Microwave Cooking Tips

Microwave Parts, Repair Help, Videos & Advice

  • Never place metal utensils, dishes, etc. in the microwave
  • Never use metal foil or foil-lined paper products, paper towels that include nylon or synthetic fibers, or newspaper
  • You can use paper plates, paper cups, and paper napkins in the microwave
  • When using plastic roasting or cooking bags in your microwave, make sure to discard the wire twist tie; use a plastic fastener or a piece of string instead
  • To make sure that everything cooks evenly, cut meats and vegetables of the same dish in uniform sizes
  • Stir food a number of times, and turn dishes around, to make sure that food cooks fully and evenly.
  • If you are cooking meat with a large bone in it, remove the bone first; the dense bone may keep the area around it from cooking
  • To get more juice from lemons, limes or other citrus fruit, place fruit it in microwave on high power for 30 seconds
  • Always place paper towels around sandwiches, rolls, or other baked goods; the towels will absorb moisture so that food is not soggy
  • To soften brown sugar that has turned into a hard lump do this: place a piece of dampened paper towel in the box, close the box tightly, and put the whole thing in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds on high
