Your microwave has more tricks up its sleeve than just heating your frozen food.
Here are 10 microwave hacks that'll save you time in the kitchen.
Bacon is extra good when its crispy. Drape bacon strips over an upside down bowl on a plate, then microwave for one minute per slice of bacon. The grease will drop on the plate, leaving you only the delicious meat.
2. Uncut Fruit
Fruits like oranges and lemons seem to go to waste when they are hand juiced. Pop your uncut fruit in the microwave for 10 seconds so that you can juice to every last drop!
3. Brown Sugar
When your brown sugar is clumped so tightly you feel like Iron Man trying to soften it up, put it in the microwave. Moisten a paper towel, place it in a (preferably non-plastic) bag, then microwave for 25 seconds.
4. Crystallized Honey
Honey doesn't go bad, but it does become less appealing once its crystallized. Remove the lid of your glass jar and put it in the microwave for 30 to 40 second increments until it goes back to its original texture.
5. Stale Bread
We've all had our fair share of stale bread after forgetting to close the bread bag, but you'll never have to do that again if you follow this microwave hack.
Wrap up the loaf in a moist paper towel and microwave it in 20-second increments. The moisture from the towel will soak into the bread without making it soggy.
