Microwaving Ground Rules that We All Need to Know

Do not use traditional metal cookware. This can cause sparks in your oven and not cook or heat the food properly. Do not try recipes that require a lot of water. Recipes that require a lot of water such as past don’t cook well in a microwave. Arrange foods so that they cook evenly. Face the thickest parts of your food outwards toward the oven walls for quicker heating. Arrange foods of the same size and shape, such as potatoes, in a circle or square with space between them and no item in the center. Cover dishes: To avoid splatter, cut down on cooking time, and prevent food from drying up, cover your dish. Frequently stir, turn, and rotate foods. This will ensure an even distribution of heat. Cut foods into small pieces, if possible. Small pieces take less time to cook than large ones.
