Using Deep Covered Baker in Microwave

A friend of ours just moved into his first apartment. He's a young, single guy who wants to learn to cook but doesn't know much now. We want to get him the deep covered baker, but his microwave doesn't have the carousel in it. I thought there were instructions for microwaves without them, but I can't find anything. I have never had one without it. Any tips or suggestions? I'm assuming he will have to turn it, but how often?

Thanks!

Hey there - I'm downsizing & moved into an apartment.
The deep covered baker won't even fit into the microwave!
The large stoneware barely fits into the oven.
For a young guy learning how to cook, might I suggest an excellent forged cutlery utility knife & cutting board would be far more useful? He'll remember it for years.
I didn't have a decent knife until I was in my 30s.

Don't forget...there is the Round Covered Baker, but also a smaller version of the Deep Covered Baker is coming out this week in the spring line. It may fit in a smaller microwave (I think it's about half the size of the original DCB).

Typically turn a vessel every 1/4 of the cooking time, or every 4 minutes, whichever is less. I made lots of 3-2-1 cakes (look on files) in microwaves without turntables and wowed folks every time regardless if there was a turntable in the microwave or not. Remember a microwave heats from the bottom, and that resting time is important. As you know, foods with a high water content or foods that can steam do very well in a microwave.

Thanks! Now that they came out with the smaller one, I might get him that one. Just can't decide - so many options! lol
