A Microwave oven works by heating water molecules in food with electromagnetic waves, these heated water molecules then heat our food and meals.
Microwave ovens create a kind of waves called electromagnetic waves due to the presence of electricity and magnetic fields. Frequency of this wave is such high that it heats the water molecules present in the food or meal. Because the water is present in the food itself, it is natural that the food will also get heated in this process. Try cooking some food in a microwave oven without any water to understand this. Can you cook rice and noodles in a microwave oven without any water? Of course you cannot cook rice or noodle without any water\r even of a gas stove. Now why does popcorn get cooked in a microwave oven? Well, we dont cook popcorn, we bake them. Baking is always possible in a microwave oven.
