Tips for daily use

Sihainet: microwave oven is one of the household appliances we use everyday. We may have neglected many small details in the ordinary use of microwave oven. Maybe you are used to throwing the packed food together with the plastic lunch box into the microwave oven for heating, which is absolutely necessary. Because plastic containers deform during heating and release toxic substances to contaminate food, cancer will be caused in the long run. It should also be noted that metal containers are not desirable.

Mistakes in using microwave oven

First, the misunderstanding of heating time

People often thaw or heat the food in microwave oven, sometimes forget to take it out and put it for several hours. If you forget to take it out for more than 3 hours, you'd better not throw it away, so as not to cause food poisoning. Moreover, the food which has been heated for a long time is easy to dry due to the rapid loss of water diversion. Besides the poor taste, the nutritional value will also be greatly reduced.

Second, the misunderstanding of cooking containers

Maybe you are used to throwing the packed food together with the plastic lunch box into the microwave oven for heating, which is absolutely necessary. Because plastic containers deform during heating and release toxic substances to contaminate food, cancer will be caused in the long run. In addition, it should also be noted that metal containers are not desirable, because sparks will be generated when the microwave oven is heated, which will not only damage the furnace body but also cause explosion. We should use the special container of microwave oven to heat food, and do not cover the container tightly in the process of heating, because the heat generated by food heating in the closed container is not easy to dissipate, so that the pressure in the container is too high, which is easy to cause explosion accidents.

Third, the taboo of heated food

It is better not to fry food in microwave oven, because high temperature will make oil splash and cause fire. If there is a fire in the oven, do not open the door of microwave oven, cut off the power supply first, and then open the door after the fire goes out. In addition, when cooking food with shells, the shells should be punctured first to avoid explosion.

Fourth, mistakes in freezing or heating

Put the half cooked meat into the microwave oven and heat it until it is fully cooked. Although the cooking time can be shortened, the bacteria will still grow when the food is half cooked. When the second time is heated in the microwave oven, the time is too short to kill all the bacteria. In this case, you can thaw the frozen meat in the microwave first, and then heat it to cooked food, so you can eat it at ease.

Fifthly, is it necessary to cover when cooking food in microwave oven?

Yes. When cooking with a stove, we usually cover the pot when we stew the food. That's to get a unique burnt flavor, but the microwave oven can't. What we don't know is that in the process of stewing, a large amount of vitamin in the food is lost, which results in this flavor. Microwave oven can reduce the loss of nutrition to the maximum. If you want to lock the nutrition of meat to the maximum extent, you'd better put the meat on the stove and cook it for a while, then put it in the microwave oven and heat it to maturity.

Sixthly, the wrong place

As the microwave oven has radiation, so do not put it in the bedroom, should be placed in a ventilated place as far as possible. And also with television, radio away from a certain distance, otherwise it will affect the audio-visual effect. After opening the micro furnace, it is better to keep a distance of 1 meter from it, and do not look directly with your eyes. Otherwise, it will cause dizziness, dizziness, fatigue, emaciation, hair loss and other symptoms.

Seventh, can food be sterilized by microwave?

Correct. After microwave heating of food, bacteria and viruses can be eliminated. But we need to treat raw and cooked food differently. Cooked food should be microwave heated for at least 10 minutes before serving, so that the bacteria in the food can be completely killed. Raw and frozen ingredients take longer to heat.

Eighth, don't microwave food?

Mistake. We must treat frozen food differently from fresh food. It won't be a big problem to use microwave to heat these foods, but pay attention to the heating method. For those ingredients we stock in the refrigerator or freezer, the treatment is the same as leftovers. Some people may think that the ingredients that are reheated after freezing will become insipid, but in fact, there is no change in nutrition.
