Pickles warmed up in the microwave or oven are better than cold fresh pickles from a jar.

Eh mostly just as the title says. Pickles taste better after being heated up in a microwave, oven, toaster oven, etc. When they are warm they are a nice warm salty snack with a soft slightly firm meaty texture and a juicy pop rather than a crunch. They especially make a great snack hot on a cold day with a cup of coffee or hot coco.

No oven, microwave or anything vegan meal ideas

Hi, sorry if this has been asked before (tried searching, can't really find anything) but i need help with some vegan food ideas that don't requier any type of cooking. I am living in a dorm and students aren't allowed anything but a kettle (i use it to cook pasta sometimes so that can be used!) And only food options in our kitchen are made with animal products so i have to DIY my meals most of the time. So any ideas for meals that i could make that aren't salads all the time? Thank you in advance πŸ–€

Microwave ovens don't heat food by operating at a special resonance of water molecules in the food

It's a common misconception that microwaves in a microwave oven excite a natural resonance in water. The frequency of a microwave oven is well below any natural resonance in an isolated water molecule, and in liquid water, those resonances are so smeared out that they're barely noticeable anyway. It's kind of like playing the violin underwaterβ€”the strings won't emit well-defined tones in water because the water impedes their vibrations. Similarly, water molecules don't emit (or absorb) well-defined tones in liquid water because their clinging neighbors impede their vibrations.

Instead of trying to interact through a natural resonance in water, a microwave oven just exposes the water molecules to the intense electromagnetic fields in strong, non-resonant microwaves. The frequency used in microwave ovens (2,450,000,000 cycles per second or 2.45 GHz) is a sensible but not unique choice. Waves of that frequency penetrate well into foods of reasonable size so that the heating is relatively uniform throughout the foods. Since leakage from these ovens makes the radio spectrum near 2.45 GHz unusable for communications, the frequency was chosen in part because it would not interfere with existing communication systems.

Why do people heat up freezer meals in the oven when it’s easier, significantly faster, and typically requires fewer dishes than using a microwave?

Obviously I understand if you don’t have a microwave, but I’ve noticed plently of people who have both appliances and still opt for the oven. I genuinely don’t taste a difference... Am I missing something?

Edit: I should have specified before that I very much understand that certain things should be crisped or browned for optimal taste. But plenty of things do not, and that is what I’m curious about.

Frozen burritos: microwave vs oven

I don't have a kitchen. I don't have a microwave. I do have an XL countertop oven. I know what happens microwaving a premade frozen burrito, and I wanted to experiment with my oven. Following the instructions on the package to preheat 350 degrees I used bake, vent one side of the package, caused the outer wrap to be very hard, the inner layers "uncooked", but the filling heated. Following a mix of package and general online instructions to preheat ~420/450? (I used 425), I used turbo convection, opened the vent to halfway down the burrito, and I placed a little bit of water on the tray - which I think did nothing - all the layers were cooked, fillings cooked, but the wrap still very hard.

My question is why does the wrap become hard and how do I make it moist and almost explode like in a microwave? I am curious about what makes these differences. And if you have any tips using a countertop oven I would appreciate them because I'll be using it a lot.

Edit: I just want to say thank you everyone for contributing! I've learned about my oven, frozen burrito layers, heat & cooking, and ways to eat creatively. It's exactly what I came here to learn and more. To your future kitchen experiments to keep your eyes wide and may all your food stay a comfort and delight!

Microwave a pasty/pastry and put into a toaster oven for a much quicker cook.

Putting a refrigerated pasty in the microwave is fast but makes the pastry soggy and the oven takes too long but microwave it and put it into the toaster oven and it's much quicker.

Oven takes like, what? 20 minutes? Microwave 1 minute, toaster oven 2-5 minutes.

I've also done this before with "microwaveable" mini pizzas before with the microwave and oven. Sure is faster.

There's endless time to be saved with a toaster oven. I can't believe I didn't see how useful it would be until now. Reheating food and cooking quick sides and meals is so much quicker than the oven.

How long do I cook a microwave only meal in the oven?

SOLVED: approximately 22 minutes on 180Β°C with a gas fan forced oven from frozen

I need to cook microwave only meals in the oven because my microwave is broken.

I have ready made frozen meals that I need to cook (chicken parma, kiev, etc)

How long and what temperature would I need to cook frozen chicken meals (veggies included) in the oven to avoid getting sick?

Microwave Instructions: The package says on HIGH for 6 minutes, peel off the film then cook for a further 3 minutes.

What is the oven equivalent? I have fan forced gas oven. Celcius temperature.

My microwave died and caused my oven to stop working -but they are on separate breakers.

First off, I’m not an electrician. I know just enough to get myself in to trouble.

This issue I s a little convoluted so please bear with me. I moved into this house about four months ago and everything has been working great. Last night the microwave died and tripped the breaker. This is where I discover that the microwave and the fridge are on the same 20A circuit. I flip the breaker back on and the microwave is still dead but the fridge comes back to life. Seems simple enough. Need a new microwave and maybe run a dedicated circuit for it down the line.

Here’s the kicker -my oven/range (electric) stopped working at the same time. Now, the clock on the oven is still powered at this time and the lights come on when I turn on the range but the elements won’t heat up. The oven is on its own 50A breaker, so I’m a little perturbed at this point. Outlet testers show everything fine, breakers seem to be good, compressor on the fridge comes on -but the microwave is totally dark and the oven elements still don’t work.

I finally decided to just start replacing the simple things first. So I replace the microwave outlet with a new 20A receptacle and wouldn’t you just know it -my oven/range, which is on a separate breaker, works again (though the microwave plugged in to that receptacle is still toast).

Any idea what is going on here?

My only guess is that the neutral for the microwave is tied in to the neutral for the oven instead of being run back to the panel directly (or even tied to the neutral on the fridge). When the microwave and receptacle went it caused a short that was allowing the oven to draw enough current to power the lights but not the elements. Since the fridge worked the whole time after the breaker was reset I figure it is not on the same neutral as the microwave even though it is on the same breaker. Is this a correct assertion or am I missing something here?

TLDR; microwave died and caused my electric range which is on a separate breaker to stop working. Replaced the receptacle for the microwave and the electric range works again. Now I’m wondering what’s going on and if I need to be worried.
