indicated and add more as needed. Food severely overcooked

paper towels, wax paper, microwave plastic wrap

meat or poultry to prevent overcooking
before dense, thick
areas are cooked thoroughly.

both from top to bottom and from the center of the dish to the
o Use standing time. Always allow food to stand in or out of the
oven after cooking power stops. Standing time after defrosting
or cooking allows the temperature
to evenly spread throughout
the food, improving the cooking results. For inside oven
standing time, you can program a "d' power stage of cooking
cycle, See Multiple Stage Cooking,

temperatures have been reached,
Doneness signs include:
- Food steams throughout, not just at edge,
