If you have a simple, microwave oven, then you cannot preheat it. Microwaves are not equipped with a pre-heat function as they are primarily used to heat up food that has already been cooked, or to cook food such as jacket potatoes or tinned produce.

However, if you have a combination convection/microwave oven, or a convection oven, then you can preheat it. The process for preheating a combination or convection oven will differ depending on the model of your LG oven.

  • Preheating an oven
Preheating an oven requires that you know the temperature at which your food must be cooked. The required temperature should be listed somewhere on the packaging of the food, along with a series of cooking instructions. Alternatively, you could look up recipes in a book or online if you're looking to cook a particular meat dish, cake or other type of food.

When you know the temperature at which your food must be cooked, you should set the oven to this temperature. More modern ovens are usually designed to measure temperature in degrees Celsius - older ovens may use degrees Fahrenheit, or a Gas Mark system.

Once you have set the temperature, you should leave your oven for at least five minutes. Older ovens may not provide any notice when they reach the right temperature, but leaving your oven for five minutes or more will ensure that the oven is very hot. More modern ovens may make a sound, show a symbol or even flash when they reach the correct temperature. When this occurs, your oven is ready to cook your food.

  • Why should I preheat my oven?
Preheating an oven ensures that the oven is at the optimal temperature for cooking a particular food thoroughly and effectively. If you do not preheat the oven, then the oven will not be warm enough to cook your food properly - after all, it may take a while for your oven to reach 200 or 250 degrees.

It's a pity, but it's not possible to do it! I know for sure. I thought my microwave was broken, because I could not preheat it. I even searched the internet for information on LG microwave troubleshooting, because I wanted to fix this malfunction, but as it turned out, I was just a fool who did not know about the real possibilities of a microwave oven :)
