A guide about How to Take Care of Kitchenaid Microwave Ovens

Microwave are miniature marvels of technology, lending speed and quality to cooking at the flick of a switch. As kitchens embrace microwave cooking for god health and convenience, it is important to understand how to take proper care of the ovens. With the right handling and maintenance, ovens can outlive extended warranty periods without a problem. Though general awareness about microwave ovens are high enough, some of the important tips tend to get ignored. Here are a few suggestions to improve life and performance of your Kitchenaid microwave oven which comes loaded with a whole host of features to take care of most of your cooking needs.

Grounding of sockets and outlets
Most owners of microwave ovens overlook the requirement of a properly grounded outlet/socket.  Many are of the opinion that a working socket or outlet is an indication of a good one and go ahead with plugging in the appliance. This is fraught with risks, and can compromise safety, exposing individuals to shocks, in addition to exposing the appliance to possible damage.

Avoid loading sealed containers and whole eggs with shells
Sealed containers, closed jars and whole eggs with shells are never to be loaded in the microwave ovens as the chances of the contents exploding during heating are highly likely.  Similarly, it is important that the ovens be used only for the purpose intended. Microwave ovens are meant to cook dry food and not to be used with corrosive substances or vapors. Straying away from the actual usage with experimentation can lead to hazards that may damage the appliance.

Handling burnt or ignited food

In the event the contents ignite or burn when inside the cavity, it is necessary to not panic and open the oven directly. The power needs to be tuned off, the power cord should then be removed from the socket following which oven needs to be opened. While the chances of food igniting are low, it is possible due to loading of inflammable foods or materials that should not have gone in, such as plastic coated twist ties of bags, paper etc.
