• Check that food is thoroughly cooked/reheated before serving.
• Cooking time will be affected by the shape, depth, quantity and temperature of food together with the
size, shape and material of the container.
• Never heat oil or fat for deep frying as this may lead to overheating and fire.

Food density will affect the amount of cooking time. Cut the food into thinner
parts, if possible, and arrange in single layer.
The cooking time must be increased as the amount increases.
Small foods and small pieces cook faster than large ones, as heat can penetrate
from all sides to the center. For even cooking make all the pieces the same size.
Foods which are irregular in shape, such as chicken breasts or drumsticks, may
take longer to cook in the thicker parts. Check that these parts are cooked thor-
oughly before serving.
The initial temperature of food affects the cooking time. Chilled foods will take
longer to cook than foods at room temperature. The temperature of the container
is not the actual temperature of the food or drink.
Seasoning or flavoring are best added after cooking. If added as marinades or
rubs, the taste may become less pronounced when cooking with steam. Add
seasoning or flavoring again after cooking if necessary.
Always use dry pot holders or oven mitts to remove food or utensils from the oven. Be careful
when opening the oven door to allow steam to dissipate.
