  • Patent number: 6294773
    Abstract: One or more magnetrons may be used directly underneath the foods to be cooked/heated. However, a thin layer of nonconductor, such as a glass is used to physically isolate the magnetrons from the foods while permitting the microwave energy to transmit through the nonconductor. A wave-guide may be used to transmit the microwave energy from one or more magnetrons to a surface adjacent to the food products such that the magnetrons are placed a distance away from the food products. A nonconductor is also used to isolate the wave-guide from the foods.

  • Patent number: RE37706
    Abstract: The present invention provides a system for cooking and/or heating a food product rapidly with the use of microwave and hot oil heating, which are applied simultaneously during the entire or partial period of the cooking and/or heating time. The food product may be frozen prior to processing, and may consist of an outer wrapper and an inner filling. It is desirable that after a relatively short cooking and/or heating process, the outer wrapper becomes crispy with a uniform golden-brown color while the inner filling reaches a desired temperature.
