The microwave has been a household staple for quite a while now, and we love them. But not many people ever tap into the other convenient uses they have. We have compiled a list of 10 reasons why your microwave is more useful than you thought. That’s right, get ready for some painfully simple mind blowing! But careful, this stuff is hot!
1. Peeling garlic in a matter of seconds
15 second in the microwave and the skin will come off that garlic like nobody’s business.
2. Softening up stale bread
Dampen and squeeze out a paper towel, then wrap your oaf in it and microwave for 10-20 seconds. It will come out soft as ever with the same taste as when purchased.
3. Juicing fruits
Fruit gives more juice after being microwaved for 10 seconds.
4. Nuts good enough to drive you…well, nuts
Add several drops of olive oil to you bunch of nuts and microwave for a few seconds. The smell and taste will definitely not disappoint.
5. Softening sugar
A couple drops of water into your sugar, and 25-30 seconds in the heat box and there you go.
6. Help your dough rise
Cover your dough with a towel and place it in the microwave alongside a glass of water for up to three minutes, and it will rise significantly faster.
7. Peeling vegetables
15 seconds in the microwave and your veggies will peel like a charm.
8. Cutting onions without shedding a tear
That’s right, 30 seconds and you have a tear-free dinner prep.
9. Crunchy bacon
Just line a tray with your bacon slices and microwave until crunchy.
10. Beans and peas
Dry beans and peas are traditionally soaked in water for hours before preparation, but not if you have a microwave. 10 minutes will do the trick.
