A microwave is an electric oven that uses electromagnetic radiation set in the microwave frequency range to quickly heat and cook food.  Microwaves are popularly used to reheat previously cooked foods, though unlike conventional ovens, microwaves cannot brown, caramelize, bake, or fry food. Thus, microwaves have limited uses in professional cooking. Microwaves are included in most kitchens with designs that range from countertop to over-the-range and built-in variations. External variations can vary from 10"x18"x14" (25x46x36 cm) on the smaller side, to 14"x24"x20" (36x61x51 cm) on the larger side. Microwave wattage is equivalent to power, with higher wattages cooking food faster and more evenly.

What is a convection microwave?

A convection microwave not only heats up the inside of the food, but also browns and crisps the outside of the food. It combines the speed of a microwave with the full cooking feature of a standard oven.

How do microwaves work?

A microwave, or microwave oven, heats food via electromagnetic radiation (microwave frequency). Microwaves typically feature a turntable that moves the food around to ensure an even heat. The heat process of the microwave is the movement of water molecules back and forth to produce thermal energy.

How do you clean a microwave?

A recommended way of cleaning a microwave is with white vinegar. The vinegar and water, when heated, work to loosen up the food stains inside the microwave. Other tools needed for this process include: water, a bowl to hold the vinegar, a cloth, and a wooden spoon. Pour one cup of vinegar and one cup of water into a bowl and place it in the microwave with the wooden spoon in the mixture. Turn the microwave on for about 5 minutes and remove the bowl. Use the cloth to clean down the inside.
