1. Place the empty cookware in the microwave oven.
2. Measure 1 cup of water in e glass measuring cup and place it in the oven beside the cookware.
3. Microwave on 100% power for 1 minute. If the dish is warm, it should not be used for microwave cooking.

Plastic
• When using plastic wrap as a cover, make sure that
the dish is deep enough so the plastic wrap does not

plastic wrap wherever the wrap touches the food.
• Place plastic wrap loosely over the top of the dish
and secure it by pressing the wrap to the sides of
the dish.
• Vent by turning back one corner of the plastic wrap.
This will allow excess steam to escape.
• Use plastic dishes, cups, semi-rigid freezer
containers, and plastic bags only for short time
cooking. Use these with care because the
plastic may soften from the heat of the food.

napkins, and paper plates with no metallic trim or
design can be used in your oven.
• Refer to the manufacturer's label for use of any
paper product in the microwave oven.

produces uneven cooking. Avoid metal skewers,
