Whether it’s making fancy cheese bowls or removing postage stamps, your microwave is like the Swiss army knife of your kitchen (unless you already have a Swiss army knife in your kitchen of course). It can do things you never dreamed of! So get ready to impress your friends and colleagues because these are 25 things you never knew your microwave could do!
Scrambled eggs in 3 minutes
Need a quick breakfast? Just beat some eggs with some milk and cheese in a bowl, add some salt and pepper, and microwave for a minute and a half. Remember to stop at about the 45 second mark to stir the eggs.
Parmesan cheese bowls
This one is a bit tricky but it will definitely impress your friends. Spread some parmesan cheese in a pizza-like circle on some parchment paper. Microwave it until it is golden brown. Now, working quickly, take the circle of parmesan cheese and place it over an upside down bowl (so it assumes its shape). Place another upside down bowl over the cheese so that it is pressed between the two upside down bowls, and wait for a bit. Now fill the bowl with salad and congratulations fancy pants, you’re basically French!
Make potato chips
So re-crisping potato chips is cool but actually making them is cooler! The hardest part comes first. Slice some potatoes as thin as you can and arrange them on a plate. Now microwave them in 3 minute bursts, flipping them and decreasing the power level each time. Go forth and impress your friends!
Corn on the cob
Just put it in the microwave husk and all. After several minutes the husk will slide right off and the corn will be sweet and tender!
Simply mix all the dry ingredients – sugar, cinnamon, cocoa, salt, flour, vanilla, oil, and water – in a coffee mug until there are no lumps. Microwave for about 2 minutes. You can thank us later.
