Cooking with the microwave

 

Using the microwave oven is an excellent method of cooking, it is also healthy and fast.

But how does this incredible machine work?

The microwaves are produced by the magnetron, a metal tube that is inside the oven. When we turn it on, the microwaves are flung in many directions and hit the water and fat particles that are inside the food. This action produces heat that cooks the foods.

Cooking with the microwave maintains the nutritional properties of food and enhances its natural flavor.

 

State-of-the-art microwaves integrate numerous types of cooking: not only steam cooking and grilling, but also frying and the possibility of making delicious risottos, like this one!
