[origin: EP0924964A2] A microwave oven has an infrared sensor (110) for sensing the temperature of food during cooking. The sensor (110) is directed obliquely downwards and rearwards from the upper front edge of the cooking chamber (54). A shutter (150) protects the sensor (110) when it is not required for sensing food temperature. <IMAGE>
