An essential component of the modern kitchen, the microwave oven is one of life simple’s pleasures – a hot and tasty dish can be prepared in just a few minutes! 🍜
As with all food, it’s important to ensure that the dish is evenly cooked. If you’re thinking of leaving your food uncovered in the microwave to speed up the cooking process, that’s a no-no. The dish should be covered, as the steam formed under the cover will help kill bacteria and ensure even cooking.
TIP: Watch out for ‘cold spots’ in the food. Stir the food midway while cooking to ensure that the whole dish is evenly cooked. For more food safety tips, visit bit.ly/sfafoodsafety.
