Variable
power levels add flexibility
to
microwave
_ooking. The power levels on
the microwave
oven can be compared
to
the surt_ace units on a range. High (power
level 10) or tull power is the tastest way to
cook and gives you 100% power. Each
power level gives you microwave
energy a
certain percent
of dae time. Power level 7
is microwave
energy 70% of the time.
Power level 3 is energy 30% of the time.
A high setting (10) will cook lhster but
Iood may need more frequent
stirring,
rotating
or turning
over. Most cooking
will be done on High (power level 10).
A lower setting will cook more evenly and
need less stirring or rotating of dae tbod.
Some tbods may have better flavor,
texture
or appearance
if one oftbe lower
settings is used. Use a lower power level
when cooking toods daat have a tendency
m boil over, such as scalloped
pot;ames.
Rest periods
(when the microwave
energy
cycles off) give time tor the lood to
"equalize"
or transfer
heat to the inside
of the tood. An exmnple
of this is shown
with power level 3--flae defi-ost cycle. If
microwave
energy did not cycle off, the
outside of dae tood would cook belore
the inside was defi-osted.
