Both, home cooks and chefs are endorsing the microwave oven – not just for reheating, but for cooking. Microwaves are moving into the spotlight for their efficient cook times, ease of use, and size. A good microwave should heat your food safely, quickly, and evenly. Hisense microwave ovens are compact, have a spacious interior, and come with helpful preset buttons for easy cooking. For making sure it really does everything it promises, try this super delicious recipe with a twist for gratinated Jacob shells with mozzarella. All made in the microwave oven.

Open the shells and take the meat out. Save several shell bodies. Wash the seashells and leave them in cold water for several minutes, then drain the water, dry, and place into a fireproof pan smeared with fat.

After that take the pan out of the oven and remove the seashells.
Melt butter in fireproof pan at 100% microwave power for 1–2 minutes. Add peeled and chopped scallion, and fry in combined microwave and convection mode (for 1–2 minutes.
