There is some variability in these so do try to track down a user manual for your model or a similar one from the same manufacturer. The manual is likely to have recipes that will adapt. In ours, for any use with the heater element on (convection, grill or combination) there's a metal baking sheet that must be put on top on the turntable. It should be ...

It depends what mode of cooking you're doing. There are a few possibilities: convection: heating with a heating element (no microwave power), circulating with the fan microwave: heating with microwaves, no fan microwave+convection: heating with microwaves, also using the fan (and possibly a heating element, who knows) If you're in convection mode, it's ...

There's no general answer. As you say, it's probably less than triple the time for one, and unless it's really small, it's probably substantially more than the time for one. But depending on the size and shape, it could be all over the place in that range. You pretty much just have to try it and check periodically, starting perhaps after 10-15 minutes to ...

Microwave ovens by their nature heat unevenly. The actual microwave radiation produces wave patterns with more and less amplitude within the cooking chamber. (From a physics standpoint, these are "standing waves" produced by internal wave reflections.) This is sort of the equivalent of "hot spots" and "cold spots" in a pan. Most modern microwaves contain ...

Most microwaves cannot modulate their power output. The power setting in those cases effectively just spreads out bursts of 100% power. Unless you bought a microwave specifically with a feature marketed as something like inverter, accuwave, or optimawave it is unlikely that the power selection is doing much at all beyond taking more time. For more info on ...

Softening lemon with water and all that jazz takes time. Best is microwave, just 30 - 45 seconds is enough to make it soft to squeeze more juice.

The owner's manual for my RV microwave/convection oven says: "the glass tray and turntable ring assembly must always be used when cooking".
