One of the most common questions I receive for almost all my baking recipes is ‘How to use the recipe while using their m/w convection grill”. And of course many more related queries pertinent to it. I consider Food blogging to be an all important platform where one helps another with food related questions hoping that experience and similar situations help. But in this case, since I do not own a m/w convection grill, I was indeed left in a fix. I soon approached a resident expert of whom many bloggers are aware of to help me in this regard. She has graciously accepted my request to answer all such queries.

Do you have any M/w Convection grill questions? Any doubts that’s been nagging your brain cells for long? Don’t hesitate to shoot out even the most silliest of them – many of us might have the same too! Ask them below and the answers to them will be posted to the best of abilities.

I have already started a thread in my Chef In You facebook page - you can see the thread of questions and doubts below

Kaberi Mukherjee how to make kebab ???
Valerie Vales how safe it is to use a microwave??
Tejal Mehta-Shah I have never attempted to use it for anything other than re-heating..50% of ppl i know are doing the same..not using a convection oven to bake. Therein lies the problem, when you're baking, do you treat it as a m/w or as a regular oven. Can you use baking utensils in a m/w that is also an oven? And then there is the pre-heating..is it the same as if i would be using a regular oven? Maybe you should do a basic post on this.. Thanks for taking this issue up..really need it..
