Dense foods, such as potatoes, take longer to heat than lighter foods. Foods with a delicate texture should be heated at a low power level to avoid becoming tough.

Altitude and the type of cookware you are using can affect cooking time. When using a new recipe, use the minimum cooking time and check the food occasionally to prevent overcooking.

Foods with a non-porous skin such as potatoes or hot dogs, should be pierced to prevent bursting.

Frying with heating oil or fat is not recommended. Fat and oil can suddenly boil over and cause severe burns.

Some ingredients heat faster than others. For example, the jelly inside a jelly doughnut will be hotter than the dough. Keep this in mind to avoid burns.

Home canning in the microwave oven is not recommended because all harmful bacteria may not be destroyed by the microwave heating process.

Although microwaves do not heat the cookware, the heat from the food is often transferred to the cookware. Always use pot holders when removing food from the microwave and instruct children to do the same.

Making candy in the microwave is not recommended as candy can heat to very high temperatures. Keep this in mind to avoid injury.
