To speed oven, or not speed oven; THAT is the question
I'm a bit of a health nut, and try to avoid cooking too much food in microwaves because of the impact microwave cooking has on the micro-nutrient value of food.
In planing our kitchen reno, however, I have had a speed oven at the top of my appliance wishlist because of the convenience and speed such a device can offer a crazed over-worked mother and her hungry family. Trouble is, I assume the 'speed' technology of the oven involves using the microwave, which I worry negatively impacts the nutrient quality of the food I'm preparing in it.
Has anyone else had these concerns and still bought a speed oven? Is there research out there on this topic? If I have concerns with a microwave's impact on the nutrient value of food, should I be avoiding speed ovens altogether?
