Quick Answer

Full Answer

Food can burn quickly on the broil setting and should be watched closely. Broiling food is similar to grilling it except that the heat source is above rather than below the food. Gas ovens sometimes have a distinct compartment for broiling foods. Microwaving fried food can make it soggy because the microwave heats from the inside out and brings moisture to the surface of the food.
