I just bought the "home edition" and read it with interest. Particularly the microwave section. It explains it all, but I never did much with mine but melt chocolate. I am a caterer and do my bit of cooking but never enjoyed my micro to do it. Why I don't know. I also take nutrition classes and comments on microwaves are such: The micro destroys all nutrients. The micros are banned in Russia. The plastics are dangerous (I know this has been explained here and I am just quoting here what's floating around). And obviously cooking in a micro per se has not caught on or else there would be far more generally published recipes as there are. So, my question is where do I find objective research on microwaves?
