HOW A MICROWAVE OVEN WORKS
You can use your microwave oven to:
1.The microwaves generated by the magnetron reflected at cavity and are distributed uniformly as the food rotates on the turntable. The food is thus cooked evenly.
2.The microwaves are absorbed by the food up to
a depth of about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Cooking then continues as the heat is dissipated within the food.
3.Cooking times vary according to the container used and the properties of the food:
•Quantity and density
•Initial temperature (refrigerated or not)
As the centre of the food is cooked by heat dissipation, cooking continues even when you have taken the food out of the oven.
Standing times specified in recipes and in this booklet must therefore be respected to ensure:
•Even cooking of the food right to the centre
•The same temperature throughout the food
