Best Microwave Oven in India


Prevention is better than cure, they said. But if you are a fan of Disney, then you might remember the words of Mia’s father as he wrote the letter to her for her sixteenth birthday, which went as follows:

“The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.”

In case you wonder what these words have to do with a microwave oven, be warned, for appearances can indeed be deceptive. Aside from appearing polished and sleek outside (and maybe inside), it may not behave as royally as one might expect it to. As they say, there is a limit to each one’s patience, and it holds true here, too.

But you can take a leaf out of Mr. Renaldi as above, or even the brave Princess Merida (of “Brave” fame) to be a bit daring and bring one into your sanctuary of a home.

If you are into technology and the mysteries surrounding all things technology, or if this article looks to be interesting enough for your senses to feat on, then the following paragraph is for you:

Ovens of the microwave band work differently from OTGs in the sense that the latter use convection of heat as the basic principle to cook the food substances within it. Convection, as we all know, differs from the direct application of fire or heat in the use of air as a medium of heat transfer. Now, air is not a very good conductor of heat, in case you are caught unawares. Air is a dielectric and is the principle behind the dielectric heating phenomenon of microwave ovens. Microwaves give rise to electric dipoles (pairs of equal and opposite charges separated by a small distance) that align themselves along one direction depending on the direction of the electric current (the current comes from an AC source, remember?). So, when the current reverses its direction, the direction of the net dipole moment also changes accordingly to re-align itself along the new direction of the current. Now, the current alternates about 50 times each second, so the molecules also try to follow the same and in doing so, generate heat by mutual friction i.e. the energy generated when the molecules in motion collide amongst themselves in their haste. This heat is what penetrates the food inside and causes it to roast (or burn, depending on the amount of time you keep it in there for). So that’s the oven, all opened up for your thirsty mind to analyze, if you happen to be the analytical type a la Albert Einstein.

One might note that microwave ovens are not as bad as they are made to look, what with the spreading of rumours of these instruments causing cancer, besides other shocking statements, do not give in to them.

You had better be aware that cooking food substances above the temperature of 280 °C results in the formation of certain cancerous substances, so better stick to the conventional foodstuffs when using this device as it is sensitive to substances that are heavier on the fats and oils instead of the starchy part and this is because fats have a lower specific heat capacity than water (i.e. less than 1 g/cc) because of which they reach a boiling point higher than that of H2O.
