Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

WESTPOINT Dear Sir/Ms I received a WESTPOINT CONVECTION OVEN Model WPC018D, as a gift from my son for Christmas. I have tried several times to bake a cake in this oven, but everytime I had to take the cake after as long a period as 40 (forty) minutes out of this oven and bake it in my normal oven. The cake has a crust on the outside but is still very raw on the inside. I baked the cakes on temperatures varying from 125?C to 140?C. The same applies for the chicken that we tried to bake in this oven. Can you please help me with more info on the baking temps and times and methods of this oven. Thanking you in anticipation.

Chances are you have a bad thermistor (internal temperature sensor).

Your owner's manual should have a number or Web address for Westpoint customer service.

They should be able to tell you where you can locate an authorized servicer or parts.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: cooking temp to bake cake inn convection mode samsung model

Hi I guess you are cooking usng the combination setting? if so The cake will be hard due to increased microwave energy, I would suggest reducing the microwave energy on the Samsung unit when using the combination setting.

Hope this helps

You should be using convection mode first of all. It's not clear from your post if you are. Also looks like you're oven is baking at higher temperature than it says. Try 170 degrees for 13-14 mins instead.

What is convection cookong


A convection microwave is a combination of a standard microwave oven and a convection oven. It allows food cooked in the convection microwave to be cooked quickly, yet come out browned or crisped as in a convection oven. However, most cakes cannot be baked in a microwave oven - only those without an open grain structure, such as brownies. There are microwaves which contain electric browning baking elements. A true convection microwave has a high velocity forced air fan to circulate the hot air uniformly.

Bake cake oven


It depends on the size of the cake. I make a syrup sponge cake that contains 4oz flour, 4oz Sugar, 4oz Butter and 2 eggs, with a layer of syrup in the bottom of the microwave bowl. It usually takes 4-5 mins on maximum in my 800W microwave.
