Metal in a microwave oven? (Yes, it’s okay—and safe)

We were taught never to place anything metallic in a microwave oven—but the Magic Pot is microwave safe. How is that true?

Panasonic designed this pot with silicone, rubber, stainless steel, and aluminum in all the right places to create a safe, optimal cooking experience. Just make sure the Magic Pot is placed in the center of the microwave oven turntable and follow instructions for when to use the Lid, Steam Tray, and Crispy Pot according to each recipe.

Here's how the Magic Pot works: as the microwave oven generates heat, the metal deflects this heat and the rubber base absorbs it, conducting the heat only to the bottom and sides of the Crispy Pot, enabling ideal cooking conditions for searing, steaming, simmering, and crisping of foods.

proper positioning of the magic pot is in the center of the turntable, not off to a side

The pot should always be placed in the center of the microwave turntable. NEVER let the Magic Pot touch the walls of the microwave, as it will cause arcing (sparks). If arcing occurs, immediately stop the microwave cooking and center the Magic Pot. Please follow directions in the recipe book and user manual to ensure safe, consistent results.

Four cooking methods

We’ve designed the Magic Pot to be incredibly versatile! Use the components in different combinations for four different cooking methods. Each method has its own way of bringing out just the right texture and flavor of different foods. Here’s an overview.
