Here are the things you need to keep in mind when using a microwave oven to ensure safety and efficiency when cooking food:

first

Follow safety rules when cooking in the microwave

  1. Do not use metal containers as microwaves may come off causing sparks and fire.

  2. Do not heat water or other liquids for more than the time specified by the manufacturer or according to recipes. Overheating can happen when the water in the cup is boiled for too long. At that time, the water looks normal, but when taken out it will boil and shoot up from the cup.

  3. Do not heat the water twice in the microwave because it increases the risk of overheating. However, sugary water or coffee will reduce this risk.

  4. Never operate the microwave oven with the door damaged or not sealed. 

  5. Do not operate the microwave oven while it is empty. This may also ignite and cause a fire.

  6. It is best to stand about 1 meter away from the microwave oven to ensure safety when the oven is operating.

  7. Be sure to use microwave-safe plastic lids to cover food while cooking, if the recipe calls for it. Leaving a corner open helps the steam to rise, without accumulating dangerous pressure.

  8. Make sure that any utensils you put in the microwave, whether made of glass, porcelain, or plastic, are labeled Microwaveable .

Pay attention to food when cooking in the microwave

  1. Meat after defrosting in the microwave should be cooked immediately because the microwave has partially cooked the food, otherwise bacteria can multiply in it.
  2. When cooking in a microwave oven, the outside of the food usually cooks faster. So arrange foods, such as fish fillets, so that the thinner part is in the center of the rotating plate.
  3. Food coming out of the microwave is usually very hot, so be careful using tongs or gloves. If food is covered during cooking, leave the lid open for a while so that the steam doesn't burn your hands when you open it.
  4. Most microwave ovens have concentrated hot spots, so if you eat or drink something straight out of the microwave, some of the hot spots could burn you.
  5. Conversely, there are also cold places where the food is not hot enough to kill bacteria. Remember to stir carefully to avoid this phenomenon.

Check the tool before using it in the microwave

You can check if your home plate is microwave safe by simply trying the following.

Put a cup full of water and the dish you want to try in the microwave. Heat at 100% power for 1 minute. If the water has heated up and the dish is still cool, it is safe to use in the microwave. If the dish is hot, it contains lead or metal and should not be used in the oven.

Clean the microwave after every use

  1. For easy microwave cleaning, place two tablespoons of lemon juice or lemon slices in a cup or bowl of water, and place the cup in a measuring cup. Turn on the oven on high for 2-3 minutes, until the solution boils, then turn off.
  2. Continue to leave the cup in the oven without opening the door for another 5 minutes and then take the cup out.
  3. You can then easily wipe the oven clean with a dry paper towel.
