CIA secrets in your microwave

Panasonic teams up with the Culinary Institute of America to create microwave recipes.

If you think the most you can do with a microwave is bake a potato or two, think again. Panasonic just announced a new collaboration with The Culinary Institute of America (CIA). What does this collaboration mean for you? Oh, only that some of the best chefs in the country will develop no-fuss gourmet recipes for cooking with Panasonic microwaves, as well as create key microwave-cooking technique videos that will be hosted on Panasonic's microwave Virtual Test Kitchen Web site.


The recipes are designed to be affordable, easy, and quick to prepare, with broad appeal. The CIA will also conduct complete nutritional analysis with dietary information for each recipe, so you'll know exactly what you're getting with each one.

The recipes are specially formulated to take advantage of Panasonic's Inverter technology, which allows for more even cooking by providing an an always-on, constant energy flow at variable intensities. Consistent and precise heat means more control over cooking, reheating, and defrosting with uniform results and no overcooked edges.

Make your microwave do more than reheat last night's leftovers. Put it to work and let it make you an all-new dinner tonight.
