Setting Up the Microwave Oven
The first order of business after you unpack your new microwave oven is to set the appliance on a flat, dry surface.

Some tips to set up your microwave oven are:
Place it on a dry and flat surface.
Make sure that the vents on the side are not blocked.
Ensure that the glass tray inside the microwave oven is secure before you start.

Precautions to Keep in Mind When Heating Food in the Microwave Oven
Heating food in the microwave oven is a very easy task, but there are a few precautions that you need to keep in mind when heating your food.
1) Never reheat food that is more than four days old.
After four days, the food in the fridge accumulates bacteria that are very harmful to the overall health of the systems so leftovers more than four days old have likely gone very bad or have too many bacteria to be considered safe.
2) Do not pile food in a bowl or plate
If you pile food up in the center of a bowl or plate, it is very likely to start burning from the edges. It is thus advised that you arrange the food in a ring in the bowl and plate to ensure uniform heating.
3) Cover the food with a plastic cover
Covering the food helps prevent the splattering or sticking of the food all over the microwave walls when heated. For this purpose, it is important that you use a thick plastic cover before you start heating.
4) Warm food a little at a time
Even after years of use, you can still not be certain just how much time a certain food requires to heat up. The calculation might be tricky so it is always advised that you heat it up a little at a time. Take the food out of the microwave oven and stir it to see if it is done.
These are just some basic tips, steps, and precautions that you need to follow when you get Orient’s best microwave oven.
