Microwave Cooking for One
It's fast! Generally, cooking food takes one-fourth the time in the microwave than it takes in your conventional oven.
It's cool! Cooking heat is created within the food, so your kitchen does not become overheated.
It's tastier! Natural flavors are retained in the food.
It's nutritional! Reduced cooking time means more vitamins and minerals are retained.
It's economical! You only cook the amount of food you need. Your microwave uses less electrical wattage than with your conventional oven, and you're cooking for a shorter amount of time.
It's convenient! You can cook right in the serving dish, on paper plates and in paper towels. There is less mess to clean up after you're done.
Anyone who has tried to reduce a recipe to a small amount knows that it is not an easy task, but to double or triple a recipe is a fairly simple feat. The tough reducing part has been done for you already in Microwave Cooking for One; the easy job of increasing these recipes to two or three or four servings is up to you.

Many people become frustrated when attempting to cook in the microwave because they do not realize that most recipes for microwave ovens are written for the 700-watt oven (the industry standard). However, you have a different wattage microwave oven. What do you do? Check out our easy-to-use Conversion Charts to convert the microwave time you need to use to cook your food. Don't know what wattage oven you have? Check out What Wattage is My Oven? for instructions on how to determine your microwave oven's wattage.
