Features of the Convection Microwave

by Guest on Mar 29, 2011

A convection microwave is a wonderful appliance to have in the kitchen. If you have not heard much about them, you will be interested to know about some of the features of the convection microwave. You probably already know that microwave ovens cook food with great speed because the microwaves are absorbed by fat and water molecules within the food. This means that only the food itself is heated, not the container. A convection microwave utilizes a fan to circulate the hot air to quickly cook food. This also allows the convection microwave to broil, bake, brown, and crisp food in addition to warming and reheating food quickly.

Because a traditional microwave oven isn’t able to brown foods, it is most useful to reheat or warm up foods. Even so, there are often times when there are spots in the food that remain cold or areas that are overdone because of the differing thicknesses of the food. The convection microwave eliminates this problem with the hot air circulation. The air circulates evenly, which prevents hot or cold spots from occurring when using one.

Because it uses both the microwave and convection technologies, the convection microwave can provide the user with fast cooked foods that are have the desired texture and taste. The combination of cooking methods makes a big difference to the speed of cooking. The convection microwave also includes a heating element to heat the air that is circulated. This allows the food to be perfectly browned on the outside while keeping the inside moist. Using a convection microwave, one could roast poultry to perfection in about 2/3 the time it would take in a conventional oven.

Convection microwave ovens can be used to cook healthy meals. By using less oil for cooking than conventional cooking methods, fat content is lower. Steaming foods in the convection microwave means that more of the nutrients are retained and the taste of the food is actually enhanced. Because you know it will take less time than cooking conventionally, you will be more likely to plan home cooked meals if you are using a convection microwave. This could mean less eating out, which will save you money.

Another money-saving feature of the convection microwave is the fact that it uses less energy when cooking than the traditional oven. In a traditional oven, there is a layer of cool air that surrounds food. This means that temperatures need to be higher and cooking times are necessarily longer when using a regular oven. However, with the convection microwave, hot air circulates right next to the food, so that the insulating layer of cool air is dispersed. The circulating air quickly cooks the food, and the convection microwave uses lower temperatures and less time than the regular oven.

One can find a convection microwave with as many or as few additional features as one would like. With options for timed cooking or automatic settings for a variety of foods, one can have whatever is desired in a convection microwave, thus increasing the benefits gained.
