Microwave Hacks for Daily Life
Refresh bread, cook eggs, and more with these useful Microwave hacks!

The microwave has become a staple of any modern kitchen. Whether it's re-heating leftovers or heating up water for tea, the microwave is a versatile and powerful appliance, especially for people who are sort on time. But it's not just for warming up prepared food anymore; a microwave can be used in all sorts of ways you would never expect. These "microwave hacks" are useful and convenient ways to speed up your kitchen tasks.

Using a microwave to prep ingredients can save time and help you make the most out of your food. For example, when juicing a citrus fruit, try putting it in the microwave for 20 seconds to soften it up a bit. This will yield you the most juice, without having to strain your muscles! Or, microwave garlic or tomatoes before cooking to make them easier to peel.

Your renewed zest for microwaving foods may come at a steep price: a big mess in your microwave. Fortunately, we have a quick hack for that as well. Simply place a bowl of water with two squeezed-out lemon halves (and their juice) in the microwave and set for five minutes. This will allow you to easily wipe down any food that may have dried on the microwave walls.
