Question and Answer on How to Bake in Microwave Oven
Below are asked by users on how to bake in microwave oven over time.
Q. What is the difference between Microwave and Microwave Convection Oven:
Answer: A Microwave Oven is a basic gadget, primarily used for heating of food. It throws horizontal micro-waves which speeds up the heating process of food.
A microwave oven is an electrical appliance that produces electromagnetic radiation through microwave frequencies. This release of electromagnetic radiation makes it possible to heat food within the microwave vacuum. It triggers dielectric heating. Dielectric heating is the introduction of polar molecules into an object (in this case food) which rotates and produces thermal energy in a process.
Microwave Convection Oven on the other hand is an upgrade of the Microwave Oven. This upgrade comes with the added advantage of pressure-air-circulation of heat into the food making it hotter with a better penetration of heat into all parts of the food. This means that there will be a proportionate heat temperature in all parts of the food. This upgrade equates Microwave Convection Oven with a basic Oven.
It allows food to cook more evenly in less time and at a lower heat temperature than in a basic Microwave Oven.
Q. How to use Microwave Oven?
Answer: There are mainly two things you can do with a Microwave Oven. There are: cooking, and heating.

Make use of a microwave friendly container (example: microwaveable plastic container, ceramic, glass dish) to get the job done. Make sure you monitor your time so you don’t spoil the food, because microwave convector bakes really fast with the help of its heat circulation fan system.

Q. Can Aluminium be used in microwave oven?
Answer: I would advise against using any form of Aluminium or any metal object at that in the microwave for two major reasons.
- It can start a fire in your oven. Aluminium foils are light materials than can easily burn in the process of baking. You can safely use a baking pan just to save your energy and reduce the risk of reducing your meal to ash.
- If your food is fully wrapped with an Aluminuim material, microwave will not be able to reach the food. Aliminium will not allow the wave signature from your microwave to penetrate it and heat your food. I will still advice that you use the oven dish to cook your food or a pan to bake.
