The methods all make use of a microwave oven, and that might be either a simple microwave heating device, or one that includes the additional techniques of steaming, crisping, or grilling.
Although microwave cooking is in general use, it is usually acknowledged as having more limited scope than conventional ovens. That said, for those tasks for which it is particularly useful, it is both efficient in energy terms and in the time it takes to complete its tasks.
The basic microwave oven heats by the movement of water in the foods. This movement generates the heat that is used for cooking. This technique cannot in itself cause browning, so the above-mentioned combination ovens have been designed with additional heating elements grilling.
Like conventional ovens, some foods are dried out at their surface during cooking, so both the addition of water and steaming are commonly used. Additional crisping plates are used to make foods like pizza and roast potatoes crisp on their surface. Containers for Microwaving[ edit ] Metal Containers must never be used conjunction with microwaves.
Microwaves are reflected by any kind of metal, and it can be quite a violent event if the power levels are high. Clearly, food in a metal container would not receive any energy and so apart from the dangers mentioned, the food would just not heat well. This comment also applies to materials that contain traces of metal, such as some glasses and porcelains, and in particular items that have an obvious metallic trim or decoration.
In general, containers made for microwave use are marked as Microwave Safe. Other items without marking can of course be used but a test is needed to check whether or not they are safe. The test is to fill a cup with water and place the container and it in the microwave to heat on high for a couple of minutes; if by the time the water is hot, the empty container remains cool, then it is probably transparent to microwaves and might well be safe to use; the other thing to consider is whether or not the container can sustain the conducted heat from hot food, and whether or not the additional grilling functions of a combi microwave will cause it damage.
That said, most table plates and Pyrex, stoneware, and earthenware containers without elaborate decoration will be found suitable. Cling Film improvised lids. Steam vents must be made in any lid or covering used in the microwave, to avoid the build up of pressure.
