Function setting is mainly menu, such as steaming fish, steaming spareribs, cooking rice and other different heating methods. In time setting, you set the heating time. How to use the intelligent microwave oven, just put the food to be heated in the microwave oven, and then set the menu and time. It can be said that it is a very convenient microwave oven to operate.
Using skills of microwave oven
1、 Microwave oven is not easy to make food surface coloring, can be used before cooking seasoning on the food surface, make it dark brown.
2、 The temperature of food heated by microwave oven is very high, and it is easy to evaporate water. When cooking, the food should be covered with heat-resistant plastic film or heat-resistant glass cover to keep moisture. It is easy to overcooke chicken wing tip, chicken breast, fish head, fish tail or corner of cake, and even cooking can be achieved by covering with aluminum foil.
3、 At the end of heating, put food aside for a period of time or add some seasonings to some foods (for example, after cooking poultry meat, you can pour emulsified oil or sauce, and then sprinkle some chili powder, bread crumbs, etc.) to achieve the satisfactory effect that heating can not achieve.
4、 Food should be evenly arranged, not piled up in a pile, so that the food can heat evenly. Small pieces of food ripen faster than large pieces of food, it is best to cut the food into small pieces less than 5cm. The more regular the shape of food is, the more uniform the microwave heating is. In general, the food should be cut into pieces with appropriate size and uniform shape.
5、 If food has a hard skin, it must be peeled off before cooking.
6、 The higher the temperature of the food itself, the shorter the cooking time; the heating time in real days is shorter than that in winter. Cooking thick and dense food is more, porous food takes a long time to heat. The food with high water content is easy to absorb more microwave, and the cooking time is shorter than that of low water content food.
7、 When cooking food in the microwave, it’s better to cook under than over. The color and flavor of the dishes will not be affected by the microwave cooking.
8、 When cooking in the microwave oven, the amount of salt should be reduced as much as possible, so as to avoid the cooked food being cooked outside and inside.

If the plastic does not indicate a poor lunch box, heating is easy to dissolve substances into the meal, which may release some harmful ingredients when heated, which will pollute food and endanger human health. Metal utensils can’t be used, because the iron, aluminum, stainless steel, enamel and other utensils put into the oven will produce electric sparks and reflect microwave when heating, which will damage the furnace body and can’t heat food.
3. Cover and heat.
When heating, in order to prevent excessive evaporation of water, be sure to cover the heating. In general, microwave heating box meal time control in about two minutes. If the food is not thoroughly hot, you can put it into the microwave again and then turn it for two times.

One is that plastic is easy to soften and deform when heated; the other is that ordinary plastics will release toxic substances, contaminate food and endanger human health.
3. Do not heat the meat until it is half cooked and then heat it in the microwave oven
Because the bacteria can still grow in the semi cooked food, it is impossible to kill all the bacteria in the microwave oven for the second time due to the short time. Frozen meat must be thawed in the microwave oven, and then heated for cooked food.
4. Avoid using metal utensils
Because of the iron, aluminum, stainless steel, enamel and other metal utensils put into the oven, when the microwave oven is heated, it will produce electric sparks and reflect the microwave, which not only damages the furnace body but also makes immature food, and in serious cases, it is easy to cause fire.
5. Avoid refreezing meat thawed in microwave oven
After thawing meat in the microwave oven, the outer layer of meat has actually been heated at a low temperature. At this temperature, bacteria can reproduce. Although the reproduction can be stopped by re freezing, the living bacteria can not be killed. The meat that has been thawed in the microwave oven must be heated until it is fully cooked if it is frozen in the refrigerator again.
6. Do not use closed containers
When heating liquid, the wide mouth container should be used, because the heat generated by food heating in the closed container is not easy to emit, which makes the pressure in the container too high, which is easy to cause explosion accident. In addition, when boiling food with shell, the shell membrane must be punctured with a needle or chopsticks in advance, so as to avoid bursting and splashing after heating and contaminating the furnace wall.
