Microwaves Microwaves are. live TV or radio waves, high frequency non-ionizing, elecfromagnetic waves, but of a shorter wavelength. A vacuum &be, called the "magnehvn" generates these microwaves,which are guided into the oven cavity through a "wave guidew. On being generated, the microwaves are reflected by the metal walls of the oven cavity and are conducted into the food penetrating through the container holding the food and getting absorbed, causing the water molecules to vibrate at a very high jkpemy, releasing heat, which cooks the food. As the "agitationn of water molecules taka place th;mghout the food mass, simultan--ly & uniformly, food is cooked evenly. However. microwaves can (effectively) penetrate the food up to 1.5 inches (4 Cms) in thichness. Hence, pieces raw food are bigger than inches. would remain under cooked at the core, since that portion will be dependent for cooking on the heat mceived through "wnduction"fiom the segments nearer to the &aces.

Defmting Deforsting in microwave ovens is a speedy. hygienic and healthy pmess. m e n the auto defrost function is used, the microwave energy in the oven is automatically cycled on and off to allow rest periods/standing time in between short bursts of microwave energy. These short gentle bursts e m that thawing is carried out at a uniform rate so that food thaws without getting cooked. Thawing refers to the process of bringing down raw/partially-cooked products frozen from a temperature of - 1 8 ' ~ room temperahue. Unlike to conventional methods, microwave defrosting prevents the growth of bacteria. Nutrients do not get leaked away and food retains its natural colour, texture andflavow. In a microwave oven you can simply def;ost, then cook in a simple operation at a moment's notice. Foods defrost best at 20%power level. T i s on Defrosting :

Reheating Unlike in conventional cooking, reheating in the microwave oven is quick, effiient andmakes food piping hot. Food reheats without any loss of quality or texture, tasting freshly cooked, notjust warmed over. Care must be taken to avoid additional cooking. Meats should never be heated at high powe,: Main dishes taken out of the refigerator are best reheated at medium power. Individual serving on a plate are best reheated at a lower power setting.
