list the foods and types available and recommend cooking procedures.
• Breads and rolls should be reheated to the point where they are warm to the touch. Overheating or overcooking makes bread tough and rubbery. • When making yeast bread in a microwave oven, choose a recipe with cornmeal, whole wheat flour, or rye flour to achieve a richer color.
