For best results, some recipes call for different cook powers. The lower the cook power, the slower the
cooking. Each level stands for a different percentage of cook power. Many microwave cookbook recipes tell
you by number, percent, or name which cook power to use.
The following chart gives the percentage of cook power each level stands for, and the cook power name usually
used. It also tells you when to use each cook power. Follow recipe or food package instructions if available.
NOTE: Refer to a reliable cookbook for cooking times.
