Cooking Safely in Microwave oven

Microwave ovens can cook unevenly food and leave "cold spots," allowing harmful bacteria to survive. Use the following tips to prevent any health risk.

- Arrange food items evenly in a covered dish and add some liquid if needed. 
- Cover the dish with a lid or plastic wrap leaving 2 cm distance between food and cover. Loosen or vent the lid or wrap to let steam escape.
- Do not cook large cuts of meat on high power (100%). Large cuts of meat should be cooked on medium power (50%) for longer periods.
- Stir or rotate food midway through the microwaving time to eliminate cold spots and for more even cooking.
- Never partially cook food in microwave and store it for later use. Immediately transfer the microwaved food to the other heat source.
