 12 things you never imagined you could do with a microwave oven

July 16, 2018 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

Seventy-one years after the invention of the first microwave oven, it has become an appliance that is now found in almost every kitchen.

Ensuring its success is the speed of its method of heating and cooking food, but certainlyalso its significantly reduced size when compared to those of a traditional oven, and consequently, also its more competitive price.

Yet, decades after its diffusion, it still hides some secrets! Are you ready to discover them with us?

 1. Frothy milk

What is the easiest way to make frothy milk?  Simply, shake the milk carton for 30 seconds then pour it into a microwave-safe container, place it in the microwave, 30 seconds at 500 Watt.

 2. Well-cooked bacon

First place two paper towels on a flat microwave-safe plate, then place the bacon strips on the paper towels; then cover with another paper towel and place the plate in the microwave for 2 minutes at 500 Watt.


 3. Crispy bacon

Another way to prepare bacon is to place it on an inverted microwave-safe bowl, cover it with a paper towel and let it cook in the microwave for one minute at 500 Watt.

 4. Egg strips

Beat an egg in a bowl and pour it on a flat microwave-safe plate, which you will then place in the microwave oven for two minutes at 500 Watt. At this point, take the plate out, cut the cooked egg into strips and ... enjoy your meal!

 5. Peeled garlic

A simple trick to peel garlic quickly and easily? Cut off the base of a clove of garlic, then put it in the microwave for one minute at 500 Watt. The garlic skin will slip off in one single gesture.


 6. Pop corn

Pour 1/3 cup of popcorn kernels (100 g) into a brown paper lunch bag, then close it and place in the microwave for three minutes at 500 watts.

 7. Hard-boiled egg

Wrap a whole raw egg in aluminum foil and put it in a microwave-safe glass, and, after filling it with enough water to cover the egg completely (this is very important!), Cook for 15 minutes at 500 watts. Once cooked, put it under cold water, remove the aluminum and shake the egg inside the glass --- and it will peel all by itself!


 8. Cheese appetizers

Arrange squares of cheese (also pre-packaged cheese slices are fine) on a kitchen parchment paper, then cook them in the microwave for 90 seconds at 500 watts.

 9. Instantly mature bananas

It is very simple! Just cook the whole banana, with its peel, in the microwave for 30 seconds at 500 watts.


 10. Lemon juice

Cut a lemon in half, put it on a plate and leave it in the microwave for 20 seconds at 500 watts and squeezing it will be easy! Save and keep the lemon peels for the next trick;)

 11. Cleaning with lemon

Insert the two halves of the lemon peel in the microwave for one minute at 500 watts. Then use the lemon peels to clean the inside of the microwave oven by rubbing them on the inside parts of the appliance. Your microwave will be once again shiny and clean --- and also smell great! :)

12. Cleaning the microwave with steam

Soak an absorbent and resistant cloth with water put it in the microwave for three minutes at 500 watts; then use it to clean the appliance.
