Cooking Frozen Food In A Microwave

Some frozen foods can be cooked in the microwave, but make sure to closely follow the instructions specified on the packaging.

It’s important to know your microwave wattage before cooking from frozen. This is usually stated on the door of the microwave or in the manual and will help make sure you follow the recommended directions.

Once cooked, test the food with a thermometer to make sure it’s the right temperature or with a knife to make sure it’s cooked thoroughly all the way through. An easy way of doing this is with a meat thermometer.
