Using your microwave oven saves hours of time and energy. You can use your microwave to prepare everything from appetizers to desserts. The microwave is also energy-efficient, won’t heat up your kitchen, and it helps to retain more nutrients in your foods during the cooking process. In some cases, a microwave is the best way to cook a dish, especially in the case of fish and vegetables, because it steams the food for a better taste and texture.
When cooking on any other power level than HIGH, the oven cooks by cycling power on and off, so the energy has a chance to move through the food without overcooking it. MEDIUM and LOW power are generally used to soften, melt, and defrost foods, while HIGH is usually used for cooking. Carefully follow the recipe when using your microwave and you’ll have beautifully cooked meals each time!
