From cooking to cleaning - adulting can be difficult enough. But thanks to technology and ingenious kitchen gadgets, our life has become simpler. If you have a microwave oven for only re-heating food, then you are missing a lot. Your favourite kitchen hotbox can do much more than just heating the food. So get ready with microwave-safe bowls and plates and try out these brilliant hacks that can make your daily kitchen work simple in many ways.
Say ‘NO’ to crying:
Are onions making you cry? Here’s a simple trick. Trim off the ends, peel off the papery layers and heat the onions in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Your eyes will be saved from the hurtful sensation while you chop the onion happily.
Microwave can also be a great tool for drying herbs. If you want to preserve them, wrap the herbs in a paper towel and heat them in the microwave for about 30 seconds. After the drying process, the herbs may last longer in the refrigerator.
Sick of having smelly garlic hands from all the peeling? Let your hotbox do the chore instead. Put the garlic in the microwave and heat it for not more than 15 seconds. The heat reduces the moisture between the cloves and loosens it. The skin will easily slide off, thus saving a lot of time.
Saves time in cooking grains:
Forgot to soak lentils or beans overnight? Place the lentils in a microwave-safe bowl filled with water, add a pinch of baking soda and microwave them for about 10-12 minutes. Rest them for 30-40 minutes. Your lentils are now good to be used for cooking purposes.
Juice a lemon easily:
Facing difficulty to squeeze the juice out of a lemon? Well, heat the lime for about 10-20 seconds in the microwave. The pulp inside becomes soft and you will be able to take the juice out easily.
