Microwave Oven Safety

Food cooked in a microwave oven does not heat uniformly and unwanted bacteria may survive in portions not heated sufficiently.  Follow recommend standing times to reduce this problem and stir your food mid-way through cooking to ensure it is evenly cooked through.

You should regularly clean your microwave to reduce build-up of food and stop microorganism growing in large numbers.  Cook food with a cover to avoid excess splatter.
