Cooking Light Waves - On the House

Cooking Light Waves

By on January 3, 2014

New technology makes for faster cooking!

You may know about magnetic induction cooktops that are rivaling microwaves for speed and convenience. Now another new cooking technology has been announced. Ovens that use light waves from high-intensity halogen bulbs cook food in half the time a conventional oven does. Unlike microwaves, introduced more than 25 years ago, that cook from the inside out, light waves cook from the exterior inward just like regular ovens do, but they penetrate foods faster and get the job done in much less time.

Some prototypal ovens combine microwaves and infrared heat to brown outer surfaces. Others use small jets of super-heated air to assist lightwave cooking. While they aren’t expected to replace conventional ovens or to shelve microwaves anytime soon, they are a hot new kitchen technology that’s worth keeping an eye on.
