I've been making roux in the microwave ever since that one I was stirring popped and went in my eye...probably 35yrs ago.... Did one this morning.

You mix the oil and flour like normal and throw it in the microwave. To get it heated, I do ~70% power for 4min or so...stir, a couple more minutes, stir...etc. Once it gets hot and starts turning the slightest hint of browning, reduce microwave power to ~50% and cook ~2min and stir. Repeat at the lower power until desired color is acheived. Key is frequent stirring.

If you get impatient and put the power too high or cook too long before stirring, you will get a hardened burnt "spot" in the middle towards the bottom. If it's not too bad you can salvage the whole container by removing this spot and lowering the power/time. If the hard spot is too large, put entire container outside because it will smoke for quite some time and you'll have to start all over again....How bad is too bad? Don't worry, you'll know when it happens.

I've been doing it in the micro for years too. 5 minutes on high power, stir and then 1 or 2 minutes and stir. Repeat until it gets as dark as you want. Using a round microwave safe vessel (not plastic) and a turntable will keep the flour from forming the burnt hard lumps. You also need to whisk the flour and oil so there are no lumps of flour. Usually takes me about 8 minutes. The top if it will be much lighter color than the bottom while cooking, so stir often towards the end.

so about 1min at pnut butter color, stir and maybe 30sec till desired color?
my oven has a 30sec button... I'll try that...
and gonna order a couple jars of Savioe's...
make roux isn't difficult, just standing and whisk/stirring is a pain w/ a black skillet

I've been making roux in the microwave for several years now and can get it a lot darker without burning than I can on stovetop. On stovetop I used to chicken out when it started getting iffy. in the micro, I just shorten the time between stirs and darken incrementally until it gets where I want it. I heat it in pyrex and when ready pour into my cook pot with the veggies and stir like he77 until they are soft before adding stock. Had very good results. Never used store bought roux.

I made a quick chicken and sausage gumbo on Friday using Douget's and have no complaints. I plan to use the second half of the jar to whip up some seafood gumbo this weekend.

It is hard to burn it in the micro unless you have lumps or little balls of flour. The stirring part is more to see the true color of the roux. Little air bubbles of lighter color will appear on the top. I go 5 minutes and then 1 minute intervals strrring with the whisk every time until it gets as dark as I want it to be. As said above, carefully add it to your gumbo pot and cook your trinity before adding stock.
