Just got a new microwave with a browning dish:

Microwave - Using a Browning Dish

Because microwaves do not brown as readily as conventional cooking, browning dishes are very helpful. Browning dishes simulate a fry pan or skillet so that foods such as steaks, chops, hamburgers, and even french toast can be prepared. Browning dishes are a pyroceramic material with metal imbedded in it. Most must be preheated in the microwave so that the metal superheats the surface creating a griddle effect. Be careful because they get very hot.

We always recommend that the manufacturer's directions be followed but below are a few guidelines:

Do not use a browning dish on a microwave shelf. You must put it on a clean oven floor. If the microwave has a removable glass tray on the floor, be sure to leave the glass tray in place.
Preheating times vary according to the size of the dish, food used, etc. Follow the manufacturer's directions.
Always start with minimum time, increasing the time for more browning.
Partially frozen foods brown more slowly than refrigerator temperature food.
Excess moisture decreases browning. Dry meats with paper towel first.
Flatten or press food with a spatula occasionally to increase browning.
Do not use a cover for crisper, browner foods.
Rotating the dish during cooking produces more even cooking. The dish will be hot.
When using the dish a second time, preheating time is usually cut in half.


french fries in the browning dish tastes incredibly good (for fries cooked in a microwave) and it is perfect for a quick snack, in just 5 mins frozen potatoes sticks becomes french fries.

Since it's an USian thinghy I thought maybe someone did try to cook some tempura wih it.

Tempura is deep fried.

A browning dish will not work.

Also french fries are usually deep fried, and with the browning dish they tastes exactly like deep fried fries , a bit of oil on the dish makes hem actually taste like the real thing unlike oil-less friers. That why I got the idea of making tempura. The problem is probably that the batter would come down on the disk instead of sticking to the shrimps. Maybe frozen tempura could work.
I guess I will try some shrimps without any batter first. That should work.

Frozen should work fine, it's the batter that is the problem when making fresh tempura.
