20 Things You Didn’t Know Your Microwave Could Do

Another Way To Clean A Messy Microwave

If you don’t have any vinegar but you do have paper towels, you can place damp paper towels inside your microwave for about three to five minutes on high power. This will cause steam as well, so when the microwave goes off, just let the towels cool for a few minutes and use them to wipe the food and grime away. This is a simple, yet effective way to clean a microwave.

Cooking Fish Well

When it comes to cooking fish well, you want to make sure it is done and comes out delicious as well. You can do it fast in the microwave. Just make sure the fish is well dried and overlap two thin fillets together. Overlapping the fillets makes it so it will cook evenly. Put it in the microwave and remove it once all of it is opaque. By doing it this way, the fish will continue to cook while sitting there and will come out better. However, if you leave it inside the microwave too long, it will overcook so as soon as you see it looking opaque take it out and let it set.

Drying Herbs In The Microwave

Instead of waiting on your herbs to dry by themselves, put them in the microwave to make them dry faster. You can easily dry them in the microwave by placing a cup of parsley or other herbs on a paper towel and putting them in the microwave for two to four minutes. Take them out and crumble them on the paper towel when done.

Restore Your Old Honey

If you have a jar of honey that has crystalized because you have had it for so long, you can easily restore it in the microwave. All you have to do is remove the lid and place it in the microwave for about two minutes to restore it back to its original glory.
