Tips for cooking with a microwave

We’ve prepared some tips to help you master cooking with your microwave and ensure you get the recipes right the first time.

  • Cut up large food to speed up cooking time
  • Pierce ingredients that have skin, such as sausages or potatoes
  • Spread out food in a single layer, with the thickest food positioned away from the centre
  • Once your food is cooked, close the microwave door and let it rest. This will give it the time it needs to complete the cooking process.
