Microwave cookery is cooking using electromagnetic waves in a microwave powered by electricity. Microwaves activates the water molecules of the food, causing heat by friction which cooks or reheats the food. It is a very quick and easy method of cooking. Cooking in microwave is clean and efficient, quick boiling and mixing, no fermenting, less oil consumption and shorter cooking time.
 

5 Basic tips for beginners while using microwave:

5. Don't forget to read the instruction manual or recipe and follow the cooking time, temperature etc.
