Whether you are operating a café, coffee shop, restaurant, or another type of professional kitchen, a commercial microwave oven is an essential piece for reheating, defrosting, and steaming foods. Most people tend to associate microwaves with food products such as frozen dinners and pizza, but there are many other types of food served in professional kitchens that can be cooked in a commercial high-speed restaurant oven. Here are some other types of food that professional kitchens can cook in their commercial microwave:

Breads

Customers love the smell and taste of freshly baked bread, however in a fast-paced professional kitchen, this isn’t always an option. Put your commercial microwave oven to use by reheating bread within minutes. When microwaving bread, it’s best to keep it covered with a lightly moistened paper towel or kitchen towel. This will help to keep your bread soft, instead of hard and crumbly. You should also use a low power cooking setting and regularly check to see if the bread is warm (and not piping hot, or it will be chewy).

Vegetables

Most people tend to think that cooking vegetables (especially frozen vegetables) are best done on the stovetop and not in the microwave. Barbara Kafka, author of the book “Microwave Gourmet” (William Morrow, 1987), says that microwaving vegetables is better. “Their color is better, their flavour is better, you have no water dripping, and there are studies that show they retain more vitamins,” shares Barbara.

Chocolate-Flavoured Desserts

Desserts are popular offerings for guests of a restaurant, café, or other fine eatery. If your kitchen serves desserts in a variety of ways (such as warmed up), guests will flock to your kitchen to try your delicious dishes. If you want to utilize your high-speed restaurant oven to warm up a dessert, start with a popular chocolate-flavoured dessert. Some examples include steamed pudding, warm fudge, and microwaved brownies.
