Surprising Things Your Microwave Can Do

Posted by Art Of Legend India [dot] Com On 10:07 PM

Microwave When Thing Summary: Learn a new trick -or six- about your microwave. These tricks can make your life easier and simpler.

Microwaves are an essential part of a modern kitchen. They are easy to use, save you time and energy. However, your microwave is not only a device used to make popcorn or heat last night’s leftovers.

Here are six surprising things your microwave can do:

Disinfecting and Cleaning Sponges:

When the kitchen sponge starts to smell, the first though is that the scrubber is in need of replacement. Instead of throwing your sponge in the bin, throw the sponge in the microwave. Soak the sponge in vinegar or lemon juice and then heat it on high for a minute. Remember to use oven mitts to remove your newly disinfected and clean kitchen sponge.

Cook Dinner in Ten Minutes:

Most people do not have time to cook dinner. You come home late from gym, work or picking the kids up from aftercare and everyone is starving. While the easiest choice is to run through the drive-through at McDonalds, both you and your kids’ health will not benefit from this trip. Instead any recipe that calls for braising, poaching and steaming. Just remember to stir any liquid every minute to ensure an even distribution of heat and be ready to sit down to dinner in ten minutes.

Decrystallising Your Honey Jar:

Do you love eating honey, but hate having to throw out half a jar of crystallised honey? Simply place the jar of honey in the microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remember, to use oven gloves when removing your decrystallised honey.

Roasting Garlic:

Surprising Things Your Microwave Can DoDo you love roast garlic? Instead of taking 45 minutes in the oven, roasting garlic in the microwave takes a mere 8 minutes. Slice off the top of the head to reveal all the gloves and place in a deep dish with salt, pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Spoon into the bowl two table spoons of water and then cover the bowl with plastic wrapping. Cook the garlic for 7 – 8 minutes and then leave to cool with the plastic wrapping on for 10 minutes. This will ensure that the garlic glove is completed cooked and ready to use.

Partially Cook Grilling Foods:

Instead of grilling your meat and vegetables for hours and improving the chance of burning the food, simply precook the food in the microwave. Cooking them partway in the microwave will allow you to cut down on your grilling time, without having raw or undercooked food. This is not only great for meat and vegetables, but can also be used for making s’mores -marshmallows- at your next campfire.

Getting More Juice from Lemons:

A lemon straight from the refrigerator is harder to juice than one sitting at room temperate. In order to keep your lemon fresh, store the food item in the fridge until need be. When you need to use the lemon, simply place it in the oven on high for 20 seconds. The microwave will warm and soften the fruit, allowing you to get more juice for your squeeze.

Your oven is not simply for reheating your tea or bean bag. Ensure that you get the most out of your microwave by using one of these six surprising tricks.
