Microwave oven, no doubt plays a very important role in cooking and reheating left over foods. But there are many associated dangers attached with microwave oven cooking. When food is cooked in microwave oven it is not evenly cooked and leave hold and cold spots. Many microorganisms are not destroyed which can be harmful to our health. Simple techniques to minimize the cold spots include stirring and rotating the food once or twice during microwaving, arranging foods uniformly in a covered dish, and turning large foods upside down during cooking.
Microwave ovens are not advised to be used in home canning, as they don’t produce high temperature that can kill the harmful bacteria. Since microwave ovens are commonly used for defrosting, special care should be taken to make sure to make sure raw ingredients are thoroughly cooked. You also need to buy a better microwave oven that has good safety records. You can check out some good microwave ovens here.
A microwave oven uses radio waves to cook food. The commonly used radio wave frequency is roughly 2.5 Ghz. Radio waves in this frequency range have an interesting property : they are absorbed by water, fats and sugars. When they are absorbed they are converted directly into atomic motion and motion is converted into heat. The high frequency waves are not absorbed by plastic, glass or ceramic. That’s why when cooking in microwave oven the utensils don’t get hot only the food is heated.
The more I think about, and especially the more I write about, personal development and growth, the more I begin to realize that true self improvement comes about through good old fashioned hard work and serious introspection. Presently, there is a popular offshoot of personal development that could be labelled ‘personal prosperity development’; it’s not really improving one’s self at all, it’s an attempt to achieve wealth. Having more money makes you a person with more money, it does nothing for your personal growth. Take latest craze involving the law of attraction for example. The underlying theme of this movement is acquiring wealth, otherwise, no one would be interested and the secret would not have enjoyed the popularity that it has. I’m hoping that this obsession with getting something for nothing will end soon, probably not, although people should soon start to see nothing happen when they write “I want $20,000″ down on a sheet of paper.
Common working people look at the wealthy and cannot begin to figure out how they achieved their wealth. They have a vague idea, but as for the mechanism of that wealth, they are ignorant. People flail around desperately, grasping everywhere to find the secret to wealth building so they too can cash in on the abundance they observe. Not knowing how or where to start, they turn to the quickest solution; magic. That’s right, I said magic. People are searching for a magical method of attracting wealth into their lives. Right now, prosperity is being preached to the North American populous relentlessly. The preachers always become prosperous, but the followers, so desperate to find the secret, have always come up with the short end of the stick. People are searching for the trick of the rich, they believe that a lucky few people have somehow been able to ‘tap into’ a realm where money and material wealth comes flowing in non-stop with very little effort. Without an easy explanation, people have surmised that this wealth attracting method must lie in the mind; the way in which these people think.
