COOKING POULTRY
Place the poultry on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a 
microwave-safe dish and cover with wax paper to prevent 
spattering. Use aluminum foil to shield the bone tips, thin 
pieces of meat, or areas that may start to overcook.
Check the temperature in several places before letting the 
poultry stand the recommended time.

(7).
Turning
Turn foods over midway through the cooking cycle 
to expose all parts to the microwave energy. This is 
especially important with large items such as roasts.
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat 
and continue to cook for a few minutes after the oven 
stops. Let foods stand to complete the cooking process, 
especially foods such as roasts and whole vegetables. 
Roasts need this time to complete cooking in the center 
without overcooking the outer areas. All liquids, such as 
soup or hot chocolate should be shaken or stirred when 
cooking is complete. Let liquids stand a moment before 
serving. When heating baby food, stir well and test the 
temperature before serving.
Adding moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food 
that is uneven in moisture content should be covered or 
allowed to stand so that the heat disperses evenly. Add a 
small amount of water to dry food to help it cook.
Venting
After covering a dish with plastic wrap, vent the plastic 
wrap by turning back one corner to let excess steam 
escape.
COOKING MEAT
Place the meat fat side down on a microwave-safe 
roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Use narrow strips 
of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or thin pieces of 
meat. Check the temperature in several places before 
letting the meat stand the recommended time.
The following temperatures are the removal temperatures. 
The temperature of the food will rise during standing time.
