Why confine your microwave to reheating coffee or tea when you could be cooking a chicken casserole or making a tasty stew in just ten minutes. Many cooking methods burn away important nutrients due to little or no added water, covered cooking, boiling and a short heating time, however foods cooked in a microwave retain their nutritional value better than any other cooking method. In fact some microwave meals are recommended due to their ability to hold onto ingredients essential nutritional values. Some of the benefits of using your microwave include:
Prime cooking operations such as thawing, melting, poaching, boiling, simmering and baking can be carried out in minutes and seconds rather than minutes and hours.
Microwave cookery is safe. There is less risk of accidental skin burns than with a conventional oven due to the fact that the inside of the microwave remains cool during cooking. The microwave oven can also be positioned at a height suitable to individual needs.
Microwaves are very economical to use. They use only about one quarter of the power required to run a conventional oven and cooking times are dramatically shorter. Food can also be cooked and served in one dish, which reduces washing up.
So, if you want to save time and money then this course is for you.
