These popular kitchen appliances are useful for rapid heating of otherwise slowly prepared cooking items, such as butter, soups, and leftovers.
Unlike conventional ovens, these ovens usually do not directly brown or caramelize food, since they rarely attain the necessary temperatures to do so.
Exceptions occur in rare cases where the oven is used to heat frying-oil and other very oily items (such as bacon), which attain far higher temperatures than that of boiling water.
A common misconception is that these ovens cook food "from the inside out", meaning from the center of the entire mass of food outwards.
This idea arises from heating behavior seen if an absorbent layer of water lies beneath a less absorbent dryer layer at the surface of a food; in this case, the deposition of heat inside a food can exceed that on its surface.
In most cases, however, with uniformly structured or reasonably homogenous food item, microwaves are absorbed in the outer layers of the item in a manner somewhat similar to heat from other methods.
