You would’ve always been thinking that your microwave is just meant for heating frozen lunch or dinners? Well, the good news is that BetterRead came up with such microwave hacks that you never knew before, making your kitchen life more simpler than ever. These hacks from froth milk, sugar softening, or whipping up French toast, or more.
Let us have a look at the list:
Peel garlic Instantly
You need to nuke the garlic for almost fifteen seconds and its skin is going to slide off like magic. The water present in the garlic steams shatters down the bond in between the clove and its skin for instant removal.
Rescue stale bread
Well, if you have forgotten to close your bread after using a couple of slices, you need to simply wrap it in a damp paper towel and put it in the microwave for at least 20 seconds. The moisture from the towel will get soaked in the bread and it will be going to get fresh and tastier again.
Juice fruit with Comfort
Before squeezing an orange or lemon for juicing, you need to microwave the uncut fruit for at least ten seconds. The micro is going to loosen the fibers present inside the fruit, thus, making it easy to juice the very last drop out of the fruit.
Toast nuts fast
You need to put a handful of dried nuts into the microwave-safe bowl, sprinkle a little oil on it, and heat it for almost 60 seconds. You need to stir them after each passing minute. It takes almost five minutes as a cooking time. This trick works absolutely best for sunflower seeds as well.
De-clump brown sugar
Most of the time, brown sugar is present in a hard rock form. If you need to break it down, moist a paper towel and place it in the sugar bad, then you need to zap it in the microwave for almost 25-30 seconds. The moisture from the paper towel will be transferred to the sugar and thus, making it pretty easy to scoop down the brown sugar.
Peeling veggie skin faster
Root veggies are tough to be peeled down. To make this job easy, you need to place the veggies in the microwave for two to three minutes on a low power and the skin will become more pliable for peeling and cutting. Make it sure that you need to cool down the veggies as you remove them from the microwave.
Slicing onions with a comfort
To prevent crying while chopping an onion, you need to wash the onion, trim both of the ends and leave it in the microwave for almost 30 seconds before cutting them. You usually tear up while cutting or slicing the onion as the knife damages the onion’s cells, leading to a release of sulphuric gas present inside the onion. This gas directly irritates the eyes and reacts with the tear ducts as well. Heating the onion in the micro breaks down the enzymes that boosts the gas release from the onions.
You really need to skip out while thinking to buy an expensive cappuccino machine for your kitchen as this hack is going to solve your worries for making a relaxing cup of hot cappuccino coffee. All you need to do is pour a milk into a mason jar, no more than half filled with the milk. Screw on the lid and shake vigorously as much as you can for almost 30 to 60 seconds. The milk will make a froth over the top. Now, remove the lid and microwave for almost 30 seconds so that the foam rises on top. And, your favorite cup of cappuccino is ready to appetize your taste buds.
Hope you find these instant hacks informative engough to give a try.
