Microwave cooking involves cooking food using electromagnetic waves powered by electricity. The waves activate water molecules of the food, causing heat by friction which cooks or reheats the food. It is an extremely easy and quick method of cooking.

8 Basic tips for beginners while using microwave :

1. Your microwave’s user manual will suggest cooking times for various dishes and cooking tasks. Don't forget to follow the cooking time, temperature etc.
2. The foods will be hot post cooking, so use heatproof mittens while removing it.
3. Never operate a microwave if the door doesn't close or is broken.
4. Try to keep food as uniform as possible. Never pile food on top of one another. In a microwave, food always cooks evenly when spaced apart.
5. Reheat/cook in small portions to allow for more even heating.
6. Make sure any glass, plastic containers, you use are labelled 'microwave safe'.
7. If you are covering something with a lid, make sure to leave a portion uncovered, to let the steam pass.
8. Clean it often so, that there are no food particles left in any corners.
